Announcements for the week of August 01 to August 05

Join us all Summer long for our brand new Sunday School series: Loving God from the Inside Out based on the Disney movie Inside Out. Meet all of the emotions, participate in games, crafts and science experiments and most importantly - learn about how ALL of our emotions can be used to praise and worship God.

We welcome back Rev. Dr. J. Mark Lewis this morning and we pray that he may feel rested and renewed from his time away.

Rev. Greg Smith is on study leave for most of this week and will be back in the office on Friday, August 5, 2016.

Bazaar Talk: The annual Pickling Bee is on Thursday, August 11, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The time interval of greatest need for helpers in the kitchen is between 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. If you can help for part or all of the bee, please email Karen.wegner@rogers.com or the church office, mailbox@standrewskw.com. Donated Mason Jars (pints, quarts, half pints) can be dropped off in the office. Monetary donations to support the cause are also gratefully accepted and eligible for a tax receipt. A good time is always a by-product of this great event.

The Servant Queen and the King She Serves: Rev. Dr. J. Mark Lewis will preach a sermon based on this book on September 18, 2016. If you would like a copy you are welcome. A suggested donation of $4.00 each covers the cost of the book.

The moon is full and we hope that your mite can is close to full too! Don’t forget to add your loose change to it over the summer as the agencies that we support never stop working. This year we provided funds to the Working Centre Soup Kitchen, to Ray of Hope for new tables for their dining room, to KW Counseling for people who cannot afford their services and to The YWCA Emergency Shelter for a new dining room set for their common room. Thank you for your generosity to our local community!

Gas & Grocery Cards - Sales Locations For the months of July and August the gas and grocery cards will be sold each Sunday at the Chapel entrance only. During the week, cards will be available in the church office. Your support of this project is much appreciated.

The church would like to e-mail receipts for this year’s income tax purposes to help reduce costs and make receipting more convenient for the giver. Do you have an e-mail address? Could you please send an e-mail to mailbox@standrewskw.com. Thank you.

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.
