At Knox, our Church School strives to bring the message of God's love and Christ's teachings to children and youth. We want children to discover, develop and rely on their relationship with God.
We offer classes for all children from Junior Kindergarten up to Grade 8. Children and leaders meet in the Sanctuary at Children's Time during Sunday morning worship. Church School at Knox endeavours to encourage all age groups on their faith journey.
PRESCHOOLERS are full of wonder and open to discovery. They also have a need for security. At Knox they can feel secure in the depth of God's love.
GRADE SCHOOL CHILDREN are beginning their self discovery. At Knox, we help them to work out their connections to others, to their world, and most importantly to God.
We are all Children of God. We are all part of the Knox Family. We all have gifts to share with each other... children with old members of our church family and in turn, older members with our children and youth.
All ages are welcome at Knox in worship, at Communion, celebrating Baptisms and in class rooms.
For more information about our Church School Programs please contact Karen Bellamy, Church School Coordinator.

MISSION OUTREACH PROJECT
This year we partnered with “Start2finish”, to stuff backpacks which will be distributed to families who might not otherwise be able to afford some of the necessary tools for their child’s success at school.
With your support and the support of our VBS families, we stuffed 41 backpacks! And also a box of extra supplies.
The Start2Finish Backpack Program provides vital school supplies to thousands of kids who begin the school year without the proper essentials. Each September, Start2Finish, in cooperation with school boards and local administrators, identifies children with the greatest needs in low-income communities across the nation. The program equips students with the tools needed to help “even the playing field” and prepare them for a successful school year and beyond. The S2F Backpack Program distributes backpacks to the most at-risk children in schools locally and nationwide.
Please consider donating "clean new socks." Knox Youth will be collecting socks throughout the summer months and will be donating them to Wyndham House and the Drop-in Centre in September.
Please place your sock donation in the bins provided in the Narthex and Metcalf Hall.
