We’re feeding kids and their families after the day camp program at Kerr Street Mission. Can you help out? The BBQs are every Wednesday until August 15th, from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Please sign up on the sheets on the doors of the church hall. And thank you to those who have already been lending a hand.
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.
