Rally Sunday – Sept 11

Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 5.56.02 PMBelieve it or not – summer will shortly be coming to an end.     School is about to start. and so is Sunday School.

Rally Sunday is September 11.  We will have a craft time for the kids as we once again look forward to sharing God’s Love and Goodness to us with your child. Immediately after the service there will be a fellowship time with hot dogs and corn on the cob.

I hope your children can join with us. Friends welcome!

Father’s Day highlights

Men’s Chorus singing Sweet Hour of Prayer

What a dynamite service. Under the leadership of Glen Findlay, so many elements of this services were one-of-a-kind delightful.

Prelude music offered by the Kerr family set the bar high for the service.

The opening anthem took the form of a special offering for Father’s Day by the Men’s Chorus. Click HERE for an audio clip of their piece, Sweet Hour of Prayer. As I said to others, this piece of music gave me chills, it was so good. Judge for yourself 🙂

Artist award recipients Neil McKenzie-Sutter & Susannah McKenzie-Sutter with Marjorie Britton

It was nice to support see two more young people supported through Knox’s Artist Assistance Awards. One recipient, Susannah McKenzie-Sutter, showed some of her skills on violin during the service – a real treat.

I quite enjoyed Glen’s mediation. He lobbed a few references out that that gave me a chuckle, such as Isaac was a joke of a father. He noted that in the Prodigal Son, one brother over-indulged in self-satisfaction, and the other in self-righteousness. Great stuff.

Here Father’s Day is family, with a tip of the hat to dear old dad. <3 <3 <3

A joy to experience 🙂

Thank you choirs! Thanks also to Pat & Christine Kerr who led the young singers through their inaugural and thoroughly appreciated first season. Clip below. Enjoy!
