FROM THE PASTOR
Dear church family,
There's a spirit of self-sufficiency at St. Andrew that I really like. We tend to roll up our sleeves and get things done. That has been our story from the beginning -- an amazing story, really, of one project after another. This year we have another good challenge, which the church family is meeting with typical can-do spirit.
There will be friend-raisers and fundraisers -- opportunities on a regular basis for us to come together, enjoy good food and company, such as the annual Soup/Chili/Dessert Cookoff on February 17.
I'm especially glad when St. Andrew can reach out to the wider community. We'll do so with Family Promise, a ministry to families that are in need of temporary shelter, February 3-10.
And we're delighted to partner again with Helping Hands, a group of local students that is raising money for Clayton Ladd, a young man battling Soto's Syndrome, kidney disease, scoliosis, and cancer. The annual Helping Hands talent show will be St. Andrew on Friday, February 15, 5:30-7:00.
As we continue to reach out in Christian love, we find that God meets us more than halfway. God doesn;t just help those who help themselves -- God really helps those who help others.
With every blessing,
