We’ll be collecting school supplies for CWS school kits during the month of August. CWS distributes school kits to children in the U.S. and around the world so that they can continue to go to school after natural disasters. For a list of the supplies needed, see www.cwskits.org. School supplies are often on sale this time of year, so be sure to check your local ads for great deals on these needed items.

On Saturday, December 8, the men of Knox will host a breakfast at 8:00 am in the Fellowship Hall. Immediately following the meal, all are welcome to join in the Greening of the Church, or hanging of the greens, as a way to usher in the Advent season.

Join us for this time of preparation and joy for the season.
