A Message to People  

Since the announcement of the discovery of the undocumented and unmarked remains of 215 children on the grounds of Kamloops Residential School, we have received many messages of sorrow, concern, and outrage from members of the church. We share these feelings.

We have also been asked many questions about the United Church’s intentions regarding burial sites and missing children, about the sharing of our residential schools records, and about our response to the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. 

Please go to https://united-church.ca/news/response-kamloops-residential-school-grave-discovery to read about these intentions and response.

Many biblical passages remind us of the importance of working together for peace and justice. We would like to take this opportunity to answer your questions so that together we can honour all those affected by the residential schools system, and live up to our obligations as a participant in it.

As we do this work, we often find ourselves reflecting on this passage from 2 Corinthians 5:18–19: “All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself…and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us.

With this trust comes the onus to first seek and speak the truth. At this time, we recommit to truth-telling, to education, and to taking action for those things for which we hold responsibility. May God be our helper.

Grace and Peace to You.

Need Assistance with Food?

Covid 19 has affected many of us in many ways. If you are experiencing food insecurity, and would like some assistance, please let us know. Our Pantry Outreach Group can be reached at  468-6923  M – F mornings. We recently received a generous, Covid specific, grant of $5,000 from the  Kenora Community Foundation. These monies are specifically to help alleviate some of the food insecurities many are facing during these unprecedented times. The funds must be spent within a year. No problem! I suspect the economic fallout will be with us for a while. Combined with the ongoing generosity of both Knox and community supporters, means we are here to help. You Are Not Alone!

 
 
 
 
 

 

Knox is a Affirming Congregation

At Knox United Church, we celebrate diversity. In God’s world we are diverse in gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, culture, age, physical ability, religious perspective, and economic status. Jesus met people wherever they were in their journey. Relationship changes us. Knox is an evolving community of faith that seeks to intentionally welcome new perspectives and leadership.
