Hope During Difficult Days
The racially motived violence and subsequent protests we have been reading about in the news has made our hearts heavy. As a church, we stand with all who have experienced prejudiced or racist attitudes or behaviours and we work in solidarity with those who are peacefully shaping a world built on equality, justice and love. One of the core values of Knox Waterloo is: “We welcome all ages, gender identities, racial and cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, abilities, economic circumstances, and family configurations, as we seek to provide a safe space for each person to fully participate in the life and mission of the church.” In his ministry, Jesus recognized the dignity of all people and spoke openly against the systems of oppression which denied such dignity. May we follow in his footsteps.
Worship at Knox
Live streaming on Sunday morning has been a wonderful way for many people, near and far, to connect with Knox. Last Sunday’s worshipping community gathered through the use of almost 200 devices. If you are unable to catch the service live, you can find past services on our YouTube channel.
Knox Net Café
Sign up for this week’s café using this link.
This week’s café is on Thursday at 10AM.
A small team has been established to begin planning for the eventual reopening of Knox. They will be meeting for the first time this week. Pray for them as they begin this work.
Do you play an instrument or sing? Were you unable to commit to weekly Thursday night choir practices, but see an opportunity to create music at your leisure from the comfort of your own home? Would you be interested in participating virtually in music worship at Knox? Please email Mary-Catherine at firstname.lastname@example.org, outlining the instrument you play (or that you’d like to be marked down as a singer). MC will start assembling a list of people to call on for various virtual music projects at Knox (solos, duets, group projects). Don’t worry if you feel tech-challenged, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know!
Let someone know what they mean to you. Repeat every so often 🙂
