WE ARE LOOKING FOR A VOLUNTEER WHO WOULD BE WILLING TO PICK UP DONUTS FOR OUR SUNDAY SERVICES THIS SUMMER.  If you are willing to stop in to Safeway on your way in to church and pick up 3-dozen donuts for our Fellowship time between services, PLEASE MARK YOUR COMMUNICATION CARD

 

SHOE BOX BLANKETS—MONDAY, JULY 3RD—10:00 AM—1:00 PM

This group gathers at Broadway Quilts—join us as we make blankets for the Christmas Shoe Boxes.  No sewing skills required!  We will meet all year long on the 1st Monday of every month. 

All questions can be directed to Karen Taylor: 996-1143.

 

BRING BACK YOUR CENTS-ABILITY CUPS AND POUR YOUR COINS INTO THE COLLECTION JUG.  Then take the cup back home, collect more coins and repeat the process all over again.  This is an on-going collection program that is a way for all of us to help in the battle against hunger.  These small acts of faithfulness can really add up:  One hundred persons in a congregation will contribute $180 a month at two cents a meal.  That’s $2,160 a year.  If all of us at St. Andrew participate, multiply that by a factor of four.  That’s over $8,000 a year!  Pick up your Cents-Ability cup today and get started!  Let’s make a difference together.

 

THE ST. ANDREW WEBSITE – www.andrewpres.org – is a great way to find the latest information about what’s happening in our church. The News and Notes and the weekly calendar are posted on the site prior to the Sunday services and you can find  the latest information about upcoming activities for children, small groups, fellowship events, new member classes. etc.

 

YOUR PLEDGE TO ST. ANDREW CAN BE DEBITED DIRECTLY FROM YOUR BANK ACCOUNT. 

St. Andrew offers electronic giving for those of you who wish to have your contributions transferred electronically to the church’s account. If you travel, this is particularly helpful in keeping up with your intended offerings. One simple, easy to use authorization form can begin or change your electronic contribution amount. Contact the church office if you would like an authorization form or for more details.

 

PLEASE RESERVE THE CIRCLE DRIVE PARKING AREA AND ALL ACCESSIBLE PARKING SLOTS FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES!  And, remember to please enter from Arnold Drive and exit north onto Sobre Vista.  Thank you for your cooperation!
