The ladies of Knox do a lot of different functions in our congregation. During the year we have three potluck luncheons, with meetings if needed and sometimes entertainment. We make pies every month, except Dec, July and August, that are for sale. In Dec we do our cookie boxes with over 3 dozen small, delectable eatables, just in time for Christmas, these are also for sale. We do catering for our own congregation and donate monies to various organizations, including our own church. We enjoy a great camaraderie amongst us all!

We give plants to some members at Easter and Christmas. We help families in need at Christmas with money or gifts. Our annual caroling night is very popular as about 25 of us sing to members at their homes and also Retirement and Nursing homes. Coffee hour is an important part of our Church Life and we make sure it is signed up for each week. We depend on the congregation to let us know of situations where we could be doing these things or more.
