Hello St. Andrew's!
April was quite a month for us, with lots of wonderful opportunities for worship and activity. When I think back on Holy Week, Pizza Bingo, our guest speaker event, meetings, coffee hours, etc., the most vivid pictures that come to mind are the warm smiles and connections that come with all that from so many of you. Our little church is a wonderful sanctuary from the chaos that can creep up on us in day-to-day life, to which I’m very thankful.
I was asked a great question from one of our newcomers at one of the Easter services. The question was, “How would you describe St. Andrew's in a word or two?” What a great question! From what I recall, I gave him this: Friendly and Warm, Unassuming/Modest, Spirit Filled. Honestly, I could go on, but it really made me think of who we are in the community and the wonderful place of worship we offer in the most simplest of terms. If you were asked that question, what would you say?
