Knox has an annual opportunity to make a lump-sum payment to reduce the mortgage principal, a practice which has been instrumental in reducing our overall monthly mortgage payments. Please consider making a contribution as you are able by July 20th with a note indicating to apply the donation toward the annual Mortgage Principal Paydown.
VACATION BIBLE CAMP
Virtual VBC 2021 is next week, July 12-16. VBC is a joint ecumenical ministry with Knox Waterloo, Waterloo North Mennonite and Erb Street Mennonite. This year VBC is a bit different than usual and includes “VBC in a BOX” and an interactive online classroom which includes songs, crafts, dramas, recipes, and bible stories. Boxes will be picked up/delivered this week to those who have registered. Knox will be holding in prayer all those participating. We give thanks for all the staff and volunteers who have contributed to and have supported this ministry.
KNOX REOPENING DATE
September 12 is the target date for reopening Knox for in-person worship. The Knox COVID Health & Safety Team will provide more details closer to the date. All health and safety protocols required at that time will be followed.
The memorial stones used in Indigenous Peoples Sunday have been placed in the garden on the west side of the Knox building. Offer a prayer for Peace as you walk or drive by.

The next you’re dazzled by the beauty of it all”
