I hope that you have all had a wonderful summer, and that you’re getting ready for a Fall Season filled with faith and fun at St. Andrew’s. This Sunday September 9th many things are starting up again, so if you have been travelling I hope you’ll make it back to join us for worship at 11 am.
Worship on Sunday, September 9th will be a family-friendly service (without a long, boring sermon)!
The Christian Education Committee will be introducing a Library Reading Challenge. Just for fun we’re going to have a competition between the two sides of the church (based on where you usually sit on Sundays) – the Pulpit Pupils and the Lectern Learners! We’ll see who can read the most Bible books and books from our church library by Sunday, October 21st when we’ll finish up with a Bible Jeopardy Challenge and Pot Luck Supper at 4 pm. We’ll have a lot of fun and do some reading and learning too!
After church this Sunday, we’ll have a Church School Teacher orientation. This session is for both new and returning teachers, and Matt is still looking for a few more teachers and teaching assistants, so talk to him for more details or just join us at the orientation if you’re interested in serving in this way.
Sunday Morning Bible Study for adults will resume on Sunday, September 16th. Everyone is welcome to join us for bible study, whether you can attend every week or only occasionally. Use the parking lot side door, and stop by the kitchen for coffee before joining the group in the parlour at 9:30 am. Topics for September and October will be based on the Sunday lectionary readings.
Church School classes will begin again on Sunday, September 16th following the children’s message in church. The classes are for children age 3 – grade 1, grades 2-4, and grades 5-8.
The Youth Group will have their first meeting of the Fall Season on Sunday, September 16th at 7 pm. All youth from grade 7 -12 are invited. Speak to Matt Pelerine for more details.
