The Session of John Knox Presbyterian church is calling a congregational meeting on Sunday, August 26 at 9:30 AM (between services) for the sole purpose of electing members to the PNC. Only official members of John Knox Presbyterian are allowed to vote but all are welcome to attend. The candidates are: Randi Allred, Teresa Dunn, Bonnie Heutink, Tom LePenske, Roger Morton, Glenn Nordman and Torque Zubeck. Biographical information of the candidates slated to serve on the PNC is available at the Welcome Center, church office, and on Realm.

SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE

Highline High School has hundreds of English Language Learner (ELL) students from all over the world. John Knox has volunteered to help support these students and their teachers by providing them with some basic supplies to start the new school year.

You will need to RSVP to the event posted on Realm in order to select an "item to bring" to fulfill a request. If you have any questions about the requests please contact at Nanci Leonard or Brad Lentz. Look for drop off boxes in the Narthex. A list of supplies will also be posted there. We will be collecting supplies until Sunday, September 2nd. Thank you for your support!

BELIZE MISSION REPORT

WORD OF WITNESS AND INVITATION TO LEARN MORE

This Sunday, the Senior High Belize Mission Team will be sharing a Work of Witness during the services. Directly after 2nd service, the congregation is invited to join the team in the Youth Center for a more in-depth look at the trip and its impact. Students will share stories, photos, prayers and snacks. Contact Josh Wainscott with any questions.
