My hope is that you are having a good week! Of course I know that not all of us are – and so I am glad that you have found your way to share with us in worship this day. Perhaps, today you will find a way to experience joy in the midst of everything that is happening in your life. If you would like to have a pastoral visit – by phone, zoom or in person please give me a call or an e-mail.
Sunday Worship: Please use this link for today’s worship.
Third Advent Room opened (click here)!
I have selected 2 renditions of the hymn Joy to the World – one a traditional one … and the other a contemporary interpretation that I believe is appropriate for the changing world in which we live. (I’ve added it to my Christmas play list)
Presbyterian World Service and Development (PWS&D)
I have attached a link to PWS&D, the mission agency of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. The advent liturgies that we use during worship have been prepared by this agency – and provide for us a way to reflect on the needs of our world as well as a way to respond. https://presbyterian.ca/pwsd/
Please consider a donation to PWS&D by indicating for missions as part of your offering.
Christmas Eve Service
Knox 16 will host 3 services of worship on Christmas Eve: 4:00, 7:00, 10:00. Attendance at worship will be by invitation only – to ensure that people are kept as safe as possible and that we are following strict Covid-19 protocols. If you wish to make a reservation, prior to the spaces being open to the wider public, please respond by Monday, December 14th (the congregation has been given the past two weeks to respond – and many have done so). Please contact Rev. Gushue or Brenda if you have questions or require additional information.
A special word of thanks for all those who donated poinsettias for the sanctuary. They are beautiful!!
