Lenten Prayer Room is located in the Preschool Room this year. It will be open during office hours, Sunday before and after worship and on Thursdays during LOGOS.
Daily Lenten Reflections – Our Lenten theme this year is “Loving God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind.” Each day during Lent, Linda is sending out a devotional based on a booklet from the Episcopal Church, USA. If you would like to receive these, please make sure your email is in the power church database. You can check with Ruth Song ruth.song[at]knoxwaterloo.ca You can also find these reflections on our church website – just click the button Daily Lent Devotional on the Home page.
Please refrain from using SCENTED PRODUCTS and perfume so everyone can safely visit and worship at Knox. Thank You!
The Knox Fitness & Fellowship group in grateful appreciation have made a donation to support Knox Waterloo.
