SUNDAY WORSHIP & COMMUNION – 10AM
This Sunday we will explore the image of God as potter. We are invited to envision God up to the elbows in our MAKING and RE-MAKING, a God whose hands are permanently clay-stained by the love that is poured out of God’s artistry.
We look forward to celebrating virtual communion. Have your elements prepared!
Dave Dougall will be leading music on organ and piano and Jake Villeneuve will be providing vocal musical leadership. This Sunday will be Jake’s last Sunday with us as a music scholar. We give thanks for the many ways he has shared his musical gifts with the Knox Waterloo community and we wish him well on this next phase of his journey.
The scripture readings this week are

We invite all children and those young at heart to have play dough, plasticine, or clay available for use during the “Fun with the Young at Heart” time of the service this Sunday. We will be using our hands to get creative and explore the image of God as artist and potter.
Haiti Crisis Response
In the early morning of August 14, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit the southern peninsula of Haiti. Access to food, water, electricity, water, communication and transportation is critically difficult. Exacerbating the humanitarian crisis, Tropical Storm Grace hit the island two days later. All of this comes in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the turmoil that followed the recent assassination of Haiti’s president.
Please keep the people of Haiti in your prayers as these are very trying times for so many. Immediate needs include food, water and shelter. PWS&D is planning to respond through partners at Canadian Foodgrains Bank and ACT Alliance.

Ride for Refuge
Join Team Knox Waterloo to Ride for Refuge (i.e., from hunger) by supporting PWS&D on Saturday, October 2, 2021. The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations reports that in 2020 close to 811 million people went hungry due to climate change, conflict and the economic fallout from COVID-19. PWS&D hopes to raise $20,000 for their food security programs around the world. The Knox congregation can participate by either joining Team Knox to fundraise or by donating in support of the team.

Have you noticed? Hardly a day goes by that we don’t hear, or read, a media report about climate change and how its effects are being felt locally and around the world. Many of us are concerned, even experiencing ecological grief.
In response, For the Love of Creation is suggesting a series of “faithful climate conversations” which allow for a safe space for us to listen to one another as we share our experiences and concerns about the state of the planet and our care for it.
The Global Partners Committee of Knox Waterloo will be hosting a number of these climate conversations in the month of September. We invite and encourage people of all ages to sign up to join us. Register here. Space is limited.
