Announcements
Vestry Meeting | Sunday, June 23 | 12:30 PM
Our monthly vestry meeting will take place in the upstairs of the Parish House following Sunday’s 10:30 AM Sung High Mass. 
Textile Village Servant Corps | Informational Meeting
Tuesday, June 25 | 6-7 PM | Parish Hall
Textile Village Servant Corps (TVSC) is a faith-based initiative seeking to provide young adults with opportunities for a yearlong immersive non-profit work experience while living in an intentional Christian community not far from Saint Andrew's. The goal of TVSC, which ultimately hopes to be a part of the Episcopal Service Corps network, is to nurture a deeper sense of civic responsibility, neighborliness, and gospel living in its participants. It is the hope of the program to work with agencies who are ingrained in the communities in need around us. Given TVSC's planned proximity to Saint Andrew's, Father Gary has been involved in helping to get this initiative going and is excited to share more information about it with the parish. This informational session, which will be led by Courtney Watson, the Founder and Director of TVSC, is an opportunity for folks at Saint Andrew's and in the wider community to learn more about this initiative and to find out how we can support it. For more information or to RSVP for the event, please email textilevillagesc@gmail.com or visit textilevillageservants.com.
Project Host Community Dinner | June 27 | 6 PM
The Project Host Soup Kitchen began in 1981 as an extension of Saint Andrew's, but by 1994, the kitchen was feeding more people than it could accommodate. The imminent need to attack issues of hunger and poverty in Greenville has remained at the core of Project Host’s growth. Last year, 144,117 meals were served to our community.

A community dinner will be held on June 27 with guest Chef Patrick O'Cain of Gàn Shān Station​ in Asheville. This dinner will include four courses with beer and wine pairings from the Community Tap. Community Dinners provide training opportunities for our CC Pearce Culinary School students and all proceeds benefit our programs. Dinners have limited seating and require a reservation. 
Sunday Altar Flower Dedications Update
with New Suggested Donation Range ($50-$100)
Every Sunday, we have the opportunity to offer a special dedication of the altar flowers in honor, memory, or celebration of loved ones. As many of you know, we were blessed for many years by the gift of Sandra Kelley's skill and artistry in finding and arranging the flowers each week--as we were also the beneficiaries of Sandra's impressive commitment to doing that work at such a low cost to the parish (which accounted for the low suggested donation that we have had for altar flowers to date).

After many years of faithful service, Sandra recently retired from that ministry, and we have been working to come up with alternative arrangements going forward. For the foreseeable future, we have made arrangements with a retired florist to provide flowers each week at a cost to the church of $100.00 per Sunday. Recognizing that this is a significant increase in cost to the church, we are increasing our suggested donation for dedications, such that we are now suggesting that donations for dedicating flowers be in the range of $50.00 to $100.00 for a Sunday.

If you would like to sign up for a Sunday, please see the sign up sheet on the bulletin in the Parish Hall. You may place a check in the offering plate with "Altar Flowers" noted in the memo.

Finally, if you have an interest in trying to organize or serve in a flower guild that would consist of parish volunteers who could be responsible for the altar flowers each week--or if you have other ideas about how we could provide altar flowers at a lower cost, please let our Father Gary or our senior warden, Riley Owens, know.
Parish Night at the Ballpark | Tuesday, July 16 | 7 PM
Join your fellow parishioners for food, fellowship, and baseball with the Greenville Drive. We have reserved a limited amount of tickets together at $9 per seat. C ontact the office to reserve yours today.
Columbarium Niches Available
Saint Andrew’s has a limited number of spots in our columbarium still available for purchase. The cost is $2200 which may be paid in installments. Please contact the office if you would like more information.
Parking Update
With the opening of the Homewood Suites parking garage (across Markley Street), folks coming to Saint Andrew’s now have another parking option for evening or weekend worship or other church events. Thus, on evenings and weekends, you can now park in the designated "permit parking only" spots in the Homewood Suites parking garage—in addition to parking in spots marked with yellow rectangles or white numbers in the Pendleton Street Baptist parking lot (adjacent to the church). 

A reminder that you should never park in red-numbered spots in the parking lot adjacent to the church, since Pendleton Street Baptist Church has set those aside for paid hourly parking via a phone app (unless you plan to pay via the app). 

Also, if you are visiting the church during weekday business hours, you should try to find street parking or use one of the available yellow rectangle spots in the adjacent parking lot. 
Upcoming Safe Church Training Opportunities
Safe Church training is important for anyone volunteering in children's ministries, or doing any lay ministry, such as lay eucharistic visitors, involving potentially one-on-one ministry within the parish. We also encourage all parishioners, especially those in positions of leadership - such as vestry members and other ministry area leaders, to get Safe Church certified.

There is an upcoming Safe Church training session being offered at Christ Church Episcopal School:  Wednesday, August 14, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.  To register for this class at Christ Church School, please click on this link. There is also a Safe Church training session being offered at Church of the Advent in Spartanburg, SC on Sunday, August 25, from 4:00 to 7:00 PM If you are interested in this session, please contact Joanne Wood at jwood@churchofadvent.org or call her at 864-504-3691. 

Please make sure to let our parish office know if you sign up for one of these classes. (We are also working to set up a training session at Saint Andrew's in the near future.) More info on Safe Church Training here.
Service Opportunities
Sing with the Summer Choir
During the summer, music in our Sunday Masses is led by the Saint Andrew's Summer Choir, which is made up of choir members who gather on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM (and not on Wednesday evenings), to prepare the music for each Sunday 10:30 AM Mass. With this limited time commitment the Summer Choir is an excellent opportunity for prospective new members of the choir to "try us out" for a Sunday or two (or more). We always need additional singers--especially altos--to reinforce our sections, so please consider joining the Summer Choir. If you have questions, please contact the Parish Office--or just show up on Sunday morning!  
Sunday Coffee Hour Refreshments
We are blessed to be a growing parish, and one of the ways that we offer hospitality to our many visitors is through our coffee hour after the 10:30 AM mass every Sunday. Please consider signing up for a Sunday on one of the sign up sheets hanging on the parish bulletin board. 
Nursery During Sunday School and Worship
Staff member Amanda Abreu oversees our Sunday morning nursery during the 10:30 AM Mass. Going forward, we need at least one parish volunteer each Sunday to serve as our second nursery caregiver. Thanks to those parishioners who have already volunteered to help. If you have gifts for working with infants and young children--and have "Safe Church" training, we could use your help! If you are interested, please e-mail Amanda
