Fall Season Underway

Dear Friends,

As many of of us adjust our schedules with the beginning of a new school year, so St. Andrew's adjusts to the routine of our program year. This Saturday we return to our regular weekly service of Holy Communion at 5PM. This service is more intimate and little less formal with more spoken liturgy and monthly appearances by our acoustic group. Begin to think about family members, friends, and neighbors who could benefit from Saturday worship. We also return to our regular worship schedule on Sunday mornings as well.

8:15 AM - Traditional Worship: a "more reflective" service including a time of remembrance on this the 10th anniversary of the tragic events of 9-11.

11:00 AM - Kick Off Sunday - "In God We Trust" : A simple but celebrative worship gathering, including procession and song from our Sunday School children and an interactive message as we give thanks to God for his constant protection and love in our lives. This service, about 45 minutes in length will lead us directly to our luncheon. St. Andrew's Church will provide burgers, hot dogs, beverages, and paper goods. However, we are asking you to bring salads and deserts to share. If your last name begins with the letter A-M, please bring a dessert. If your last name begins with the letter N-Z, please bring a salad. (Food can be left on the kitchen counter where it will be refrigerated as necessary) Bring your family and friends as we catch up with each other after a long summer and look forward to the fall season ahead.

Also, Please keep in your prayers:
- those who face the challenges of hurricanes, tropical storms, and floods
- the unemployed and underemployed of our communities
- families experiencing broken relationships and in need of healing
- young adults away from home at school or in military service
- those whose lives were devastated by the events of 9-11 and continue to seek healing
- our Sunday School teachers and students as they begin a new program year
- the churches of this community and our common mission to bear the presence and love of Christ to others

See you in church!
Pastor Mueller
