Worship for May 31 2020

alternatively go to and type into the search bar:  Knox United Winnipeg. 

The service will be on the YouTube site anytime you would like to view it.  Former online services are available here as well.

This Sunday is the celebration of Pentecost.

As we join together in worship we acknowledge that we live on Turtle island, land that creator brought out of the waters so all could have life. Turtle island is the traditional territory of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, and Dakota peoples, and the homeland of the Metis Nation.

Welcome and Announcement


Singing:     MV142 Oh A Song Must Rise

Oh a song must rise for the Spirit to descend

Oh a song must rise once again (again)

Singing out God’s praises and glory

the faithful voices blend

Oh a song must rise for the Spirit to descend (descend)

From the mountains to the valleys,

from the desert to the sea, a song must rise once again.

From the voices of our leaders, the voice of you and me,

a song must rise for the Spirit to descend

From poverty and riches, from the voice of young and old

a song must rise once again

From the free and the imprisoned, the timid and the bold

a song must rise for the Spirit to descend

From ev’ry house of worship, in ev’ry faith and tongue

a song must rise once again

From the villages and cities, a new song must be sung

a song must rise for the Spirit to descend.

Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy Name,

thy kingdom come,

thy will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those

who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

and the power, and the glory,

for ever and ever. Amen.

‘हे हाम्रा पिता, जो स्‍वर्गमा हुनुहुन्‍छ,

तपाईंको नाउँ पवित्र होस्‌।

तपाईंको राज्‍य आओस्‌। 

 तपाईंको इच्‍छा स्‍वर्गमा जस्‍तो छ,

त्‍यस्‍तै यस पृथ्‍वीमा पूरा होस्‌।

हामीलाई आज हाम्रो दैनिक भोजन दिनुहोस्‌।

हाम्रा अपराधहरू क्षमा गर्नुहोस्,

जसरी हामीले आफ्‍ना अपराधीहरूलाई क्षमा गरेका छौं।

हामीलाई परीक्षामा पर्न नदिनुहोस्,

तर दुष्‍टबाट छुटाउनुहोस्‌

किनभने राज्‍य, पराक्रम र महिमा

सदासर्वदा तपाईंकै हुन्, आमेन।’

Singing: MV26 Your Love is Amazing

Your love is amazing, steady and unchanging

Your love is a mountain, firm beneath my feet.

Your love is a mystery, how you gently lift me,

When I am surrounded your love carries me.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Your love makes me sing

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Your love makes me sing


Your love is surprising, I can feel it rising

All the joy that’s growing deep inside of me

Every time I see you all your goodness shines through

I can feel this God song rising up in me



The ministry and mission of Knox continues, even when the building is closed.  God’s love and concern for those who are struggling is shared.  You make it possible to carry this message to everyone.  If you normally give when you are in worship, we encourage you to continue your regular donations through Canada Helps.  The link is here: All donations made will be forwarded to Knox Winnipeg.  Or, if you have envelopes, you could put your offering in an envelope each Sunday and bring them with you when we get back to in person worship.  Thank you for your generosity in these times of trouble.
