Last Day to Collect Household Goods at the Church
Summer Household Goods Drive - We have begun collecting household goods (clothing, small furniture, books, CD’s and DVD’s, etc…). If you have things that you would like to donate please bring them to the church starting August 1st. We will be collecting from August 1st through the 25th, so if you feel it’s time to clean out a closet we would love whatever you can donate! Ask your neighbors, family members and anyone else that you know that might have things that they would be willing to donate to the church. This is a great way to help the church budget!! All items will be stored in the garage in the small trailer.

It’s hard to believe that a year has passed since I came to St. Andrew’s. I have met with many of you in small groups during this time and have heard bits and pieces of your stories. As we have journeyed together, I have had an amazing   experience. So what now? We are part of God’s living body in this world. Life and growth are to be hallmarks of our time together – not death, or stagnation. So, my vision for the coming year will focus on three things. First, that each of us will seek to find ways to be drawn closer to God. Whether that is through a deepening devotion, study, prayer, fellowship or service is determined by each one of us. Secondly, that as we fall in love with God all the more, it will be expressed in our being kinder and more compassionate with each other. Third, that through our joyful worship, fellowship, and service, our efforts will become more focused on those things that we have found truly matter. It is easy to be busy, but I would hope that as we continue to journey together and    occasionally look in the rearview mirror we will increasingly say, along with God, that we are delighted in our efforts.

Grace and Peace, Pastor Dan
