and posted on Tuesdays
You'll still find the latest sing-a-along on our FB video page. Mr. Mike and Pastor Lisa will keep your kids entertained for fifteen minutes or so. Maybe you'll have time to brush your teeth--or have a cup of coffee!
We will begin to introduce Christian to you all virtually and in appropriate socially-distanced ways!
Vicar Christian will be leading Wednesday morning bible study and working with our care ministers to engage in pastoral care this summer. Christian has exciting plans for an internship project to build community--virtual and actual-- with middle school and high school youth!
Want some wonderful worship music to listen to while your staying home? Email Christian with your favorite worship songs and we will add them to our "St. Andrew Favorites" playlist on Spotify! Spotify is a free music streaming app.

Cindy will be moving to remote office administration. Although she may not be physically in the office, you can still reach her Tuesday-Friday between the hours of 8:00-12:30 at 401-213-4124. If you have something to drop off at the church, please call her before doing so!
We look forward to worshipping with you virtually on Sunday, July 5th. Schedule as usual—music starts at 9:20, worship at 9:30 am.
Which friend or colleague or neighbor can you invite to join us virtually this week?
We're plannning an outdoor worship service with proper physical distancing and masks on Sunday, July 12th at 9:30.
Please contact Cindy to add your name to the list of those planning to attend and BYOC--BRING YOUR OWN CHAIR! There will also be the opportunity to remain in your car as you participate in worship!
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.
We're excited for the chance to meet! This will be another experiment to see what might work for us as a congregation.
I wanted to share with you two videos and a written document Bishop Jim has prepared as resources for congregations. The church council is referring to these as we manage things during this time and make decisions about worship and community life going forward. Link to first video. Link to the second. Link to the bishop's letter.
If you have feedback about anything related to worship: - comments about the livestream, - about last Sunday's parking lot worship, - thoughts about doing an outside worship service BYOC ["Bring Your Own Chair" outside on the church lawn, etc. contact Pastor Lisa. The council will be doing a Congregational survey once the governor has made her recommendations for phase three--probably by July 1st. You will also be receiving a letter next week about the council's decisions about resuming in-person worship services.
I hope you are willing to be patient with us as we seek to offer a safe and also spiritually meaningful worship experience to our St. Andrew partners--without putting our most vulnerable members at risk. Peace be on the process.
