WELCOME TO KNOX PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IN MANOTICK!
We are a church family that enjoys joyful worship in a warm and friendly atmosphere. We believe that God’s saving grace, given through Jesus Christ is offered to all, and that we are called to share God’s saving love within our immediate, local and global communities. If you are looking for a church home, please feel welcome to join us.
I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”
Office Hours: Wednesday 8:00am-10:00am, Thursday 9:00am-3:00pm, Friday 9:00am-1:00pm. Be sure to call ahead, to 613-692-4228 just to ensure that someone is in the church when you visit.
A PUBLIC COMMITMENT:
If you love the Lord Jesus Christ and are committed to Him and His Church, come and declare it before others. Our Lord has taught us that “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in Heaven” (Matthew 10:32). We invite all who are interested in professing their commitment through baptism, an affirmation of faith or membership in Knox, to speak to Rev Phil Kim at email@example.com or 613-402-4228.
Our worship services are Sunday mornings at 10 am. Nursery care is provided for children up to, and including 3 years of age. There is church school for children in kindergarten and up to and including grade 5. The youth, grades 6 – 12, also meet during the service to study the Bible. Most Sundays, following the worship service, we enjoy fellowship in the church hall.
Sunday Morning Care Group – We don’t just do Bible study and prayer, we CARE for each other. If you would like to join our group, we meet on Sundays at 9 am in the Youth Room starting this Sunday. The group is led by Derrek Konrad and they are currently studying the Gospel of Mark with a study book from Mark MacArthur. For more information, please call Derrek at 613-822-9846.
BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE:
Building for the Future – at Knox we want to look ahead and move forward to continue God’s work. The Elders at Knox would like to encourage the congregation to join with the leaders to focus on two goals for 2019:
1. To continue to work on the vision of Knox.
2. To work on the Accessibility Project by the raising of funds.
Making the Gospel Accessible to All
On Sunday 22 September 2019 following the morning service, we celebrated the start of our accessibility project with a sod turning ceremony. The addition will include a lift providing access to the sanctuary and lower levels, a new ground level entrance, a large, open congregational space, a classroom/multi-use room and an enlarged accessible washroom. The construction is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2020. Efforts have been made to ensure that the church remains open for services and meetings throughout the week.

Christmas Gift Baskets – It’s time to plan our Christmas gift baskets for the four struggling families that have been assigned to our church. These families are regular clients of the Manotick Outreach Food Cupboard. If you would like to donate a non-perishable food or a gift item for these baskets, please pick up an item tag(s) from the baskets on the table in the Narthex. The brown basket tags are for food items and the red basket tags are for gift items. Please bring your items to Knox any time up to December 15. There will be a collection box in the choir room.
