The Knox Knitters would like to thank all those in the congregation who brought beautiful knitting for our sale on September 29th, as well as beautiful wool for future projects.

“Willing Hands Achieve Miracles…” Well, achieved a mystery anyway…
A big fat thank you to all who volunteered their time, strength and talents for our Mystery Theatre event! Lots of positive comments have come in. We had fun, put Knox on the map, and made new friends and contacts.

During the month of September, the Chancel Choir will be holding welcoming practices to encourage new members to join our choir. During the welcoming practice, you will be paired with an existing member who will show you the ropes, and time will be provided so you can become familiar with the music and the flow of the practice. The anthems and introits chosen for September are mostly sung in unison, which means everyone sings the same tune. The first practice is Wednesday, September 5th at 7:30 p.m. to prepare for Rally Sunday. On September 12th, the practice begins at 8 p.m. following Dinner Church. Please speak to Brian Turnbull or any member of the choir and we will have a folder ready for you. This is a great time to join us—our aim is the fill the chancel this year.
This 13-week recovery support group is a way to seek solace and healing after the death of a loved one. The next series begins on Wednesday, September 12th, and will run weekly until December 5th.

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!
