Save the date! Doors Open Oakville… Doors Open Knox!! Did you know that our magnificent stained glass windows are among the four best in Canada? All the more reason to join us as we open our doors to Oakville on Saturday, October 1st from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. People will be invited to visit our sanctuary and to find out more about what we do here at Knox. Last year, we welcomed over 300 people and the bell was ringing all day!
Would you be willing to lend an hour or two to provide a welcome to our visitors? You don’t need an encyclopedic knowledge of Knox history. It’s all there next to each of the windows. Just bring a warm smile and a friendly handshake. Stay tuned for opportunities to help, to be posted online and in the church hall on upcoming Sundays.
Questions? Call Heather Carey (905-847-3224) or Louise Fortier (905-582-6621).
P.S. St Judes and St John’s are opening their doors too. Let’s show them how it’s done!
Rebecca Jess will be leading services at Knox throughout the month of August. Rebecca grew up in Uxbridge, Ont., where she spent a lot of time singing in choirs and performing in community musical theatre. She attended Queen’s University where she received her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Drama and English and her Bachelor of Education.
She’s currently a Master of Divinity student at Knox College in Toronto. Her call to ministry came while she was the co-executive director of the Cairn Family of Camps in Baysville, Ont.
Rebecca just recently returned from Charlotte, North Carolina, where she was the seminary intern with a youth mission programme at Myers Park Presbyterian Church. She looks forward to spending the rest of August reading, singing with her band, visiting Cairn camps, and worshipping with Knox!
