Hello St. Andrew’s, What a wonderful month we had together in October! Our highlights shown below weaved in fellowship and great ways to connect as a church family. Our Adult Dinner event was a sell out, maxing out our Upper Hall. A big thank you to Julia Sanders for leading/coordinating that wonderful time, Geoff McConnell for donating wine and providing the education on the selections, and all the help from volunteers.
And our 3rd Annual Chicken BBQ continues to be a favorite year over year, attracting BBQ lovers from all over. Thank you to Jeff Herrera for leading/coordinating that event, and to all the volunteers that came out despite the rain to make that a successful day. Lastly, a big thanks to our top BBQ ticket salesman (by a long shot), Geoff McConnell, for always being an anchor to drive the event’s fundraising efforts!
Upcoming this month, I especially encourage everyone to attend our upcoming Family Meeting and Financial Review on November 12th. This is an important gathering for our entire congregation to hear from Rev Ben on our future and vision as a church. Please join us!
