As businesses are gradually being given the green light to open, our church board along with Rev Richard are looking at what reopening might look like for Knox and our renters. As with so many churches today the answer to when or if we reopen: “It depends, and it will change.”
Thank you to so many of you for completing the Survey sent out to the entire congregation regarding reopening and your comfort levels around what those acitivities and a new normal may look like. And thanks also to the record number of you who participated in the Zoom Town Hall Meeting on the same topic. As you may have heard the vast majority of the congreagtion is not ready to come back quite yet.
If you would like to make further comments – they are most welcome – you can use the CONTACT US button on every page of this website.
We will continue to talk and ponder and pray around plans.
The photo for this post is the Wordoole that resulted from all our repsonses to the Survey. The larger font words are the ones that were used most frequently in the the Survey reponses.

Take heart…….. Who would have thought even a few months ago that so many would move to online worship and giving, many services attracting more people online than formerly in the pews? We are caring for one another, feeling vulnerable and strong at the same time. God’s mission always finds a way to spring forth in a crisis.
