We are searching for young artists
Spring is around the corner! Knox Presbyterian Church is excited to have a practicum student work on an art project that focuses on what children/youths mental health has looked like over the last two years. The goal is to get kids/youths to send in a piece of artwork in any medium to be displayed in the church for an art showcase (date TBD).
It can be any form of artistic presentation (digital art, drawing/painting, poetry, collages, etc). A short description of the artwork that is created would be appreciated as well. The deadline is March 31st to submit your artwork.

Join the Stardale Women's Group
Through the Mission and Justice Committee we are planning an event for March 19th at 2pm. We will be hosting the Stardale Women’s Group. https://www.stardale.org who are committed to empowering indigenous girls and their families.
With some of their youth, they have created two short films: The first is called The Road, is about the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. The proposed format of the event is: Introductions/welcome, prayer and smudge by an Indigenous Elder, information about Stardale, viewing of the film (10-12 minutes), Q & A with the actors, and director, Possibility of some drumming depending on the girls present. Please call the Knox Office (403-242-1808) to let us know you plan to attend. We are encouraging other Presbyterian Churches to host a similar event, for which funds have been provided. Based on the success of this event, we hope to present the second film, Shadows in Time, as a follow-up (Date TBA).
This will be an opportunity to watch the film, then spend time with the actors and producers. They come with an Elder and some of the girls. It is also an opportunity for relationship building and increasing awareness of the issues facing women and girls in the Indigenous community. It will be an in-person event, keeping Covid protocols for distancing. As for Sundays, masks are recommended but not required. We hope that the girls will provide drumming and singing.
