July 19th it’s our turn to provide sandwiches for Evangel Hall. This street mission provides nutritious food to many of Toronto’s most vulnerable people. And it’s easy! Just make up a loaf of sandwiches and drop it off at Knox on Wednesday or before 10 a.m. on Thursday the 19th so our driver can take it to Evangel Hall. All the sandwiches are much appreciated.
We’re feeding kids and their families after the day camp program at Kerr Street Mission. Can you help out? The BBQs are every Wednesday until August 15th, from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Please sign up on the sheets on the doors of the church hall. And thank you to those who have already been lending a hand.
Save the date: Friday, Sept. 14th at 6:15 p.m. We are having a FUNdraiser! Join us for an evening comedy/mystery dinner theatre! If you can’t make this date, you could buy tickets as a gift for a family member or close friend. Details and ticket information to come soon! Contact Jan Carnall at 905-844-8776 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to be a part of it. We will need lots of help before and on this date. Please share your talents!
This fall our intrepid choir director, Brian Turnbull, will be starting up a children’s choir to sing on special Sundays. Our own Knox kids are welcome, but so are their friends from the wider community. Practices will begin on Sept. 12th, and will run Wednesdays from 4:30-5:15 p.m. with a snack afterward. The choir is geared toward kids from kindergarten to grade 6, but children a little older or a little younger are welcome as well. We look forward to hearing your beautiful voices!
We are delighted to announce the hiring of Connie Wardle to the position of Church Administrator for Knox. Connie is already deeply involved at Knox as an Elder, on the New Roads Team, and as our Webmaster to name a few ministries. She was selected from over 20 applicants that responded to the advertisement. Connie on board has given Shirley an extra measure of joy and a sense of peace as she retires, knowing that everything is being left in such capable hands!
Please pray for the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada as it meets in Waterloo, June 3-6, as well as for our own Connie Wardle who is attending as a Commissioner for our presbytery. The General Assembly is the highest court of the PCC, and it meets annually to carry out the business of our denomination.
