Special Events in the Month of March

Annual Financial Meeting: Plan to stay after worship on Sunday, March 4th for lunch served by the Youth Group, followed by St. Andrew’s Annual Financial Meeting. Copies of the financial report for 2011 are available on the entranceway table. There is no charge for the lunch, but donation baskets will be set out to receive your donations to support our youth to attend conferences and special events. Child care will be provided by some of our youth in the nursery during the meeting.

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 jars for us.  You can pick one up in the entranceway, and remember to bring it back on Easter Sunday. There are also some PWS&D envelopes in the entranceway if you would prefer to write a cheque.

During this year’s Lenten appeal, the Stewardship Committee has decided to highlight small business development in Guatemala.

  • $80 provides women with literacy and vocational training for one month.
  • $215 enables 40 people to participate in a business training program
  • $500 helps a women’s group start a small business fund

All Are Welcome To Take Part In A Session of prayerful and gentle exercise while sitting in a chair on Wednesday, March 7th from 6:30-7:30 pm in St. Andrew’s lower hall. Diane Waldbillig, a certified Holy Yoga trainer will be leading us through this new experience during the Lenten season. Let’s get healthy while we pray and reflect on scripture. Call Laura at 229-7846 to RSVP.

Discover Your God-Given Gifts! The Stewardship Committee invites everyone to participate in two small group sessions designed to help us discover and develop our spiritual gifts. Sessions will take place on Sundays, March 11th & 18th (2:30-4:30) and on Saturdays, March 17th & 24th (2:30-4:30) at the church. Please let us know whether you plan to attend the Sunday sessions or the Saturday sessions so that we can plan accordingly. You can phone the church (242-0525) email Rev. Amanda (email hidden; JavaScript is required) or put your name on the sign up sheets in the entranceway. We will conclude the program with a “gathering of God’s gifts” and a potluck lunch following worship on Sunday, March 25th.
