Announcements

·       We are upstairs for services again!!!

·       Knox Last weekend of August  – Rock ‘n’ Roll Car Show, August 26th; we are doing the barbecue again, and will need people to help cook and serve – please talk to Dennis if you’re able to help out. We are also preparing a meal for Evangel Hall, to be served on Sunday, the 28 in the evening. We are going to be cooking about 80 pounds of meatloaf and 80 pounds of potatoes, so we will need some potato peelers at the church on Saturday, as well as some folks willing to cook a meatloaf in their oven at home on Saturday afternoon!

·       Farewell - The Knox family is saddened to learn that Lynda Strathdee has moved to Strathroy, Ontario, to be closer to family (her son, Philip, moved there with his family a couple of years ago).  This happened VERY rapidly, and as you read this, she has already departed!  Lynda has been a member of Knox for many years, and was elected as an Elder in 1991, taking over as our Roll Clerk in 1992.  She has a tremendously large heart for friendship and fellowship and was a linchpin that kept many of us connected, and she will be tremendously missed by everyone in the Knox family!  Her new address will be made available soon.  At an appropriate time, this Fall, we will give her an appropriate farewell during worship and Coffee Hour.  

·       Return To Old Ways - Starting on September 11th, Knox's Session has resolved that we will be returning to certain "old ways" in worship, including hand-out bulletins and congregational readers for announcements / responsive psalms.  If you are willing to take on one of these roles and be put on a rotation list, please speak to Rev. Steve or to Charles.

·       Prayers for this Week

o  People who are persecuted for their beliefs and their values, to the point of losing their jobs, careers, and even their lives, as they attempt to pursue honesty, truth, and justice
o   Those who are quick and sharp with their words when some calm and gentle words would perhaps be more effective
o   Those who are struggling because they are receiving no rain, as well as those who are struggling because they are receiving too much
o   People who are dealing with old wounds and old scars, with attempts and apologies and attempts at forgiveness.
