Dear Friends, We kicked off the year with our Parish Picnic and Ministry Fair on September 10th with a bang! It was a wonderful day of fellowship despite the rainy weather and having the picnic indoors. I want to thank everyone who helped out, whether you helped with set-up or clean-up or brought food, I was so appreciative of the generosity of the potluck. Everything was delicious! Thank you.
While it is always fun to see and taste the different recipes that you all have to offer, this month I’m doing something different for us. We are having our first Fellowship Dinner for adults with a fully catered meal and wine generously donated by Geoff McConnell in the Upper Hall on Sunday, October 22nd from 5-8 pm. Beer and non-alcoholic beverages will also be served. Geoff and Pam enjoy traveling to the Finger Lakes and they will be bringing back some choice wines from this region. Geoff and I will be working together to create a nice menu that compliments the wine and reflects the harvest season. Come and relax and enjoy an evening out without any effort. This is a perfect opportunity to introduce some friends to St. Andrew’s in an easy and casual environment. All are welcome! We are just asking for $30 per person to cover the cost of the 3-4 course meal. Babysitting will be provided - donation optional.
The goal of the dinner is to take time to get to know one another better, to meet new friends and to have fun. The fruits of Fellowship encourage care, support and love for one another as the Body of Christ. Serving each other is one of the greatest gifts we can give. I always find it interesting and providential to see who attends St. Andrew’s. We are a small community, but are intertwined in many different ways - through community, school and work. If you are new or seeking a Christian community this is a great time to find out who we are and get to know us better over some great food and wine!
You can sign-up and pre-pay for the dinner soon! Look for an invitation and link to sign-up in the announcements coming up, sign-up at church outside the Upper Hall or contact
