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.
