Sunday Worship – February 20th at 10 am
This Sunday we explore Jesus’ teaching about loving our enemy and the difficult practice of forgiveness. How can the process of forgiveness bring us freedom and give us back power? Jesus calls us to put love in the foreground as it can transform our relationships and way of living.

Scripture: Genesis 45:3-11, 15 and Luke 6:27-38

New Livestream Providers

Our longstanding livestream provider “NOW Media Services” is ceasing operations in the near future so our livestream is branching out to new platforms! You can now watch our services on YouTube and Twitch. We may even add other platforms in the future. For the most up-to-date details, please visit (and bookmark): https://knoxwaterloo.ca/live.
Our stream will still be available on our NOW page for a little while but you should plan on making the transition to YouTube or Twitch as soon as possible.
KNOX HEALTH & SAFETY COVID UPDATE
Knox is deeply concerned about the continued burden COVID-19 is placing on our health care system and the disruption to families dealing with COVID illness and COVID isolation. Waterloo region continues to care for more patients than there are beds in local hospitals, and as a result of this most recent wave, very few ICU beds remain available. For these reasons we encourage caution as we resume in person worship and programming at Knox. We are grateful for your patience as Knox slowly eases restrictions.

Update:

  • Limited capacity in-person worship and indoor programming at Knox will resume on February 27, 2022 with Proof of Vaccination required
  • Effective March 1, 2022, Proof of Vaccination will not be required (aligning with Ontario Government intention of lifting of this restriction)
  • Seating reservation requirement will continue
  • The wearing of proper-fitting N95 or KN95 masks is required at all times while on church property
  • Social distancing required at all times
  • No food permitted
  • Congregational singing not permitted
  • Passive screening: do not attend if you are unwell
