Dear St. Andrew’s family and friends,
I hope warm memories of a joyous Thanksgiving are still filling you hearts as we move into the new beginning of our church year and prepare for the birth of our Lord. This Sunday we will be celebrating the second week in Advent, practicing for our children’s Christmas program and getting ready to “hang the greens” in the Sanctuary.
Following the service this Sunday Albrecht and Caroline Good will be meeting all children interested in being part of the December 12th program. They will practice for about half an hour. Canon Kristin White is also with us this Sunday and she will be meeting with those interested in continuing to explore their faith and learn about the Episcopal Church in Hamilton Hall. On December 19 Rev. Kelsey will be offering an acolyte training after the service for everyone interested.
Finally, many, many thanks to everyone who has so generously pledged to help continue the work and life of St. Andrew’s in 2022. If you have yet to join our Every Perfect Gift effort this year, please prayerfully consider how you might help contribute to the life and ministry of our St. Andrew’s parish. We need you. If you should need a new pledge card, please contact Renee in the parish office at 653-3921. If you would like to make a contribution in memory of someone or in thanksgiving or in honor of someone by buying a poinsettia for the altar, please send those contributions to the church, or simply put it in the Sunday offering. All gifts will be listed in our Christmas mailings and bulletins.
As was mentioned on Sunday, your Search Committee and Vestry have been working hard. We patiently wait and fervently pray that we soon will have joyous news to share with you all.
Meanwhile, I send much love and wish many blessings for you all.
