Pork -n- Kraut Dinner: A Big Thank You goes to all who worked and supported our Pork-n-Kraut Dinner yesterday. It is good to bring back those things that help support the Church. It is through our activities – that we really learn to be a “Church Community”.
C.R.O.P. Walk last Sunday: Special Thanks to all who supported the walkers last Sunday. This year; St. Andrew’s was responsible for feeding the walkers after the walk. Our hostess did an excellent job. Thanks to Elizabeth for coordinating the walk. Thanks to all who made sandwiches, soup, and other goodies. Thanks to Darlene & Carlene for transporting & setting up the food & refreshments for the walkers at St. Paul’s Methodist Church in Big Pool. Great Job y’all!

Our 2nd Contemporary Worship Service is today. “One Mission” Praise Team

Foundations Family Church, our Christian Bothers & Sisters from Hagerstown; are joining us for our Contemporary Worship today. Some of these folks are also with us this morning at our 9:00 A.M. Traditional Worship.
Re-usable Bulletins: As mentioned last Sunday, we are now using a re-usable laminated bulletin for the Eucharist. This is a tremendous saving to the Church, and the environment. Thanks to Chuck & Patty for doing this for the Church. Carlene Staley will continue to donate the scripture inserts, and we will still have printed announcements. Special Thanks goes to Amy & Chris. Fr. Steve has been emailing the weekly master bulletin to Amy and Chris, who in turn have been making copies of the emailed master bulletin for the weekly services.
Mandantory Clergy Conference: Fr. Steve, and Deacon John will be leaving later today for a 2 day Clergy Conference in Ocean City, MD. This conference is mandatory for active clergy in the Diocese of Maryland. Melanie is also attending the conference. The family support group (FOCUS) has an activity planned for the clergy spouses.
