Wed@Knox, March 11th Meaghan Mechler – What Lies Beneath – There are more living organisms in a handful of soil than humans on our entire planet. Though soils seem inert, with a closer inspection we find that they are thriving universes of their own! Come and be introduced to the wild world of soil life and explore ways you can continue to steward the land from the ground up.

The Search for an Associate Minister is now open to receiving applications. If you know anyone you feel would be a good candidate, refer them to the Knox Congregational Profile on our website which explains how to apply or have them contact search@knoxwaterloo.ca. Applications will be received through the month of March until the closing date of Friday, April 3, 2020. Please pray that the hearts of good candidates will be prompted to respond.

New Members Get Together – If you are interested in becoming a member here at Knox or would like to know more about the congregation, we are hosting a lunch on Sunday, April 19th after worship. Please contact Charlene Janes or one of the ministers (519-886-4150) by April 12th or sign up on the bulletin board. We will be receiving new members on Sunday, May 31st in worship.

Please bring in your Prayer Shawls and pneumonia vests by March 19th. A Dedication Service will be held on March 22nd.

During Lent, there is a Prayer Bowl in the Atrium. You may place your prayers in the bowl. We may bring these prayers to Sunday Worship, but will not mention names.

The Lenten Prayer Room is open – it is upstairs in Room 200 (you can use the elevator or stairs). It will be open Monday to Friday during church office hours as well as before and after church. A schedule is on the door for any Sunday School or LOGOS groups who want to use the prayer room for their classes (please reserve your time). Theme is “In the wilderness with Jesus” Prayer Room will be open until Easter.

Lenten Devotional Readings will be sent out each day during Lent to all members and adherents whose email is in the church’s Power Church. The readings (which began on Ash Wednesday) go to Easter. If you haven’t received them already and would like to, please let the church office know (email charlene.janes@knoxwaterloo.ca). Thank you.

VBC is July 13-17, 2020. Register online now for God’s Great Big Beautiful World! Volunteers needed for a variety of roles! See Carole if you are interested. Registration and info available at: https://knoxwaterloo.ca/home/?p=10972

Give it up for the Earth is a campaign during Lent to raise awareness about climate change. As Christians, God calls us to love and care for all of creation. So, for 40 days, we are invited to make changes in our own lives to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We can also send a postcard to the federal government calling on them to do more to address this issue. More information, and postcards, are available at the Global Partners table during Coffee Hour.

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!
