The St. Andrew's yard sale will be November 15th & 16th.  There is a room of the school wing that we are putting all of the yard sale items in. It is the room with a sign on the door. If you have any items that you would like to donate, you can bring them to the church and put them on the left side of that room. Please do not bring clothes as we are not taking clothing. All other items are welcome! The last date to bring your items will be November 11th. The last week before the sale will be spent making sure all items are priced. Bring those items you were planning on giving away and help us raise some money for Outreach!
Elizabeth and Rev. Alex update
Hello, St. Andrew's! Wow, I have loved receiving all of your amazing get-well cards! Thank you so much! I have them around my house to encourage me and remind me of my awesome St. A's community. I am doing pretty well. I have started physical therapy and I am hopeful that that is going to help a lot. Elizabeth is doing great! I am hoping that she and I will be up for stopping by the Rally Day breakfast this Sunday! Hope to see y'all there. Love, Reverend Alex
