A Card from Father Mark!
Dear People of Saint Andrew’s,
While this “Thank You” note might seem rather unusual, it seemed appropriate (as well as very funny!) given the unusual many months I spent with you!
And yet I couldn’t have found a better group of people to share those difficult months with. For that I most sincerely thank you.
Just as you have been such a blessing and source of life/hope to me, I am certain you will be so to many others in the months and years ahead.
Please know that you remain in my heart and prayers, as I hope you will continue to hold me in yours as well.
With love and blessings,

Prayers and Reflections for this week
We have heard that the daily reflections and scripture readings provided during Lent were appreciated. Those of us writing them have also found it an enriching experience and have decided to continue. The meditations are written by persons from Saint Andrew’s, Gobin UMC and Beach Grove UMC. The daily meditations will be in the newsletter each week and go from Wednesday to Tuesday, except for Sunday. Whether you enjoy these every day, or as the Spirit moves you, may this resource continue to bring you spiritual food for the journey. Blessings!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to parishioners Gwen and Thom Morris for all of their hard work on cleaning up the Memorial Garden. It looks beautiful and your continued efforts are much appreciated!

Non Food Pantry Latest
Saturday, July 31
• Noon to 3:00 p.m.
There will be a drive through distribution coordinated by Kate Berry and sack lunches will be given out. We are very grateful to Martha Rainbolt, Carl Huffman, Karen Hirt Mannon, and Christiane Wisehart who have worked very hard to obtain supplies for the Non-Food Pantry. Kroger is not able to acquire enough products for us so the items are being purchased from a variety of sources. This is much more expensive. Donations to help offset this extra cost will be gratefully accepted!
