Sharing in Prayer this Morning: You are invited to share concerns and joys this morning. Fill out a prayer form and place it in the basket in the narthex; they will be shared at prayer time. Please keep the HIPAA laws in mind when requesting prayers for someone else, make sure you have their permission in full before sharing their information and requesting cards from card ministry, thank you.
Weather Reminder: In case of extreme weather for Sunday Worship at St. Andrew’s, we will activate the Prayer Tree, and notification will go out via phone (when possible) and email. In addition, we have established an account with ABC Channel 12 for listing of any Sunday closure. Church service closures are not typically streamed live on ABC 12, but are available on their website (www.abc12.com) or on their phone app. In case of very poor conditions, please error on the side of safety. The Lord understands!
From Member Care: Join us on March 29 for a Birthday Party during second hour! We will be celebrating Jan - Jun birthdays after Worship with cake, ice cream and party snacks. Easter flower orders are due back by March 29th.
Presbyterian Women: Another meeting will be happening on March 28th, at 10a.m. all women are welcomed and encouraged to come.
Highlights of February Session Meeting
Christian Education continues to work with Children’s Church educators to make them aware of and adhere to teaching responsibilities. It’s a short time, and it’s important for our kids to learn about the Word of God.
Concerns and Missions shared that One Great Hour of Sharing runs February 26 through Easter.
Motion was sustained to establish a Presbyterian Women’s Group at St. Andrew’s.
Grounds and Facilities has renewed the annual lawn bug control and weed prevention contract.
It is currently working on possibilities for making our church more handicap accessible.
Member Care continues to explore ways to limit our use of consumable and non-recyclable items, particularly during Coffee Hour. Birthdays will be honored twice yearly rather than monthly.
Planning & Administration has asked that all members let them, or church secretary know how many keys their family possesses.
Worship Committee saw a motion sustained to approve Good Friday service on April 10 at 7pm. The committee submitted guidelines for Sunday Worship Liturgists, to make it easier for all to hear the Word of the Lord. If you are a Scripture reader on any Sunday morning, please see Debbie Koski for guidelines.
Annual Membership List reviewed. Session is currently working on revisions to the Church Handbook to simplify understanding of who is responsible for doing what.
