Sr. High Guest Speaker on March 29! Please plan to attend Sunday School on this date to hear our own Christy Sennema talk about issues related to the population who access the Ray of Hope. This is in preparation for your dinners that you will be cooking in May/June.

The search committee seeking an associate minister met for the first time February 8th to became acquainted with each other, our role and the immediate task before us. This month we will be preparing the documents to be sent to prospective candidates hopefully early in March. We appreciate your encouragement and request your prayer.

Student Care Packages – At this time of year we like to send a small care package to those students who are nearing the end of their first year of post-secondary schooling. If you are able to help out 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. They should be delivered to the church on Sunday, March 1st. There’s a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board. For more information please contact Femmy Birks at 519-885-0530 or email: femmy.birks@sympatico.ca.

Wed@Knox, Feb. 26th Robert Miller: Wine Pairing – Robert is the Account Manager & Sommelier at the Vine Agency & Cave Spring Cellars and will educate us in how to pair wines for that special meal. We all know that a glass of wine increases the enjoyment of a meal, but the selection of what wine to serve is always a question.

VBC is coming to Knox! Save the dates! July 13-17, 2020. Celebrate God’s Great Big Beautiful World with us!

Coffee Hour Hosts Needed – Sign up sheet is on the bulletin board! This is a great way for you/family/friends to get involved and meet people. It’s easy. Coffee is made for you and you just need to refill and clean up after the service!

Today is PWS&D Sunday! 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. Today Global Partners will be offering fair trade chocolate for sale and the opportunity to purchase Gifts of Change which directly help those in need. 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! There’s an easy-to-use online sign-up form: http://bit.ly/KnoxGreeterSignUp, or contact Rob Broberg (rob.broberg@gmail.com).
