All are welcome to join us at Knox for another series of Adult Education seminars.   This Spring, we are very pleased to welcome Janiese Karpa lead a Spring Bible Seminar for three consecutive Wednesday evenings on the theme, THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD: How to Read it for all it's Worth. 

God has worked through the messiness of humanity to inspire a book that guides our faith.  The Bible is not a flat book of prescriptions, nor a simple guide to life, but a rich engagement with the sinful creatures who will one day, amazingly, look like God.

  • Can the Bible be trusted?
  • How did it come together?
  • Is the Old Testament still important?
  • How do we read it for all its worth?
  • What’s our place in the story?                                                                                                                                     

Join us as we explore these questions and encounter the One to whom it all points. 

  • Wednesday evenings in the Knox Church Parlour
  • April 24th, May 1st and May 8th, from 7:30 to 9 PM.  Doors open 6:30
  • Enter through the Garden Courtyard Doors off Elgin Street
