LOGOS is a mid week program nurturing faith and relationships for children and youth. However, it wouldn’t happen without the support of parents and other adults. Part of the requirement of participating in LOGOS is that every family attend a MANDATORY meeting before LOGOS starts in the fall. We revisit the WHY we do what we do and listen for where God might be calling us to share our gifts. This year we are scheduling 2 meetings to choose between: Thursday September 6 at 7 pm or Sunday September 9 at 11:30 am.
Job Opportunities at Knox Waterloo:
Event Attendants: Knox is fortunate to have a facility that is much in demand in our community. We give space to our partners in ministry and have rental scale that offers preferential rates to not-for-profit agencies.

Mission Moments: Attending to physical and spiritual needs in Saskatoon
The cost of living in Saskatchewan is rising, making it even more challenging for those on the margins to make ends meet. Saskatoon Native Circle Ministry understands that, when times are tough, people need spiritual as well as physical care. With support from Presbyterians Sharing, the ministry offers a clothing and food program, a mid-week worship service, an arts program, and crisis and spiritual counseling. Rooted in First Nations’ traditions and gospel teachings, SNCM offers prayer, friendship, and radical hospitality to those who are struggling.
Presbyterians Sharing reaches out to people in need
A history of Canadian mission in Taiwan
History matters! Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing support Louise Gamble as she works with our partner church, the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan, to transcribe and translate reports and correspondence of the Canadian North Formosa Mission. These documents are records of the development of the Christian Church in North Formosa, from the point of view of its missionaries. It includes over 7,000 documents from 1868 to 1923. Louise works in partnership with her talented and dedicated Taiwanese colleague, Mr. James Chen. They are working on the third and final series (1915–1923), which documents events during WWI as well as issues such as Canadian church union and the growing theological tensions in North America. When finished, this series will likely be over 1500 pages!
Presbyterians Sharing supports international partners
On this day when Canadians mark 151 years of Confederation, we pray that we will be faithful stewards as well as people who strive for freedom and justice for all of God’s children. May we pray for our leaders as well as using our voices to guide them as they make difficult and momentous decisions.
