SUNDAY WORSHIP – This Sunday, February 9thwill be a special day for us. We are thanking Terry English for her many years at Knox as our Music Director. Brooke and I had the privilege of working with Terry as we planned weekly worship, special events (Anniversaries, Dedicating the new building) as well as Christmas and Easter, funerals and weddings. Terry’s work with the choir, praise band, music scholars and musicians from the community has created an amazing ministry of music at Knox and a legacy of excellence that enhances our worship experience.
During Sunday’s worship the special music will be “By God’s Hand” and “How can I keep from singing”. Congregational hymns are “Spirit of gentleness” and “Holy, holy, holy”. Hugh will be preaching “Sodium Light” based on Matthew 5:13-20 and our Sunday School will be learning about Daring Discipleship.
THANKING TERRY ENGLISH – After worship, the congregation will be invited to remain in the sanctuary for a short presentation to Terry. Then, we’ll head into the church hall for cake!
I hope you plan to be at Knox this Sunday. Please note, that the Sunday School children will come into the sanctuary after worship and join their families. (If you have little ones though, it might be best to pick them up)
WOMEN TOGETHER – Is this Monday, February 10th 7-9 pm. “Cooking with Purpose” with Kiran Bisson from Ki’s Kitchen. Ki will be speaking about food that promotes health and wellness (as well as cooking for people who have health issues). Consider bringing a friend or two to join you. PLEASE CALL INTO THE CHURCH TODAY, TO LET US KNOW YOU PLAN TO ATTEND OR SIGN YOUR NAME ON THE BULLETIN BOARD SUNDAY. WE NEED TO KNOW HOW MUCH FOOD TO PREPARE. (There is a cost of $25 per person)
SEARCH TEAM – Last Sunday, we commissioned the Search Team who will begin looking for our second minister to work with Hugh. They meet Saturday morning, February 8th and covet your prayers.
WEDNESDAY AT KNOX – Sunday is the last day to purchase your ticket for a hot lunch (lasagne) for $12. After lunch, Hugh Donnelly will share some stories as well as music! You need to purchase your ticket by this Sunday.
“My life flows on in endless song; above earth’s lamentation. I hear the sweet, though far-off hymn that hails a new creation. Through all the tumult and the strife, I hear that music ringing. It finds an echo in my soul, how can I keep from singing?”
Looking forward to Sunday,
Linda Ashfield, Associate Minister Knox Waterloo
