Beware of Scammers Pretending to be Mother Brenda
What to watch for:
The latest round of phishing scams comes in the form of an email that looks like it is from Mother Brenda and asks you to email her back. The email address is similar to Mother Brenda's, but not the same. Mother Brenda's email is Many of the scammers use a g-mail address. We never use a g-mail address at church. Poor grammar is also a clue that it's a hoax email.

What to do:
Question anything that seems unusual and don't reply to the email in question. Open up a new email to ask the church a question. 

Our clergy won't ask you to buy gift cards in an email. We have plenty of Pastoral Care funds to take care of such needs.

Have you Voted?
Deadline September 14
Our Faith in Action committee reminds you that every vote counts, and that your vote is a way of standing in solidarity with the oppressed, the marginalized, and those who have less than they need. Let's be a "100% voting" congregation!
Meals Needed
One of the ways we take care of each other at St. Andrew's is by providing a meal or two for a family experiencing a health crisis or moving through a tragedy. If you're willing to be on a rotation of people to do so, please email the office.
