The Knox Mission Statement To share Christ with Others is taken seriously and literally by our congregation. We support the following local, national, and international missions and charities with prayer, volunteer hours, monetary donations, and gifts. In addition to these identified missions, the congregation will also rise up and offer support where it might arise, such as the 2021 hurricane that swept through Haiti.

National Missions

As a member of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, Knox supports Canadian Mission work through the National Church. Presbyterians Sharing. Presbyterians Sharing is the national church fund that supports mission and ministry in Canada and around the world. Presbyterians share in a wide range of ministries.
