Knox Deacons starting a mask ministry. We invite anyone who is able to make masks to donate them to Knox so that we can share them with those in the Knox community who are having a difficult time getting one. We‘d also like to have more on hand in anticipation of us gathering again in person for worship. Please call or email Tricia Barlow at 513-236-5782 or if you have a need for a mask so we can make arrangements to get one to you or if you would like to make some to donate. Thank you from Knox Deacons Becky Gash, Marie Clyatt & Tricia Barlow.
“Pondering the Questions” online discussion group. This time of global pandemic has brought an unusual amount of uncertainty and upheaval into our lives, to say the least. A time like this presents us with an opportunity to reflect on our own lives and on the bigger picture of our place in the world. Pastor Adam gave us some really great questions to ponder in his sermon on April 26. If you'd like to consider these questions with others in our Knox community and reflect more deeply you are invited to be a part of a "Pondering the Questions" discussion group via Zoom on Thursdays 12:00pm-12:45pm. The group will be facilitated by Tina Hubert. This is casual gathering so feel free to "bring" your lunch! This group will meet FOUR times: on May 7, 14, 21 and 28. More information can be found here.
