Sunday, February 23rd, is PWS&D Sunday! Guy Smagghe, the director of PWS&D, will be our guest speaker . It is a day to celebrate the ways our church is responding around the world to help lift vulnerable families out of hunger, poverty and oppression. We also pray for those who struggle for basic necessities, and think about how we can help make a difference. On Feb 9, 16 and 23 Global Partners will be offering fair trade chocolate for sale as well as the opportunity to purchase Gifts of Change which directly help those in need. Please visit our table during Coffee Hour.

Can you help? We need Knox Sunday welcome greeters. It’s a great way to prepare for worship as you meet familiar and new faces. All you need to do is pick a Sunday, show up at Knox by 9:40 am, and put on your most welcoming smile!
