Our Annual General Meeting is coming up on Sunday, March 5th (along with our international potluck lunch). You can pick up a print copy of the annual report after church, or save some trees and download a pdf copy now. Don’t forget to make notes and flag anything you have questions about so you can ask at the meeting.
The Knox family rallied around the plea for more sandwiches, and we had an amazing 340 sandwiches delivered on Thursday to provide dinner for the homeless in Toronto! (That was 43 loaves!) THANK YOU to everyone who responded.
We will need you again on the third Thursday of each month, whenever you are able. Watch for the reminder announcement. Praise the Lord for this wonderful church family!
Photo sittings are booked for the end of March with a second week in April. Please choose your photo sitting time and reserve your spot on the schedules available in the church hall. You’ll receive a free portrait and free directory.
Volunteers are needed to staff the sign-up table, host the sittings and make calls. Please email Gary or call the Church Office 905-844-3472.
As it turns out, more of our leaders are away this month than we initially expected. Looking for something fun to do on Friday, February 24th? C’mon out and teach a craft, serve a meal, help tidy up! Many hands make light work, and plus… Messy Church is F-U-N!! Offering your time and talent from 6-8 p.m. on Friday makes a difference in the lives of so many families. Let Zelda Samwell know you’re available!
Sunday, February 26th will be a single service at 10:30 a.m. and one-year celebration of our refugee sponsorship initiative! Please be sure to join us as dignitaries and special friends have been invited as well. A reception in the church hall will follow worship.
If you are available, we are in need of people to help with the set up on Saturday, Feb. 25th or with clean-up after the event on Sunday. If you would like to help, please contact Amy MacLachlan. Thank you for your support!
We’re in for a real treat. Don’t miss out on the chance to see the Watoto Children’s Choir here at Knox on March 18th at 6 p.m. Tickets are free! Get yours now on our Eventbrite page.
In January 2017, Watoto launched a whole new Watoto Children’s Choir production, Signs & Wonders that celebrates the joy of salvation. The choir, whose members are orphans and other vulnerable children, will present new worship music from Watoto Church in Uganda and invite audiences to experience an encounter with God.

Many thanks to Sue McBay for leading this ministry this year.

The Lighthouse for Grieving Children has moved to a new home! They are now located in a recently refurbished and larger building at the corner of Rebecca St. and Bronte Rd. They had outgrown their former space in downtown Oakville, which is a testament not only to the need for this kind of grief support in Halton, but also to the sheer hardwork and determination of Lighthouse staff dedicated to providing support services to children.
