Hello St. Andrew's! I hope everyone had a wonderful summer. As we head toward the fourth quarter of 2022 there are many exciting things to look forward to. I encourage you to take the time to read through all the Piper announcements as there are many areas of opportunity and action within our ministry departments.
I’m most excited about our Sunday Kickoff on September 11th where many of our programs and activities will resume. It’s also a time of year where we need some helping hands - if you are ready to get involved, or would like more involvement, please ask how and we can point you in the right direction.
