This Week at St. Andrew’s

Canada Youth Sunday, November 4th:
Worship this Sunday will be led by Matt Pelerine and some of the youth and young adults who attended Canada Youth 2012 this past summer. Come and hear the reflections of our youth on the transformative experience of attending a Presbyterian conference for youth.

Flute Music From Around The World:
Brenda Moats will present a concert with Gillian Lyons at St. Andrew’s at 7:30 pm on Sunday, November 4th. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students/seniors. Thanks to Brenda who recently shared her musical gifts during worship at St. Andrew’s on October 29th. This concert is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a whole evening of beautiful music with Brenda and Gillian.

The Youth Group Will Be Selling 2013 Calendars from the Presbyterian Church in Canada on Sundays during coffee hour in the lower hall. Each one costs only $3.50 and the profit goes towards our fund for Canada Youth 2014. Note: Calendars make great Christmas presents!

Want To Join The Choir For Christmas?

We have already started to practice the Christmas music, but it’s not too late to join us for practices starting on Thursday, November 8th at 7:00 pm, and continuing on Thursday evenings until the Festival of Lessons and Carols on Sunday, December 16th at 7:30 pm.

Launching The “Feed My Sheep” Project:
The Hildur Hermanson Women’s Missionary Society at St. Andrew’s is supporting Saskatoon Native Circle Ministry by sharing in the program “Feed My Sheep”. At the October Synod meeting, we invited all the Presbyterian churches in Saskatchewan to join us in this project. We now take this opportunity to encourage our community of faith here at St. Andrew’s to join us.

Donations can be made through your Sunday offering and you will receive a charitable receipt of the end at the year.  When you make a donation of $10, a paper lamb with your name on it will be posted on a display board in the church. A $25 donation will put a paper sheep on the board. Please indicate on your envelope that your donation is for “Feed My Sheep”.

The “Feed My Sheep” program will continue through 2013 to help provide food and comfort to all people who gather at the Saskatoon Native Circle Ministry.
