Clerk’s Corner Jan 15, 2022 For the Lord your God will be with you. He will neither fail you nor forsake you. Deut. 31:6b Well, here we are in the middle of January and it seems like the new year is much like the old. We are still dealing with COVID 19. Masks, vaccinations, sanitizing and restrictions are the order of the day. However, we know that God is there. We can go confidently into the future, continuing to be God’s hands and feet, serving him with love and humbleness.
I look forward to what the year has in store for us as a congregation. Session met on Jan 12, 2022. To bring the church into the future, we have begun the process of getting internet service into the church. So many exciting changes can happen with internet access. It will allow us to bring in music in a more expanded way, access Youtube videos for small group studies or large presentations, do Zoom services, and so much more. If anyone is interested in helping with this technology, we’d love to hear from you.
Session would like to extend “Many Thanks” to all the hands that put the Christmas Gift Bags together. This outreach ministry was very well received. Plans are underway to hand out Valentine’s Day bags. If you have an idea or would like to donate some items to include in the bag, you can speak with Catherine. This ministry will also be extended to young people away at university or college. If you know of anyone who would love to receive this gift, please let us know. This ministry is one way we can show God’s love to those who are unable to attend church right now, or just need to know that God’s love is always there.
The Annual General Meeting will be taking place in March. We are holding off until March, in hopes that the restrictions will be lifted by then, so we can celebrate the previous year’s achievements with a lunch. The AGM is an important way to acknowledge the many happenings in the Life of the Church. Many people in the congregation work faithfully and tirelessly to keep things going. In celebrating the year that was, we thank them for their work. I would like to urge others to consider how they could take part in the life of their church.
We all have gifts to share, or can learn a new skill. As we go into 2022, let’s do so with the knowledge that God is with us. He has a plan and it is up to us to hear his plan and act on it. May the new year be the year we take on the task of fulfilling God’s plan at Knox.
