All Saint's Sunday

We remember them


NOVEMBER 3, 2019
Please join us at 8:30 am, 9:30 am or 11:00 am as we keep the Feast of All Saints by extolling exemplary lives, remembering those we love but see no longer, and examining our own responses to God’s call.

Funds Approved for New Septic System. At a special parish meeting on Sunday, October 20, Senior Warden Gary Naegle outlined the need for a new septic system. Parish members voted to withdraw from the endowment up to $100K for this work (the current estimate is closer to $70K). The senior warden's presentation can be heard here .
STOP and SHOP CARDS. The purchase of Stop & Shop cards provides an additional opportunity, over and above our pledging, to help support St. Andrew's while you buy your groceries. 5% of all card purchases go directly to St. Andrew's when paid for with cash or a personal check. Buy Stop & Shop cards after each service or during the week in the church office. We do accept Visa, Master Card and Discover but then we only net about 2 1/2% for St. Andrew's.
