“I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”  John 13:34-35

 

As we get ready for September, it is good to think back on the events we have been part of this summer. We give thanks for times when we have gathered with family and friends. We think of places we have been where we have found refreshment. We can reflect on the goodness of being outdoors going for a walk, weeding the garden, playing with children, or barbecuing.

 

What is a highlight for you this summer? And likewise, what has been a challenge for you? One of the gifts of being part of a church is that we get to share our times of rejoicing and our times of sorrow together. We support one another. We also encourage each other to be part of God’s love coming into the world. We do this by following the example of Jesus.

 

As the people of Knox Presbyterian Church, we are grateful to be Jesus’ disciples. We invite you to join us for worship. On August 31st, we have our final Summer worship time at 10:30 AM. We will be reflecting on Jesus’ question: “Who do you say that I am?” You are welcome to get ready for service by reading Matthew 16:13-28. Together, we will consider how we can help our loved ones to be their best, and to be set free to find their own path in life.

 

Starting Sunday, September 7th until the end of June, we have worship at 11 AM. On September 7th, Sunday School and Nursery will be shared. We are grateful to be an intergenerational church. Everyone is welcome! This website shares opportunities for outreach like the Alley Thrift Store and Cancer Care Mission/Wig Room. We are glad to be part of the ministry of the Presbyterian Church in Canada.

 

Let us be part of Jesus’ new commandment as we support one another day by day.

 

Blessings
