Wed@Knox, Feb 6th – Margaret Brockett & Sarah Flanagan: Sanctuary – Established in 2013 by Dr. Michael Stephenson to fill an unmet needed in the Waterloo Region, the vision for Sanctuary Refugee Health Centre is to equip and support refugee newcomers in resolving or managing their challenges as they adapt to life in what seems like an alien country. Refugee newcomers are inherently resilient. With appropriate care and support they can be enabled over a period of time to enjoy well-being as contributing Canadian citizens. Sanctuary offers that care and support.
The grade 4-6 LOGOS group needs your support to bring their LOGOS Canstruction creation to life and help our community partners at Waterloo Region Foodbank. Canned goods and cash donations will be collected in the atrium after Sunday service Feb 3, 10 & 17, or can be dropped off in the office through the week. The kids’ creation will be on display in the atrium Feb 21-28 – all non-perishable goods donated to the Foodbank. If you have questions please contact Nicole Bardeau at firstname.lastname@example.org or Liz Fryer at email@example.com

Student Care Packages: At this time of year we like to send a small care package to our students who are nearing the end of their first year of post-secondary schooling. If you can help by providing 2 dozen homemade cookies that would be very much appreciated. Cookies should be nut-free and easy to pack as some will be sent by mail, and should be delivered to the church on Sunday, Mar.3. A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board. For more information, contact Femmy Birks at 519-885-0530 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Knox Inclusion Committee in partnership with Generous Space Ministries is showing BELONGING IN THE BODY: Transgender Journeys of Faith on March 3, 2019, 2:30 pm here at Knox. The one hour film follows the lives of several transgender Christians through their experiences of church, scripture and faith. Panel discussion and reception to follow.
Yemen Crisis Response: Yemen is the worst humanitarian crisis the world currently faces. Four years of conflict has resulted in widespread hunger and a devastating outbreak of cholera. PWS&D, along with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, will be responding in Yemen with emergency food assistance and water and sanitation programs. Please consider helping out. You can make a donation through Knox, by mailing a cheque, donating online, or calling 1-800-619-7301×291. Please mark your donation “Yemen” (https://presbyterian.ca/pwsd).
