Greetings St. Andrew's! It was wonderful seeing so many of you during Holy Week and Easter. Such a special time to be connected as a community and celebrate our faith in the risen Lord.
I’ll continue to use my section in the Piper to provide a summary on the state of the church which will be categorized as Highlights, Opportunities, Dependencies, and Challenges. My goal is to provide an informative place where you can review some of the “business” of the church in a summarized form. Many of these bullets can be looked at in more detail under the specific ministry reports within the Piper or addressed directly with the Vestry or ministry leaders responsible for them; however, if anything needs clarity you are welcome to reach out to Rev. Ben or myself.
