A great big thank you from Ann Millard and Kerr Street Mission’s Christmas Wonders program! Once again Knox’s congregation has been very generous with their donations. We received $9,372.50 from the congregation and the Outreach Cluster matched the entire amount. The total amount that went to KSM was $18,745.00. Thanks for making the holiday season very merry for so many families and seniors this past Christmas!

Thank you so much to everyone who came out on Saturday, November 19th to join us in front of Knox for this “Doors Open to the Community” opportunity. Our Knox families were out in full force to enjoy the parade, and we offered fellow parade-goers warm cups of fair trade coffee, tea or hot chocolate donated by Ten Thousand Villages. That was a hit. We ran out of hot chocolate—twice! A big thank you goes out to our partners at Ten Thousand Villages who happily provided us with more complimentary hot chocolate to share each time we ran out.
The after school programs and music school for children in the Jane and Finch area have started their new season. The music school teachers have professionally produced 2 CDs, one with classical concert music and one with meditative music called “Hymns for Prayer”. The CDs are for sale after the service for $15 each or 2 for $25. Your purchase will help support this amazing ministry.
It has been nearly a month since the Musa family arrived and already it has been a time of adjustments for both them and us as we begin to assist them in their journey in Canada. We have learned so much together and wanted to share a bit about the Musa family with all of you who have supported us from day one.
