• Jordan Schriver has been offered a wonderful new job! He has accepted it and will be moving away in early August. We are happy for him, but sad to see him go. In anticipation of this, a Search Committee is being formed to find his replacement. If you would like to be part of this exciting time and team please see Rev Jon, Jaqueline (Convenor), or Jordan to join the search! Anyone can be part of this team. All you need is a love of God’s people and a heart for enriching young spirits and minds!

• After many years as Convenor of the Mission, Development & Social Action Committee (new name Outreach & Mission Team) Dallas Davis is retiring from the position. He will still sit on the committee and so a great resource and help will be there for the new Convenor. The question is: Are you ready to be the new Convenor of the Mission Team? The position is open to anyone who has a heart for God’s people and a love of reaching the lost. Please see Rev Jon or Dallas for more information. Or of course volunteer your services!

• As stated at the AGM, Andrew Ottens will be leaving the Treasurer’s position. However, he and Carol have agreed to stay until a replacement is found. He has graciously agreed to help transition the new Treasurer into the position. The question is: Is God calling you to step up and serve your congregation in this very unique way? The position is open to anyone who desires to be instrumental in church finances and caring for the congregation daily operations. Please see Rev Jon or Andrew or Carol for more information. Or of course volunteer your services!

Saint Andrew’s Quilting Group

We met Friday afternoon in the church hall to sew quilt tops. Eleanor donated the fabric, Mary picked the date, the rest of us signed up and showed up!

We had a marvellous afternoon, and pieced three quilt tops! We will get them quilted and finished, and then donate them to Transition House or another charity.

We have plans to continue, to meet to sew again!

And that is the church in action! Isn’t this a great initiative — this group of women now have a very special reason to get together and to work together. I love it!!
