St. Andrew's is a Welcoming and Affirming Congregation

ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 21-25, 2018

 

Thank you and congratulations on your generous offerings to the 2018 Easter/Refugee Fundraiser.  Offerings to date total $101,805.92.  Of that amount $20,000.00 will be used for the new refugee sponsorship plan, and $81,805.92 will be used for the general fund.  In the original budget we hoped that this fundraiser would provide  $74,200.00 for the general fund, so it is a wonderful blessing that we have exceeded that amount by nearly $8,000.00! & have made the new refugee program possible.

Congregational Meeting

The congregation of St. Andrew's is called to meet immediately following worship on Sunday, June 10, 2018 for the purpose of considering a revised budget for the year 2018.

This meeting is called in response to two motions that were passed at the congregational meeting on February 25,2018.

Your attendance and participation in this meeting is important; we need to have our revised budget in place.

You will help support  the development of thriving farmer and worker communities so they have more control over their futures and the environment in which they live and work.  You can use the power of your purchases to make a difference in the lives of farmers and workers all over the world.

BE A HUNGERFIGHTER IN DOWNTOWN KITCHENER
Every Saturday, dedicated volunteers help transform wasted food into balanced vegan meals for our downtown community. Work with Food Not Bombs to cut, chop, peel and prep food at The Working Centre – no cooking or food service experience required!  Food preparation not your thing… drivers and servers also needed.  If you would like a partner for your first time a member of our St. Andrew’s Outreach Committee can join you. Please contact Mark Johnson at markedjohnson@gmail.com to book a Saturday that works for you!  

St. Andrew's is closed on Fridays with the exception of a special event or a funeral. Please feel free to leave a message on the person's voice mail that you are calling and they will get back to you as soon as possible.

Looking for the perfect gift for the person who has everything? Why not give the gift of a donation in their honour to your favourite St. Andrew’s Mission. For those who watch us on television for a birthday or anniversary you can make a donation to the TV ministry of St. Andrew’s in their name. A donation to C.E. or Youth, the bulletin, the library, Stephen Ministry, VIP, or a donation to support our church buildings all show your love of our church being shared with loved ones and friends. Cards are available from the office to send to the recipients to let them know of your generous and thoughtful gift.
