Children and leaders (and during Sunday worship, the entire Saint Andrew’s congregation) participated in a down-under themed Outback Rock Weekend Adventure, Saturday and Sunday mornings, June 27 & 28, 2015.
By all accounts, a fun time was had by all, but we’ll let you be the judge!
Thank-you Jacqueline and your whole team!
The Vacation Bible School would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all the people who volunteered, the children that attended, the people who offered food and those that prayed for VBS.
Please join a family Walk with Refugees starting from the Saint Andrew’s Presbyterian Church lawn (512 Charlotte St.) at 1:30pm on World Refugee Day, Saturday, June 20. The 1-hour walk, organized in partnership with the Multicultural Association of Fredericton, will pass by houses built by Fredericton’s first wave of refugees, through the early cemetery and return to the church. Participants will learn how important refugees have been and how they continue to enrich our community. On return to Saint. Andrew’s church, we will share lemonade on the lawn. Rain date is Saturday, July 4th.
Dear members and friends of Saint Andrew’s congregation:
This year we celebrate the 190th anniversary of a Presbyterian presence within the city of Fredericton. June has been designated as “Anniversary Month” and we will have a special service of worship on June 7th at 11:00 AM. The Moderator of the Atlantic Synod, the Reverend Jeff Murray, has been invited to preach. A pot-luck lunch will follow.
The Session hopes you will plan to attend as together we celebrate our heritage. Consider inviting friends and family as we give thanks for the faith and dedication of those who have influenced our lives. Many attended Sunday School, Scouts, Guides, and other programs at Saint Andrew’s. Perhaps a wedding was a significant event.
“The Church is Christ together with his people.” These words from Living Faith remind us that the church is not a building but a people. The building is where the church worships. Let us continue to build a church without boundaries; a church that welcomes and includes all people; a church that proclaims the love of God as we see it in the life of Jesus the Christ.
Let us celebrate our history and heritage as together we plan and work for tomorrow.
Sincerely and on behalf of the Session,
Douglas Blaikie Minister, Saint Andrew’s Presbyterian Church 512 Charlotte St., Fredericton, N. B. E3B 1M2
