Grandma’s Treasures sale.  Saturday December 7th from 9am to noon — start saving your treasures. Donations can be dropped off at the Knox Room, also the Ladies’ are looking for people to donate baking as well which can be brought into the church the day before.

PA Day VBC – PA days occur about five times throughout the school year and can sometimes be challenging for families to find care for their children. In response to this challenge, and to connect with our community, Knox will be hosting PA Day Vacation Bible Camp on October 25th and are now accepting student registration.  Contact the office at 705-645-4521 to register your child.

On Reformation Sunday (Oct. 27th)  we will honour the “saints” in our lives by singing songs in their memory. You are invited to choose a favourite hymn to honour someone who has influenced your faith. Complete the bulletin insert and place it in the offering plate or give it to Rev. Heather following our service. We will sing your selections during our service on Oct. 27th – and perhaps the following Sunday too!

Time to Evaluate  It has been 6 months since we moved the worship service from 9:30 am to 10 am.  We are looking for your feedback.  Let your elder, Heather or the office know your preference, should session consider keeping our worship service at 10 am or go back to 9:30 am.

Prayer Shawl Dedication  The knitters in the congregation have been very busy over the summer—wishing to say thank you to all those who donated yarn and those who have knitted the shawls.  As a congregation, we will be dedicating the next batch of shawls to go to the hospital on Sunday.
