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 St. Andrew’s Bridge Club is preparing for the 2017/2018 season. This is a FUN league with players of varying levels. However, some knowledge of the game is necessary. We meet once each month from September until May for bridge and fellowship. Anyone interested in joining should contact Marie Young 519-888-6015 or Jean Plust at 519-886-6824 by August 15th.

Camp K could use your help! We are so grateful for the donations from the congregation so far this year. Here are a few items that the camp still needs this season. Dish Soap, Paper Towels, Sidewalk Chalk and 2-Litre Pop Bottles.

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!

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.
