Rector's Warden's Report
Greetings St. Andrew's,
I must say, November was quite an active month at the church. What stands out the most for me was Reverend Ben’s Installation, which was an incredibly special evening officiated by our Bishop, Daniel Gutiérrez. Thank you to so many that were involved to support the festivities, there were so many of you involved and it was very much appreciated.
We concluded our Essential Question Program for Adult Christian Formation. It was a pleasure joining many of you as we journeyed through the book of Acts.
Lastly, thank you for your 2023 pledge on St. Andrew's Sunday. If you haven’t submitted your pledge, please don’t delay. We have accomplished so much during 2022 to build a solid foundation for ministry and put us in a strong trajectory to be the church we’ve been praying for. Your financial support is crucial to sustain the course that has been set, and I’m thankful for your generous commitment to our future.
