November 11th, 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, ending the First World War. As a congregation with a rich and deep history of service both overseas and caring for military men and women upon their return, Knox Church will recognize this in two ways.
On November 4th at 12:30 PM (following our 11 AM worship service) in Geneva Hall, we introduce a new book about the Knox members who died during World War 1. Going Down of the Sun, was written by current Knox member, Dr. Phil Winkelaar, and as the subtitle implies, the book includes insightful and poignant biographies of Knox Church members who 'went to war and did not return.' The author will read selections and be available to sign copies available for purchase. To get to Geneva Hall, enter through the Garden Courtyard Doors (227 Elgin Street).
On November 11th at 11:00 AM, we will hold our Annual Remembrance Day worship service. Ceremonies the same day and time at the National War Memorial will likely make getting to Knox challenging, and parking availability may be at a premium, so we encourage you to plan ahead and arrive as early as possible. Worship on November 11th, will also begin with a prelude and processional before the top of the hour, so that our Time of Silence coincides with all other civic ceremonies at 11 00 hours.
