CELEBRATION The 10th Anniversary of the Knox Waterloo Building
On Sunday, we will offer thanks for the gift of sacred space.
(And we’ll even open a 10 year time capsule!)
HAPPY 10TH ANNIVERSARY!
On May 29, 2011, worship began in the old church building, and concluded in the present sanctuary after a celebratory procession into the new building.
On page four of the June 2011 issue of ACross the Pews you’ll find some pictures of that day. Find it here.
Here’s a link to a short history of the buildings in which the Knox Community has gathered.
Conversation with Knox Youth
On Sunday, June 6th at 11:30am on zoom, Hugh & Courtney invite all youth, Jr. and Sr. High, to join us for a conversation about the issues related to the inclusion of our LGBTQI siblings in The Presbyterian Church in Canada, a discussion which will be part of General Assembly (June 6-9), the national gathering of our church. We hope to make people aware of that status of such conversations in our denomination, and look forward to an interactive conversation. Bring your questions and curiosity. Come and help us explore how Knox Waterloo can continue to show leadership within our denomination.
God’s love includes everyone.
Email Courtney with any questions.

RAINBOW COMMUNION REPORT
Rainbow Communion is a special committee formed by the 2017 General Assembly. This committee had been empowered to invite LGBTQI people and others to tell stories of harm done to them within and by the church, and to share their stories of God’s grace experienced by them in Christian ministry. The completed report, written by committee conveners Sue Senior and the Rev. Dr. Bob Faris, will be presented to the 2021 General Assembly, June 6-9. The report–in full or in summary–is available in text and audio formats at this site. The whole church is invited to hear the stories shared, and to respond to the call to confession and healing for harm done.
