Our Local Mission Partnerships
UPDATE FROM THE MISSION COMMITTEE
Bethlehem Place provides affordable, safe, transitional housing and a comprehensive support program for people who wish to make a change in their lives. Knox Church was one of the 2 original founders of this organization which opened in 1988. Our other Local mission is Hospice Niagara. Please be aware that in using The Local Mission envelope in your 2018 offering box, you will be supporting both Bethlehem Housing and Hospice Niagara.
Knox is involved with two St. Catharine’s initiatives:
BETHLEHEM PLACE Housing and Support Services provides affordable housing and support services to individuals and families in Niagara.
HOSPICE NIAGARA offers palliative care for those who are dying, a 10-bed residence for such, as well as bereavement care for those who grieve.
Out of the Cold
Out of the Cold is a program where 7 host churches in St. Catharines open their doors to the homeless and hungry people of St. Catharines. These churches provide a hot nourishing meal and overnight shelter to the less fortunate in our community. The program begins in November and is finished on April 31st. But if you want to still be involved we run a summer bbq twice a month starting in June. Contact us if you want to be involved. Our program starts this year on Friday, November 2nd.
