Our nation-wide denominational youth conference will be taking place this summer at Brock University from July 2-7, 2018. Perhaps you’d like to attend! There are 4 tracks to choose from. The cost of the conference ($565) covers housing, meals, and conference supplies, and will be offset by funds our congregation has been setting aside annually to support those wishing to attend our national youth conferences. Please speak to Rev. Jacqui or Monika Platt if you are interested in attending. More information is available at: presbyterian.ca/canada-youth-2018
Each year the Chancel Guild places Easter plants at the front of the church to beautify the sanctuary on Easter Sunday. After the service, with the assistance of members of the Session, these memorial plants are delivered to members of our church who are unable to attend Knox on a regular basis. These plants that have brought so much joy to us in the sanctuary go on to bring great pleasure to those who receive them. They realize that we at Knox are still thinking of them.
The memorial plants are made possible thanks to the monetary donations made by members of our Knox community. Starting this Sunday, and then again on March 25th, members of the Chancel Guild will be in the church hall and will gladly accept your donation. A special addition in the bulletin on Easter Sunday will acknowledge loved ones you wish to remember. Thanks for considering your involvement in this special outreach project.
Enclosed in your bulletin this week, you’ll find an order form for lawn and garden products. Maple Grove United Church has invited us to participate in their sale, and for every one of our orders, Maple Grove will give back to Knox 15% of the order total! The products are excellent quality and will be delivered to your doorstep (in Oakville or at Knox), tax-free. Please fill out the form and return it with payment to Knox before Easter. This is such an easy way for you to support our New Roads project. No lawn or garden? No problem. Please ask a friend or family member to place an order and you can return it to Knox for the same benefit. Thanks, Maple Grove! Thanks, Knox!
