United Church Marriage Preparation Course

This course is offered on behalf of the United Church of Canada, Chinook Winds Region. All couples planning to get married are welcome, whether you are getting married at Knox Church, a different church, or no church at all.

When you plan to get married there are things you need to know. Things about yourself. Things about your partner. Things about you as a couple. Each of us sees the world in a slightly, or possibly not so slightly, different way. Maybe because of our culture. Maybe because of our religion. Maybe for one of a million other reasons. No matter what the reason, when you are planning on spending your life with someone, it’s good to take a closer look at some fundamentals.

Each workshop is lead by a married couple who are professional counsellors specializing in relationships.

Knox Church AGM

Annual Congregational Meeting

Knox’s Annual Congregational meeting will be held on Sunday, March 24 beginning at 10:30 am.  We will be framing the meeting with worship, and conducting the meeting as worship, to remind us that our congregational business is a part of our mission and community life, and that our meetings are also places in which we are called to discern the call and Spirit of God.  We’ll begin in the manner of our traditional worship and end in the manner of PAX. 

Lunch will be provided.

Among other items of business, we will be assessing our progress towards the Next 1100 Days vision, laying out our plans for the coming year, and approving the budget that will enable those plans to go forward.  This is the meeting that will shape our life together for the coming year.  Please come to worship, to discern God’s call, and to recommit to our walk of faith together.
