Join us on Sat., Nov 4th from 9:30-11am in the church hall for a light breakfast and lots of fun and discussion. We’re hoping to gather women of all ages, from all our church groups and women who might be new to Knox. Come along to meet some new friends and catch up with old ones. If you’re new to Knox, we send you a special invitation to join us. Breakfast will be provided. For more information please contact Carol Wilkinson via email or phone 905-845-0455.
The New Roads Team is looking forward to sharing some exciting plans that are in the works to make our building work better for our ministries and the community. We’ll be hosting an information meeting on Oct. 22nd after worship to tell you all about it. No decisions will be made at this meeting; we want to make sure everyone gets the chance to learn and ask questions. You can get a sneak peek by checking out the images the New Roads Team has on display in the hall after worship.
Join fellow parents and kids for a pizza dinner and an evening of fun Christmas-themed crafts on Nov. 17th. We’ll be decorating Christmas cards and creating some ornaments to be sold at the “Treats & Treasures” sale on November 25th. Please contact Katy Saunders by email or phone (647-876-1790) to let her know you plan to come so we can make sure there’s pizza for all. We are asking for help in collecting pine cones, Christmas ribbons and scrap fabrics to be used in our Family Craft Night creations. Your donations would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
A heartfelt congratulations and thank you to the Tweens and the congregation! Together we raised $210 at the bake table. These funds will allow the Musa children to enjoy special nutritious school lunches this year. If you missed this event, but would like to help the Tweens on their faith journey, please keep an eye out for their next Outreach activity.
Knox is seeking a leader for our Finance Team. We have three dedicated and talented individuals on the team already. We are now seeking a talented and engaged person with professional accounting and/or finance skills to be the Finance Team leader (sometimes called the Treasurer). Knox’s session and the Memorial Trust’s trustees envision that this new finance role would not only support Knox’s operations but would also provide finance leadership to the Memorial Trust. The previous finance leaders, Keith McKay and Gerhardt Samwell, have done an outstanding job but have now retired from the roles. If you are interested in learning more about this new role and how you could contribute, or could recommend someone who might be interested, please contact the Clerk of Session, Don Dinnan by email, by phone at 289-400-7553, or leave a note for Don in the church office.
The Knox session is excited to announce that Knox has chosen Brian Turnbull as our new Director of Music. Brian is well known in Oakville as the Director of the Tempus Choral Society and the Tempus~4~Us Children’s Choir. We look forward to welcoming Brian, who will be on the organ starting October 22nd.
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.
