RADIO MINISTRY SUNDAY
October 17th @ 10 am

This week we celebrate our radio ministry through 98.5 CKWR FM radio. We celebrate all those who join us for worship and make connections through the Knox Radio Ministry.  We will give you an inside look at this ministry and some of the wonderful people who are grateful for the ability to listen in through this ministry.

Through various scriptures in the Old and New Testaments, we will explore the expansive nature of God. There are a myriad of images of God given to us through the Bible: God as hen, eagle, wisdom, living water, gardener, mother, and the list goes on.  Together, we will discover how expansive language speaks to our ability to be reformed in our thinking about God.

In-Person Sunday School for Junior & Senior High starts on October 17th!

Youth (Gr. 7-12) in-person Sunday School will begin on October 17th! Please email Carole to let her know in advance whether you will be attending so she can set up and plan safely distanced seating.

Parents of youth!
Please book your seat with the Knox Reservation System ahead of time so you are guaranteed a seat in Worship!
Pre-school to grade 6 will remain online until further notice.

They’re back – Cookies in a jar!!


This awesome fundraiser is back for 2021, after getting approval from the Knox Health & Safety Team. The LOGO’s Jr High will be making and selling cookies in a jar at a cost of $10. Donations are also welcome. We are only making oatmeal chocolate chip jars this year with a cap of 150 jars so order soon, so you don’t miss out!

While we hope to be shopping and donating to the Tree of Angels, we have not yet confirmed this due to potential Covid restrictions. Rest assured there are numerous worthy causes we can consider; PWS&D and Ray of Hope are just two of several options.

You can pre-order up to Friday, November 5th by sending an email to Vaughn, the Knox office, or calling (519) 886-4150. Please provide your name and how many jars you would like to order. Jars will be available for pick up at the church starting on Monday, November 29th (watch for further details on this).

Thank you in advance for your support!!
Vaughn, Kathy, Jeff and the LOGO’s Junior High youth!
