Service of Rededication

Join us this Sunday for an historic service at Saint Andrew’s as we rededicate Hamilton Hall (Don and Laurie Hamilton will be present) and dedicate our new Children’s Ministry space.

The children of the parish will lead the service, and our new Children’s Minister, Kevin Johnston, will preach. We are asking anyone who can to bring a dish of finger foods to contribute to the festive reception that follows in Hamilton Hall.

In addition, this Sunday afternoon Bob and Joanne Haymaker invite you to their home for a “Walk in the Woodsâ€â€”maps to their property will be made available Sunday after the morning service.

– Father John

Fall Sermon Series:The Kingdom of God. During Jesus’ ministry there was one topic he spoke about far more often than any other: “The Kingdom of God,†a concept we will unpack and explore through some of the parables found in the Gospels.
