Parish Party
Sunday, August 28th, 6:00pm

Join us for a Parish Party at the home of Margaret McLarty, 129 Saint Andrew’s Drive, in Jackson. We’ll enjoy beverages and snacks as well as fellowship. If you think you can attend, plesae RSVP at standrews.ms/party or call the church office. Please don’t skip if you forget to RSVP, however. If you’d like to help provide food/drinks or set up for the party, contact Susan Nix at susan.r.nix@gmail.com or indicate so when you sign up online.
Education for Ministry
Would you like to be a part of an amazing community where you build relationships through sharing stories, worship, and study?

Well, here’s your chance to study both the Old and New Testament, explore 3000 years of church history and gain a better understanding of the word theology.

Education for Ministry (EFM) is now looking for a few good members to join beginning in September. We meet on Thursday morning from 9:00a.m. to 11:30a.m., which includes a snack break.

Now before you say it’s too much or too hard, consider these facts: while it is a 4 year program, you only sign up for a year at a time; we don’t take attendance or have pop quizzes; and if you need to miss some, we are flexible.

Current and former students will be waiting to see you in the parish hall during the formation hour on August 21st. Come by for more details and you can ask all the questions you have been pondering forever. You can also email Virginia Powell at vtpowell@mac.com
