DURING THE SEASON OF LENT each year, the people of St. Andrew’s are encouraged to collect coins to support the work of Presbyterian World Service and Development. Our gifts to PWS&D are one way that we care for people around the world and for God’s creation. The Stewardship Committee has provided coin-collecting containers for us. You can pick up either a box or a jar in the entranceway at St. Andrew’s, fill it with your spare change, and bring it back on Easter Sunday. There are also some PWS&D envelopes in the entranceway if you would prefer to write a cheque.
PANCAKE & SAUSAGE SUPPER (Tues. Feb. 16th) @ Calvin-Goforth Church (1602 Sommerfeld Ave). Share in the Shrove Tuesday tradition of eating pancakes on “Mardi Gras” before the season of Lent begins. Come for pancakes between 5 PM and 7 PM. A free will offering will be received to support Presbyterian World Service & Development.
ASH WEDNESDAY SUPPER & WORSHIP (Wed. Feb. 17th) @ St. Andrew’s Church. (Please use the parking lot side door.) We begin the season of Lent together with a simple supper in the lower hall at 6 PM, followed by worship upstairs at 6:45 PM. The worship will include Holy Communion and an opportunity to receive ashes on the forehead – a sign of humility and repentance.
