Midnight Madness is coming up on July 13th. Stop by for a hotdog, visit our sanctuary, use the facilities, change your baby, or just say hello! Volunteers will be on hand to welcome you.
July 19th it’s our turn to provide sandwiches for Evangel Hall. This street mission provides nutritious food to many of Toronto’s most vulnerable people. And it’s easy! Just make up a loaf of sandwiches and drop it off at Knox on Wednesday or before 10 a.m. on Thursday the 19th so our driver can take it to Evangel Hall. All the sandwiches are much appreciated.
Save the date: Friday, Sept. 14th at 6:15 p.m. We are having a FUNdraiser! Join us for an evening comedy/mystery dinner theatre! If you can’t make this date, you could buy tickets as a gift for a family member or close friend. Details and ticket information to come soon! Contact Jan Carnall at 905-844-8776 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to be a part of it. We will need lots of help before and on this date. Please share your talents!
This fall our intrepid choir director, Brian Turnbull, will be starting up a children’s choir to sing on special Sundays. Our own Knox kids are welcome, but so are their friends from the wider community. Practices will begin on Sept. 12th, and will run Wednesdays from 4:30-5:15 p.m. with a snack afterward. The choir is geared toward kids from kindergarten to grade 6, but children a little older or a little younger are welcome as well. We look forward to hearing your beautiful voices!
Our nation-wide denominational youth conference will be taking place this summer at Brock University from July 2-7, 2018. Perhaps you’d like to attend! There are 4 tracks to choose from. The cost of the conference ($565) covers housing, meals, and conference supplies, and will be offset by funds our congregation has been setting aside annually to support those wishing to attend our national youth conferences. Please speak to Rev. Jacqui or Monika Platt if you are interested in attending. More information is available at: presbyterian.ca/canada-youth-2018
Each year the Chancel Guild places Easter plants at the front of the church to beautify the sanctuary on Easter Sunday. After the service, with the assistance of members of the Session, these memorial plants are delivered to members of our church who are unable to attend Knox on a regular basis. These plants that have brought so much joy to us in the sanctuary go on to bring great pleasure to those who receive them. They realize that we at Knox are still thinking of them.
The memorial plants are made possible thanks to the monetary donations made by members of our Knox community. Starting this Sunday, and then again on March 25th, members of the Chancel Guild will be in the church hall and will gladly accept your donation. A special addition in the bulletin on Easter Sunday will acknowledge loved ones you wish to remember. Thanks for considering your involvement in this special outreach project.
Enclosed in your bulletin this week, you’ll find an order form for lawn and garden products. Maple Grove United Church has invited us to participate in their sale, and for every one of our orders, Maple Grove will give back to Knox 15% of the order total! The products are excellent quality and will be delivered to your doorstep (in Oakville or at Knox), tax-free. Please fill out the form and return it with payment to Knox before Easter. This is such an easy way for you to support our New Roads project. No lawn or garden? No problem. Please ask a friend or family member to place an order and you can return it to Knox for the same benefit. Thanks, Maple Grove! Thanks, Knox!
