Worship & Communion
- The Rev. Mark Gedcke and Glenda Ribey will lead worship on Sunday. The text will be Matthew 15:21-28, another challenging passage from this gospel.
- We will mark World Communion Sunday by celebrating the sacrament. Those attending in-person may bring your own communion or may use a commercial, individually packaged communion set which will be available in the lobby as you enter.
- Seating for the service on October 4 and October 11 (Thanksgiving) is now open at https://www.ticketor.com/knoxwaterloo
Emails reporting to be from Hugh have been received by some people from Knox. This type of phishing scam has been common in large churches for several years now. The scammer creates an email address, impersonates the minister, and sends messages to congregants asking for help. What to look for: if an email purporting to be from Hugh comes from an email address other than email@example.com, then it is NOT Hugh. Do not reply to such messages.
Congratulations and Happy 100th Birthday to Ruth Larsen

Many, many thanks to everyone who helped make last weekend’s Ashfield Retirement Celebration such a success! The party is posted online, and you can watch it at: https://youtu.be/b1CKWCiU9CM
Thank you from the Ashfields!
Many thanks to the planning committee and all who participated in Sunday’s Retirement Celebration. The worship and event afterwards were wonderful, and we were deeply moved by the words, videos, music, prayers and decorations. So glad to have a few laughs and to mark our 31 years together with you. The retirement gifts are much appreciated, and we are grateful to the congregation for their generosity. We are excited about this community of faith’s future and know you will move forward in the Spirit seeking God’s will as you live out the good news we have in Jesus. With affection, love and gratitude – Linda and Brooke
For what are you thankful? Send Hugh some photographs! Some of these gratitude photos will be used for Thanksgiving Worship on October 11. Email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and enter “Gratitude Photo” in the subject line. Please submit by October 5th.
Take a moment and look out a window. What do you see? Find something for which to be grateful. Enjoy that view for a while…let it really sink in. There is beauty in the world.
Lead Minister, Knox Waterloo
