Our thanks to the
Knox Presbyterian Church for allowing us to publish their book on
As we look back
over 150 years and try to record the history of this congregation,
we realize there are many gaps in our church’s story. Our records
are not complete, some have been lost, and some events were probably
never recorded or preserved. We have tried to accurately record the
materials that we had. We are grateful to those many people who have
contributed clippings, pictures, stories and memories. If you find
mistakes, please forgive us – we did our best! To those who have
helped in any way in putting this book together, we offer humble
thanks – you have made this possible.
This book is the story of people, from pioneer days to the present
time – people of faith who were dedicated, resourceful,
conscientious and grateful to God for His blessings. This book is
one of memories more than history. To name all who carried out the
work of Knox Church congregation during the 150 years would be
impossible. They and you have served by prayer and service, and by
faithful attendance at worship week by week, and are known to God.
To you who will continue in the years ahead as Christ’s disciples in
Knox Church, be assured that God is at work with you, renewing your
strength and upholding you with His love.
Hold high the torch;
you did not light its glow
Twas given you by other hands, you know.
I think it started down its pathway bright
The day the Master said, “Let there be light.”
And He once said, who hung on Calvary’s tree,
“You are the light of the word – Go shine for me.”
As this is a large
book we've made it available in 3 pdf files which are large due to
all the pictures and newspaper clippings contained within.
