“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.
The vote is in… a huge success!
God bless Knox and our family.
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.
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.”
Join us for church… over dinner! It’s that simple. It’s that profound. We gather face-to-face with our neighbours, around tables filled with good food which we work together to prepare and serve. Framing our time together is simple yet sacred worship of God as we celebrate holy communion. At the heart of our gathering is hearing and reflecting on scripture. Together we create space for worshipping and wondering, as we participate in radical hospitality.
It’s great to see some new members of the Oakville community featured in the local paper. A reporter from the Oakville Beaver interviewed the Musa family and a few members of the refugee sponsorship team for an article. Check it out.
