Throughout this Easter season, we are reminded of the ways that the risen Christ appears to us and calls us to be his witnesses to his life and love. This upcoming summer, a number of St. Andrew's Youth will bear witness to God's grace as they join thousands of other Lutheran Youth in New Orleans for several days of service, learning, and worship. You can support them in their efforts with your prayers but also by showing your support and attending our annual Spaghetti Dinner taking place this Saturday, April 21 from 4-7PM in St. Andrew's Hall.
Also, our Outreach Committee is calling us to broader witness outside the four walls of our church. They are having a reorganizational meeting this Sunday evening as they turn their focus and efforts toward families and seniors in need, disaster response, and hands on service projects for those with limited personal and financial resources. We will be working with organizations of the congregation as well as partnering with other churches and our synod. We hope that many of you would be able to join us for this informational meeting. We are in need of individuals who are skilled tradesman, less skilled worker bees, people who can make phone calls, send e-mails, or serve refreshements, those with trucks and tools, and those already connected with social service agencies / non-profits in the comunity. We will be meeting at St. Andrew's this Sunday night, April 22nd at 7PM. We expect the meeting to last about an hour. Come join us as we strive to have a greater impact upon this and other surrounding communities. See you in church!
