Shifting Gears

Dear Friends,
    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.

Worship  -
This Sunday, we begin our summer worship schedule with one service at 9:30 AM.  This week,  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.  Come join us for this spirited celebration with refreshments to follow.
Education -
Vacation Bible School is coming to St. A's June 19-22 from 9 AM - Noon.   If you are available and would like to help, please contact Janice Stickley in the church office. 
Service -
 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. 

  As we get into the heart of vacation season and as more of our St. Andrew's community will be away over weekends, we will be offering occasional mid-week services of Holy Communion in our outdoor chapel (and inside if weather conditions are not favorable).  Worship will have a more casual feel outside and will be less than an hour in length (It does get dark!).  Also, these services will not be recycled versions of Sunday worship.  They will have their own simple music, a spoken liturgy and different readings and message from Sunday.  This summer, we will be focusing on the Psalms (which during the church year are simply sung without background, explanation, or reflection).  So even if you are here on Sunday, here's another opportunity to gather again to grow in faith.  We will be sending e-mail reminders to the congregation when we get closer to the dates but here is our midweek schedule for this summer (Mark your calendars).  Worship is on the third Wednesday of each month.

 Psalm 23 - June 21 @ 7PM
Psalm 91 – July 19 @ 7PM
Psalm 98 – August 16 @ 7PM

 God's richest blessings in the summer ahead.  See you in church!
Peace,

Pastor Mueller
