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.
During the month of July, up to 100 children from the Jane Finch neighbourhood of Toronto are expected at the all-day, three week summer camp. They will be given a safe place to learn, play and hear the Christian message in story and music. They will also be provided with snacks and nutritious lunches every day. Funds for the camp and the programs have fallen short because of the emphasis on fundraising for the new community centre. If you could see fit to support the camp and the programs that would be greatly appreciated.
Building off the success of last year’s partnership, this summer Knox Oakville will be the sole partner of Kerr Street BBQs, providing a free meal to the most vulnerable families in our community. BBQs will be every Wednesday starting on July 4th and will conclude on August 15th (8 weeks). Set up is at 3:30 pm and usually wraps up around 6-6:30 pm. Please sign up on the sheets in MacMillan Hall.
