Welcome to St. Andrew’s. On this Thanksgiving Sunday, we give thanks that you have decided to visit us here and we pray that you feel loved and welcomed in this family, Above all we pray that you will experience God’s presence in this place, and that God’s Spirit will go with you through the week.  In a society based on consumerism and competition it can be very difficult to experience a sense of thanksgiving; whatever we have, there is always so much more to get!  And yet we cannot have any peace until we are thankful.  We hope our worship today will help you to feel thankful.


The Sermon will be Thankfulness is the First Thing

The Sanctuary Choir is an important part of worship here at St. Andrew’s. We performa variety of music, primarily with a religious theme, at our regular Sunday morning worship services during the period of September through June. We also present three special concerts during the course of the year, on the occasion of our church anniversary in October and at Christmas and Easter. The Sanctuary Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. under the direction of our choir director, Robert Houghton.Members and adherents of St. Andrew’s who enjoy singing are invited to contact Douglas Haas, our organist and Master of Music, after the Sunday morning service or by phone at (519) 578-4430 or email d.haas@standrewskw.com.  The ability to read music is definitely an asset but not obligatory. We are particularly in need of men. For new members or adherents at St. Andrew’s, the Sanctuary Choir is a very good way of becoming integrated into the life of our church since it represents a smaller group within the congregation with a common interest which meets regularly.
