As we enter the month of June with weddings, graduations, and vacations posted on the calendar, many also embrace a change of pace for the summer weeks ahead. Even here at St. Andrew's, the calendar looks a little different as many of our leaders seek rest and renewal. However, our calling to lift up Jesus to the community in Worship, Education, and Service remains throughout the year.
This Sunday, we begin our summer worship schedule with one service at 9:30 AM. This week we gather for the Festival of Pentecost (feel free to wear red!) as we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit, the birthday of the church and our mission together. Also, many of our Sunday School children will be assisting with the leadership of worship as we give thanks to God for all that they have learned and shared over this past program year. Following worship, there will be a light brunch in St. Andrew's Hall, to which all of you are invited.
Vacation Bible School is coming to St. A's June 16-19 from 9AM - Noon for children ages 3-6. If you are available and would like to help, please contact Janice Stickley in the church office.
Hospitality is needed for Lemonade on the Lawn this summer following each 9:30 Worship. Pick a Sunday and sign up to serve lemonade / iced tea and cookies (please plan to bring napkins and cups as well) for about 50-60 people. This is a great way to encourage staying connected as a community during the summer months. Sign up on the sheet in the narthex or call the church office for available dates.
God's richest blessings in the summer ahead. See you in church!
