Thank you so much for your incredible generosity in this season of giving. So many individuals and families will be blessed in the weeks ahead because of the incredible ways that you have opened your hearts and hands with the creation of quilts, gingerbread houses, and home baked cookies as well as your donations of food, blankets, clothing, and Christmas gifts for families in need. It is a great honor and deep privilege to serve among such incredible people. After a weekend with family and preaching at the installation of a dear friend, I look forward to being back with you in worship this weekend as Christmas rapidly approaches. Coming up -
Saturday Evening Christmas Canata - 5PM
Familiar and new Christmas Carols with a string quartet, handbells, flute, organ, percussion, a choir of adults and children, and moving narrations of the Christmas story. Bring family and friends. Many people who attended this beautiful event last year commented following the service, "Now it really feels like Christmas!" Soup supper (with some amazing soups made by our members) to follow in St. Andrew's Hall. I look forward to seeing many of you there.
Sunday Worship 8:45 & 11 AM - "Ask the Pastor"
The message this morning will be shaped by anonymous questions from the congregation. If you have a question about the Bible, Advent, Christmas, church history, worship, St. Andrew's, or faith and daily life, bring it along. Even if it isn't addressed in worship, I will be in touch with you (confidentially) in the weeks to come to discuss your question.
Also prayerfully consider inviting a family member friend, co-worker, or neighbor to join you for worship on Christmas Eve.
Blessings to all of you in this Holy Season. See you in church!
