We’re taking a break from our Wednesday Dinner Church services during the summer months. This gives our team some extra time for rest. We invite you to join us for Sunday morning services, which will remain at 10 a.m. each week. Dinner Church will kick off again in the fall.
Our Knox congregation is SO generous with donations to the life and work of the church. Thank you! If you do plan to make a donation, please remember to designate where you’d like the money to go by making a note on the memo line of your cheque, or let us know in the message field if you make a donation online with Canada Helps.
A member of the congregation has asked for donations of any small pocket New Testaments suitable for sharing the gospel with new Christians. (So probably not the older King James Versions.) You may drop them off either in the church office or in the “Donation” basket on the table in the church library. Many thanks.
We’re excited to announce that Knox has been selected as one of seven community hubs for Oakville Ready! This pilot project, created as a partnership between the Town of Oakville and Halton Environmental Network, seeks to ensure residents will have safe places to go for information and resources if the community ever faces a severe weather event like a flood or ice storm. The project is officially launching at an event on Tuesday, May 28th from 1 to 4 p.m., and you are invited. It will be at the Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre at 2302 Bridge Road in Oakville. You can RSVP at eventbrite.ca/e/oakvilleready-tickets-61655509288.
Knox and St. Jude’s have joined forces to offer a week-long Vacation Bible School this summer. With the theme “To Mars and Beyond,” this fun and inspiring VBS day camp is open to kids aged 5 to 11. It will run at St. Jude’s Church August 12th to 16th, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily. Space is limited, so register soon! The week-long event costs $80 for one child, $50 for the first additional sibling, and $20 for each additional sibling after that. Please register on our EventBrite page. Registration is extended to July 22nd!
Check out the March/April issue of Faith Today magazine and read the cover story written by Knox Oakville’s own Amy MacLachlan. It’s a beautiful piece about food, community, faith, hurt and healing. It also features a sidebar about our own Dinner Church at Knox—one of the many ways we, in Rev. Jacqui’s words, “find real connection with friends and strangers-yet-to-become-friends. We leave Dinner Church nourished in body and in spirit, having tasted Heaven itself.”
