We need help sewing seafarers bags and medicine bags for Karen's medical mission to the Dominican Republic. There are also some small embroidery projects to be done for next year's Hope Circle holiday fair.
Please contact Kathy Stedman at 322-7139 if you can help. Projects may be picked up anytime at church, sewn at home and returned, so this is a good project for those not comfortable working in a group.
Now that fall is here, Ann take it a week at a time! Meet for yoga outside at St. Andrew at 5 pm for for peaceful stretching and meditation.

Our outdoor worship service with proper physical distancing and masks is held on Sundays at 9:30 - music begins at 9:20.
BYOC--BRING YOUR OWN CHAIR! There will also be the opportunity to remain in your car as you participate in worship. The service will still be live-streamed for those who don't yet feel comfortable coming out.
If the weather does not cooperate we will move inside and either way, the service will be live-streamed on Facebook ) as it has been so that all may have access.

Bryan is an awesome photographer and will take shots on the lawn with the woods as a colorful backdrop. You receive a flash drive will ALL the photos for $100. Proceeds support the St. Andrew Preschool!
Those interested in participating in communion at the conclusion of the service will pick up a communion cup and wafer as you arrive. We will each remain in our chairs at the end of the service rather than coming forward. Pastor will say the words of institution and we will take first the bread and then the grape juice together from our seats! Hopefully it will be simpler to get the wafer off the top and manage the grape juice, too!
There was some interest in outdoor, in-person communion visits. If you are interested in having a communion visitor, you may call the church office or email Cindy. We will do our best to accommodate those who wish to receive. I simply ask your patience as there is training to be done before this becomes operational!.
Pastor Lisa's book study will start Tuesday, September 22nd at 7:00 pm. Our first book will be I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness, by Austin Channing Brown. All are welcome to join this study we hope will deepen our conversation about welcome and inclusion.
I'm Still Here is a very readable book about one women's experiences as an African American woman. It will be a good place to start as we discuss racism and the church's role in responding to the cries of those who are suffering in this country.
