KNOX PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH ANNOUNCEMENTS

In light of advice from Ontario’s Medical Officer of Health, we are encouraging everyone to please mask while indoors at Knox. During Coffee Hour after the service, you’re invited to take your refreshments to one of the tables and then remove your mask while seated. We are striving to create an environment where we can enjoy food and fellowship with one another while still honouring the latest medical advice.

With the cold weather on the way, Knox is beginning a Neighbours in Need initiative, collecting warm winter clothing along with financial donations to support those in our neighbourhood who might need some extra help. Coats, hats, mitts, and boots can be dropped off here at Knox and financial donations can be submitted to Knox with a note that it’s intended for “Neighbours in Need.”

Help choose the songs we sing at Knox! You’re invited to write down your hymn requests in the purple binder at the back of the sanctuary and our Worship Planning Committee will endeavour to include your suggestions in our coming worship services.

Communication  Rev. Heather sends out a weekly email with information about our upcoming worship services along with details about other activities taking place at Knox. If you are not on her email list, and would like to be, please contact Heather after the service or simply email your request to heatheratknoxpres@gmail.com

Knox Presbyterian Church follows the “Leading With Care” requirements of The Presbyterian Church in Canada, providing a safe and encouraging environment for children and vulnerable adults.

Donate Now  If you have visited the website recently you may have noticed a “Donate Now” feature allowing individuals to contribute to Knox electronically. We have partnered with Canada Helps to provide this service, for a small fee.  One more way to contribute to the ministry and mission at Knox!  Note–there is a small fee to the church for this service as Canada Helps will be processing the tax receipts for donations.

E-Transfers  You are now able to donate to Knox electronically.  If you are set up to bank online you are able to set up Knox as a “Payee” and e-transfer your donation using Knox’s email (knoxbb@muskoka.com).
