Knox Waterloo invites you to engage in a radically different kind of Lenten journey this year. Our theme for this year, Full to the Brim, is an invitation into a full life, to be authentically who you are, to counter scarcity and injustice at every turn, to pour out even more grace wherever it is needed. When we allow ourselves to be filled to the brim with God’s lavish love, that love spills over. It reaches beyond ourselves; like water, it rushes and flows, touching everything in its path.
Fourth Sunday in Lent & Music Scholar Sunday
Theme: Prodigal Grace
Sunday, March 20th at 10 am
The word “prodigal” is commonly used to describe the son who squanders his inheritance. Yet, this parable invites us to consider how God’s grace is also prodigal — extravagant, lavish, illogical. This parable disrupts and expands our definitions of grace. This parable invites us to consider how we might receive and extend prodigal grace?

Join us as we celebrate Music Scholar Sunday. All five of our talented scholars will be in-person sharing their gifts in worship. The Music Scholar program is a long-running tradition at Knox that is vital to the Knox Music Ministry. We welcome dedicated offerings on this day to the Music Scholar Fund.

PWS&D has launched an appeal to provide support for those facing humanitarian crisis following the invasion of Ukraine. You can read more at WeRespond.ca/Ukraine-Crisis.
ACT Alliance (a global faith-based coalition of which PWS&D is a member) has already begun setting up refugee support points and sending relief supplies to Ukraine. Canadian Foodgrains Bank members are also planning a response with urgently needed food assistance.
