Community Notes



Our Knox family  will be hosting a home-cooked meal for the dedicated (and tired!) staff from Camp Cairn, our Presbyterian church camp located near Baysville, on Wednesday July 31st at 6pm. We are the closest Presbyterian church to the camp so this is a wonderful way for us to express our thanks to the camp staff – and to provide them with something other than camp food! We will also be sending them back to camp with home-baked cookies. If you’d like to help out with the dinner, or provide home-made peanut-free cookies, please let Rev. Heather know.

It is located at 1094 Pine Needle Point, first road off of Walkers Point Road. Maps will be provided.  Access is reasonable. Few stairs.  Special request. No gifts please.

 Summer Sunday School program! We will have a special table set up at the back of the sanctuary with quiet activities for our children; however, on some Sundays, volunteers will be available to take our children to the Sunday School room. We welcome children in all aspects of our worship service and value their presence and participation. Nursery Duty — we will also be providing quiet activities for the youngest of the congregation during July and August to give our Nursery Duty Volunteers some rest and relaxation.

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 during the next school year. We invite you to let Rev. Heather know if you’d like to be part of this exciting new outreach ministry.

Don’t Forget  to remember the Manna Food Bank Baskets in the Narthex, Canadian Tire Money for the animal shelter an stamps for the Leprosy Mission.
