Rector's Warden's Report

Hello St. Andrew’s Community,

November was a bustling month here at St. Andrew’s with a fine balance of worship, fellowship, outreach, and more. Our church wide financial review (family meeting) was a wonderful time to review highlights from the year, and our financial trajectory and needs as we close 2023 and head into 2024. If you weren’t able to make the meeting I encourage you to watch the recorded video that Reverend Ben sent out. Exciting times!

Lastly, thank you for your 2024 pledge on St. Andrew’s Day of Joyful Giving. If you haven’t submitted your pledge, please don’t delay. Your financial support is crucial to sustain the course that has been set, and I’m thankful for your generous commitment to our future.
