Most of the members of the ministry team and a number of our church leaders will be leaving for Grand Rapids, Michigan, this Wednesday (Jan. 23rd). They’ll be talking part in the Calvin Symposium on Worship, one of the world’s leading conferences on teaching, preaching, worship leadership, Christian education, and church development. Please pray for safe journeys and deep learning experiences for the members of our Knox team. They’ll return on Sunday, January 27th.
Thank you to everyone who helped decorate our “mitten tree” with scarves, mittens, and hats throughout December. We donated a total of 204 items to local schools and missions to help keep fingers and toes warm this winter. (This included 26 pairs of socks, 10 pairs of underwear, 83 hats, 29 scarves, and 56 pairs of gloves).
At the congregational meeting after our worship service on November 25th, members chose eight people to join the session. We’re so grateful we had such an amazing ballot of names to choose from; every person whose name appeared on the ballot is incredibly gifted by God, and we’re grateful they agreed to let their names stand as nominees to the eldership. Here are the names of those chosen to serve this term. Our next eldership election will be at the end of 2020.
