The PCC in partnership with the United Church of Canada is offering a dynamic youth conference called UPLIFT July 3 – 7 at Brock University.

Plans are underway to celebrate Knox’s 150th anniversary next year. The Knox150 committee is hosting a logo contest with submissions being received until the end of May THIS year. The logo will appear on all of our advertising and shirts that will be available for sale.

Envelopes  The Board and Session made the decision to reduce the number of  Box Envelopes purchased for the 2024 year. Congregation members who had a number greater than 50 will notice a new #.  Congregation members who use the PAR Program or contribute by e transfer may not have been assigned a Envelope number but are welcome to use one of the visitor envelope if you wish to contribute to a fund raiser, just remember to include your name on the visitor envelope.  If you have OLD ENVELOPES hanging around, please-please-please, throw them out, your number may not be valid any longer.

A Message from the Mission Committee: We are looking for donations of plastic grocery bags and/or the larger plastic milk bags to help deliver our Emergency Food Boxes. Thanks.

The BUC-Knox Refugee Partnership is pleased to announce that the fundraising goal to sponsor the Janbali Family has been met! Thank you to everyone for your generosity and prayers. We continue to await an arrival date for the family, which could still be several months away.

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).
