September was an enjoyable month at St. Andrew’s as we kicked off the regular program year. It’s been nice seeing people after summer vacations and activities. One thing to remember each Sunday is to wear your name tag during and after services. It’s super helpful for newcomers and those of us that have a hard time remembering names! The name tags are located in wooden holders to the right of the front doors as you enter the building. If you don’t have a name tag, contact Amanda Schlick at our office and she’ll gladly make you one.
Also, just wanted to give another reminder that we have introduced Online Giving Tokens that are available when you pick up your bulletin. If you give online, join in the physical act of blessing your gift by dropping a token in the plate during the Sunday services at the time of our offertory.
Below are our current Highlights, Opportunities, and Dependencies as a church. These are just high level bullet points and further information can be found within the individual ministry reports or by contacting a ministry leader.
Parish Picnic and Ministry Fair - wonderful time of fellowship, volunteer signups, and general sharing of what is going on at St. Andrew’s. Thank you for all of you who helped make that event a success!

Online Giving Tokens - if you give online, pick up a token with your bulletin and drop it in the offertory plate during the service.
