September 22, 2011

Services for this coming Sunday, September 25th, the Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost, will be at 8 and 10 am with guest priest, The Rev. Gail Avery.

Readings for this Sunday: Exodus 16:2-15, Psalm 105:1-6, 37-45; Philippians 1:21-30, Matthew 20:1-16

Last Sunday’s Service was enjoyed by all with guest priest, The Rev. Susan Ackley presiding.

On Sunday September 25 we will begin our 2012 Pledge Drive. Our Stewardship Committee of Gretchen Behr-Svendsen, George Rau, Elaine South, Sammie Wakefield and Marty Cloran have been at work since May planning this important event in our Parish. On Sunday we will present our plan and hand out packets to everyone. The plan this year promises to be fun as well as cause us to think hard about the meaning of St Andrews-in-the-Valley to our lives and to the lives of the surrounding communities and the world.

Help support our sponsored Boyscout Troop 151, this coming Sunday, for their annual popcorn fundraiser after the mornings’ services. There will be assorted sized and flavors to choose from.

"Brooks and Elaine want to thank everyone for their expressions of sympathy when we lost our beloved dog Cameron, and wish to introduce "Rusty" whom we will get on Oct 1." Thanks!

ALL ARE WELCOME! To join a Service of Morning Prayer, every Wednesday at 9 AM, led by one of our three licensed worship leaders.

A Collect for Stewardship,

God of our lives, you are always calling us to follow you into the future, inviting us in new ventures, new challenges, new ways to care, new ways to touch the hearts of all. When we become fearful of the unknown, give us courage. When we worry that we are not up to the task, remind us that you would not call us if you did not believe in us. When we get tired, or feel disappointed with the way things are going, remind us that you can bring change and hope out of the most difficult situations.

Blessings, Debra
