Announcements for the week of August 14 to August 18, 2017

Welcome to St. Andrew’s, we are thankful that you have chosen to be here today.  We hope that you will feel welcomed and loved in this place today.  We pray that this worship will help you to draw closer to God and to the people around you.  Please join us for a cold drink and fellowship in the garden after worship today.

The HR Committee is pleased to announce that Hannah Ma has accepted the position of Bookkeeper, replacing Tina Sawatzky, who will be leaving St. Andrews August 30th. Hannah has more than 15 years accounting experience, is a CPA, CGA Finalist and was a CPA Auditor in China for 10 years for publicly listed companies before moving to Canada. Hannah has previous experience with non-profit in her own church and we feel she will be a great addition to the St. Andrew’s staff. Please join us in welcoming Hannah to St. Andrew's!

The thrift shop is in urgent need of 2 people (husband and wife?) to volunteer in the thrift shop for 1 afternoon a month from September to June. We are open from 1 - 4 p.m. on the afternoons of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The thrift shop is an important part of St. Andrews, and if you can help out it will be very much appreciated. Please give this request your prayerful consideration and leave your name with the office staff, or contact Anne McConnell directly at 519 744-8946.  We are also in need of copy paper boxes for storing the out-of-season items. Please leave them in the office and mark them 'thrift shop'. Thank you!

BAZAAR TALK:Many thanks to all those who supported the Pickling Bee on Thursday, through donations and/or participation in the pickling of 4 bushels of beets in preparation for the Heather & Holly Bazaar scheduled for December 2. The purple-handed picklers enjoyed fellowship, laughter and a sense of accomplishment. Thanks again for your enthusiasm and hard work.

Looking for the perfect gift for the person who has everything? Why not give the gift of a donation in their honour to your favorite 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.
