Bingo: We are looking for people to volunteer at our Bingo sessions. We are scheduled alternate Saturday evenings 6:30-9:00 p.m. Requirements are few…helps to have a loud voice as we are required to call back winning bingos and good mobility is an asset in order to get to the bingo winner quickly; also, we are on our feet most of the 2½ hours. Since we began sponsoring bingo we have raised over $176,000!! We are required by the OLG to share half of our earnings with other charities of our choice, and the 50% we keep has been used for special projects and general expenses at the church. If you feel you are able and willing to donate some of your time to this on-going fundraiser, please contact either Donna or Brian MacKay. Thanks for your consideration.
Taste Of Tartan: Donation sign up sheets are in the auditorium for fruit pies and other food items. Your donations are greatly appreciated!
Facebook Launch: We have launched our NEW Facebook. It is EXTREMELY important that you like our page and follow it. To kick things off, will be a Music Monday. Each week a new sample of contemporary Christian music will be available to listen to on our Facebook Page. Then there will be a Wacky Wednesday feature. Ask the Minister anything you would like to. Those questions which are suitable for a Facebook posting will be answered each Wednesday. On Saturdays a Worship teaser will be posted to prep you for worship on Sunday. Your feedback is important and we look forward to growing and expanding our Facebook Page to meet your needs and the needs of our community.
Membership/Envelopes: Regularly we welcome new folks to the fold of Knox Preston. If you are new and wish to become a registered member of our congregation and /or receive envelopes to use for your regular weekly donations and receive tax receipts, please notify our Membership Outreach Facilitator, Patricia Ritchie-Hutchison.
