Knox Church gives God thanks for the gift of LOGOS and the 25 years of this ministry in our midst. We remember the research of our then Christian Education Director, Shirley Carter and her recommendation that Knox consider LOGOS. We remember the March Break week in 1993 that Rev. Brooke and Rev. Linda Ashfield, Elizabeth Denbeigh and Lawrie and Shirley Carter spent in Troy, New York to learn all about LOGOS and the decision they made to create a full LOGOS program (from nursery care to grade 13) at Knox. We give God thanks that Elizabeth Denbeigh responded to God’s call to not only be our first Director, but to lay a good foundation and build the Knox LOGOS program from the ground up. We are indebted to her commitment to the vision, her many hours of work, her willingness to talk to every group at Knox and her enthusiasm and leadership as she guided us in the LOGOS way. We also give thanks that God has blessed this ministry with children, youth, committed parents, adults and directors. May God continue to enrich LOGOS at Knox as together, we grow in Christ.
