As a measure to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Leadership Council of National Capital Presbytery strongly recommends that churches not hold worship services for the next 2 Sundays. They have also recommended that Sessions not meet in person.

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.
Join Knox Church to celebrate and remember all that has transpired in the past year. Music, mission, neighbors, kids, and worshiping our Lord! The Annual Report will be presented at the close of the worship service, and will be followed by a pot-luck meal. All are welcome.
Please come to the Knox Church community Christmas dinner at 6:00 p.m. on Wed., Dec. 12. Turkey, ham, gravy and rolls will be provided. If you are able, please bring one or more side dishes – stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn or green beans, or a dessert (Christmas cookies are welcome). We hope that many of our neighbors near the church will attend. If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
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. Advent is a time when we joyfully expect how Christ enters the space and the greens symbolize how His love for us never changes, even in this winter time. Join us for this time of preparation and joy for the season.
THE FUNERAL SERVICE for Jim Lecky will be Tuesday, August 14 at 1 pm at Knox, with the graveside service at National Memorial Park to follow immediately.

An informal prayer and praise service will be held at Murphy’s at 7:45 p.m.
Sunday, May 20, we celebrate Pentecost, with a dramatic reading from Acts 2, the choir sings “Whom Shall I Fear”, we blow bubbles outside as a symbol of the Spirit wind, and we’ll be preparing CWS Hygiene Kits for disaster areas around the world. We still need hand towels (15″ X 28 to 16″X32″, no microfiber or dishcloths), standard size band aids, toe or finger nail clippers, bath-size bars of soap in wrappers and wide-tooth combs.
