Thursday MEMO on Friday 
The Second Day of Christmas, Boxing Day, The Feast of St. Stephen

Don’t miss the Christmas picture gallery below!
We will have ONE service this coming Sunday, December 28th, at 10 o’clock. This will be a Festival of Lessons & Carols and Eucharist – a time to immerse ourselves in the Christmas story in word and song as we continue to celebrate this season of light and joy! 
We will also be honoring June and George Donovan with a reception following the service on the occasion of their 70th wedding anniversary! Thank you to Elaine & Brooks, Joan Wright, and Gretchen, along with the Donovan family for hosting the reception.
Christmas at Saint Andrew’s: Even the rain didn’t keep people away on Christmas Eve! Members, families, and friends squeezed in for our 5 PM Inter-generational Service as the children helped in the retelling the Christmas story. At midnight, the deep darkness of the hour was broken by the glow of candlelight, the resonance of trumpet, organ, and song, and the richness of warmth and love. 
And on Christmas morning yet another congregation gathered – sunshine flooding in – as we celebrated with joy the mystery of the Incarnation. Then the party continued with a Christmas Feast for 75!
My deep thanks to God, and to all whose love, faithfulness, and generosity of time and talent made the combined celebration so welcoming to so many friends old and new!  Special thanks to the choir and musicians, the altar guild, those assisting at the altar, and to Carol and her amazing team for the Christmas Feast. You are all a blessing to this church and the world!

See you in church!
Blessings, Heidi+
