Note from the Rev. Wendy MacWilliams, Interim Moderator:

    On behalf of the session, I am pleased to inform you that the Rev. Jon Van Den Berg will preach for the call here at Saint Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on Sunday, June 17 at 11 a.m.  A congregational meeting will take place immediately following service that same day, in the church hall, to ascertain whether the congregation is prepared to proceed with the call and if it wishes to recommend to the Presbytery of NB that a call be extended.

    Arrangements are being made for Rev. Van Den Berg to meet with the session and various committees of Saint Andrew’s on Saturday, June 16.  In addition, a church potluck will be held that Saturday night to give the congregation, Rev. Van Den Berg, and his wife opportunity to meet one another.

    A letter has been prepared for members and adherents with additional information, and it will be available for pick-up at the back of the sanctuary Sunday morning (June 3).  If you are not at worship that day, your letter will be mailed or delivered to you by your elder.

The Tuesday Morning Ladies Group would like to thank all those who donated plants and books to the sale last weekend. Left over plants were gratefully accepted by Mission Thrift Store. Leftover books were donated to Value Village.

Roof Fund Campaign

At the annual congregational meeting on Feb 25, 2018, the urgency of taking action on the deteriorating roof was emphasized.  Since then a significant leak has developed in the sanctuary.   A budget of $92,000 was approved at the annual meeting to complete a new roof, and a ‘Roof Fund’ has now been created to accept donations to help defray the cost. Since this is a very sizeable cost, and available resources are limited, we will need to raise a significant portion of the cost from donations in order to proceed.

Your prayerful consideration to contribute generously to this urgent appeal is needed in order to maintain Saint Andrew’s beautiful church building.

Donation forms and envelopes marked “Roof Fund” are available on the tables at the back of the church. Your Donation, along with the completed form, can be put in the offering plate, can be sent to the Church Office, or given to a member of the Board or Session, whose names are shown in this bulletin. If you want someone to pick up your donation, please contact the church office at 455-8220. We sincerely thank you for your consideration to this urgent appeal. Donations are deductible for tax purposes.

Roof Fund Balance: The Roof Fund balance is now at $67,657. Thanks for your support.
