The Town of Oakville and Environment Canada are urging people not to travel during this ice storm, and predictions are it’s going to get even worse by morning. We want to make sure everyone stays safe, so we’re cancelling our formal worship service on April 15th. Please stay home, stay off the roads, and keep yourself and your family safe.

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!
A word from the Property Management Team: “Time for a Refresh.” Due to increasing difficulties securing the main Lakeshore and Dunn Street doors, the Property Team is undertaking a project to renovate and restore their operation and paint. A firm from Hamilton (Lower City Joinery) has been selected to undertake this important and highly visible maintenance project.
Starting with the Lakeshore Doors, they will be removed and taken to the firm’s workshop in Hamilton. Dry rot will be repaired, paint stripped and hardware replaced and polished. While the doors are away being repaired, temporary painted plywood will be installed over the door openings. Access to the Narthex will still be maintained through the Dunn Street tower doors.
The cost of the project is approximately $20,000 and is being funded by a very generous family wishing to stay anonymous! Praise the Lord for their generous spirit! If you have any questions please speak to Duncan Low or Barbara Browne. Exciting times at Knox!
