Now that Rev. Jacqui’s call to Knox has been upheld by the presbytery, she’ll be formally inducted at a special service at 7 p.m. on June 4th. Everyone is welcome. Attending an induction service is a great way to show support for a minister.
In past years, we’ve held one service at 9:30 a.m. in July and August. This year the session has decided to bump that summer schedule forward another month. Beginning on Sunday, June 4th we’ll be meeting together for worship at one service at 9:30 a.m. We’ll continue with a 9:30 a.m. service until the end of August. […]
Please sign up to teach a Sunday during the Summer. Your time will give our dedicated regular volunteers a much needed summer rest! The curriculum is all organized and provided. This is such a great way to get to know those little faces you see running around on Sundays. Sign up sheets are in the church hall or send Zelda an email.
Easter Sunday Worship is for all ages! Just a reminder that our Son_rise service will take place on the Lakeshore Road front lawn of Knox Oakville (weather permitting). All are welcome, and please dress for the weather. A warm breakfast follows in the church hall, and then a grand service of worship will be held in the sanctuary at 10:30 a.m.
While there will be toddler and nursery care available, families are encouraged to worship together in the sanctuary. (There will be no church school.) The Christian Education cluster will be offering Easter-themed activity books at varying age levels for children to enjoy during the service and to take home with them afterwards.
On June 3rd, the Lighthouse for Grieving Children (an amazing organization supporting children and families coping with the loss of a loved one) will be holding its annual fundraiser in Oakville. We’ve already got several people interested in participating, and we’d love to have more! Let’s get a large Knox team together to support this much-needed ministry, and bond as a congregation at the same time! The special event features a 5K run and walk, as well as a 1K fun-run, and a 100 M dash, so there’s something for everyone (kids are welcome, too)!
Please speak with Amy MacLachlan if you’re interested, or, to learn more, visit the Lighthouse website grievingchildrenlighthouse.org.
Knox is the title sponsor of Oakville Parent-Child Centre’s annual Learn and Grow Together Parenting Conference. As such, Knox-goers can attend this special event for FREE!! Because of this perk, Knox needs to compile its own list of interested people, and send it directly to the conference organizers (rather than registering online through Eventbrite).
You are not going to want to miss Dr. Gordon Neufeld, author of Hold On to To Your Kids, as he speaks about “What Children Need to Thrive and Flourish.”
If you would like to attend the conference on May 13th, please speak with Rev. Jacqui.
