Baby Layettes For Knox Healthy Start Program 

Once again the Morning Glories and the Faith Book Club Chapter 1 are collecting items to make baby layettes for the participants of the Knox Healthy Start For Mom & Me Program. This program provides information, support, resources and advocacy for immigrant and refugee women who are pregnant or have children under one year of age. We welcome all contributions to help make this project a success and items can be placed in a box located in the narthex during the month of February.

If you have any questions please call Susan Care at 204-253-4385 or email scare@mymts.net.

Mark Your Calendars!

This Lenten season, Pastor Chris and Deacon Kris will be leading a one hour adult discussion group based on the video series “NOOMA” by Rob Bell. NOOMA is a series of short films promoting spiritual reflections on individual life experiences. The name NOOMA comes from a phonetic spelling of the Greek word meaning “wind”, “spirit”, or “breath”. We invite you to join us Thursdays at 7:30 throughout Lent (5 sessions, March 9th – April 6th).

“Worship and Music Committee would like the congregation to know it is in an ongoing process of evaluating all aspects of our sound system.  We appreciate your patience.”
