Wisdom for Living: Summer Sunday School

continues

 

This summer we are offering a ten-week, intergenerational Sunday School experience at 9:00 AM in the Fellowship Hall. “Wisdom for Living” will explore the Biblical concept of wisdom, mining the Book of Proverbs for practical instruction for faithful growth.

 

We will engage issues we deal with every day: getting along with others, speaking truthfully, dealing with money, raising children (and dealing with parents!). Each week will offer a stand-alone lesson, so come whenever you can.

 

We plan for this series to be fun, to build community among us, and to help each of us to grow in Christian faith. Children through K5 will have a separate program downstairs; all others are invited to join us in the Fellowship Hall each Sunday.

We had a fantastic week at Camp Firelight VBS. Thank you to everyone who made it such a great success!

“When I’m afraid, I put my trust in you.” Psalm 56: 3

Thank You John Knox

 

As part of our Vacation Bible School this year, our 4th and 5th graders built a “Little Free Pantry” that will be installed on the grounds of John Knox. It will be used to house non-perishable food items and personal care items for those in need. It will be accessible 24 hours a day, stocked by anyone who feels led to donate. The free pantry will be located be on Shannon Drive, on the upper corner of our property, near the entrance to our upper parking lot.

 

The mini pantry movement activates neighbor engagement with food insecurity. The mini pantry serves an immediate and local need. Whether a need for food or a need to give,

mini pantries help feed neighbors, nourishing neighborhoods.

 

We asked our VBS children and our congregation to donate food and personal care items to help stock the pantry. We were able to secure over 550 items for our pantry! We are overwhelmed with gratitude! Thank you so much for helping us show our children that we can do small things that help in a BIG way. Our Neighborhood Blessing Box will definitely be a blessing to many!  

Wanting to get involved in Side By Side Respite, but limited by schedules? We get it! How about helping us out with a lunch or dessert one day this summer? Feel free to drop it off and run, or join us for lunch one day. See the Sign-up below to reserve a date!

Sign up to bring lunch or dessert!
In this season of concern, the Church’s witness of service and caring is more important than ever. John Knox is doing all we can to continue our ministry in ways that keep us connected to God and to each other. Please continue your offerings so that we can serve fully throughout this time of need.
