June & July at St. Andrew’s

Family Profiles For St. Andrew’s 90th Anniversary: The 90th anniversary celebration will take place October 16-18, including special events on Friday evening and Saturday, a banquet on Saturday evening, and an anniversary worship service on Sunday morning. Our guest speaker will be the Rev. Dr. Nancy Cocks, Minister at St. John’s Presbyterian Church in Medicine Hat.

As part of the celebration, the Anniversary Committee is gathering family profiles. Families come in all shapes and sizes, and we all belong to the wider church family. Individuals, couples, families with children at home or grown… All are invited to share a family profile for our anniversary celebration. We hope that you will want to participate! Pick up a profile form from the entranceway table, and return it to the church office, preferably by the end of June.
