Join us for church… over dinner! It’s that simple. It’s that profound. We gather face-to-face with our neighbours, around tables filled with good food which we work together to prepare and serve. Framing our time together is simple yet sacred worship of God as we celebrate holy communion. At the heart of our gathering is hearing and reflecting on scripture. Together we create space for worshipping and wondering, as we participate in radical hospitality.
The Knox Tweens are busy baking yummy cookies and other sweet treats in exchange for your donation of loonies and toonies. The funds they raise will help support the Musa kids, allowing them to participate in special school lunch programs, like pizza and sub days, just like we do. Come see us in the church hall after the service on Oct. 1st. All donations are welcome!
This summer, incredible numbers of people discovered our magnificent church as we opened our doors for downtown Oakville events. We’re opening our doors to our Oakville community once again on Saturday, Sept. 30th from 10 a.-m. to 4 p.m. as part of Doors Open Halton. People will be invited to visit our sanctuary and to find out more about what we do here at Knox.
“Planned Giving”: What’s it all about? How can I give a gift to Knox to further our church ministries? Luckily, there are a multitude of ways to give in addition to our weekly givings. Please join us as we welcome Janice Meighan, Development Manager for the Stewardship and Planned Giving office of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. On Friday, Oct. 20th, Janice will offer learning seminars at either 3 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. so we can all learn more about Planned Giving. Refreshments will be provided as well as childcare if needed.
