In grateful celebration of the graduation of his grandson, Nicholas Coupland, from Business School at Kennesaw State University, Atlanta, a donation has been made by Gordon Coyne to our Music Ministries. In addition to his Buisness Degree, ‘Nick’ also earned a Certificate from the Joel A. Katz Music and Entertainment Buisness Program.
Please refrain from using Scented Products so everyone can safely visit and worship at Knox. Thank You!

Wed@Knox, Dec 4 – Karla Richards: MCC repurpose Centre Elmira – Located at 6 Arthur Street Elmira, the innovative MCC repurpose Centre is in its second year. Karla Richards, the general manager, will astound us with facts and figures of what they have accomplished so far. Shoppers pay by weight for their purchases, and unsold items are repurposed and recycled into unique and usable forms.
Wed@Knox Dec 11th Annual Christmas Luncheon (turkey dinner) and the singing of carols. Tickets are $12; available until December 10th.
We invite the broader Knox community to our annual LOGOS Christmas service on December 12th at 6:45 pm. A yearly highlight of this service is lighting candles as we stand together around the inside walls of the sanctuary and sing Silent Night. You are also welcome to come to our Christmas dinner that begins at 6 pm before the service. Please let Jennifer Yessis (Reist) know if you are planning to attend the Christmas dinner at 6 pm for $5 by emailing email@example.com before December 9th. We have capacity for 150 to attend our dinner and will need to cap the dinner at that number.
The Tech Team urgently needs a couple of volunteers to join each of the sound, multimedia and video teams. If you are interested, please send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org or see Eric Gaudet (sound and video) or Andrew Church (multimedia).
