“Ah lovely October, as you usher in the season that awakens my soul, your awesome beauty compels my spirit to soar like a leaf caught in an autumn breeze and my heart to sing like a heavenly choir.” 

This would also be a great month for EVERYONE to wear their name tags so Hugh can get to know us. Most of us have name tags in our file folders (in the hall under the minister’s photos). If you don’t have one, we will also have some blank name tags for you to fill out.

The first Sunday of October is World Communion Sunday and so we gather at the table to celebrate the Lord’s Supper together. Twice a year children and youth (grades 3 and up) are invited to have communion with us and so this Sunday they will stay in worship. This is also the first Sunday with Rev. Hugh Donnellyas our Lead Minister. To celebrate, we have ice cream sandwiches for everyone during our fellowship time. Please spend some time after worship in the church hall and welcome Hugh to Knox.

At 3 p.m. this Sunday the Presbytery of Waterloo Wellington will come to conduct the Induction Service for Hugh. The choir will be singing, and various members of Presbytery and our Congregation will be involved in leading worship. The Rev. Dr. Bob Smith (Minister in Association at Guildwood Community Presbyterian Church, Scarborough) will preach. There will be a reception afterwards with another opportunity to welcome Hugh as well as thanking our Interim Moderator, the Rev. John Borthwick.

There is much to celebrate as we give thanks to God. We hope you will be in attendance this Sunday morning as well as Sunday afternoon. You may also want to bring some friends to the afternoon service.

Finally, the LOGOS kitchen crew are looking for a few helpers to come and peel 47 pounds of potatoes at 1:30 on Thursday, October 10th. Please let Kendra know if you can help logoskitchen@gmail.com

“Lord our God, in gratitude, in deep gratitude we pray that you would ask much from us, expect much from us, enable much by us and encourage many through us.”

In Christ,

Linda Ashfield (Associate Minister at Knox Waterloo)
