Ramada Luncheon:  Our annual March luncheon at the Courtyard at the Ramada is March 15.  Plan to come enjoy a lunch out with others from the congregation.  The buffet costs $18.99 (about $22 including tax but not the tip) or order from the menu.  Please let Mary Charters know by Sunday, March 8 if you will be able to attend so the a reservation can be made so we may sit together. 

Easter Tree Outreach Initiative for March

The outreach initiative leading up to Easter will be creating Blessing Bags for the homeless which will be distributed to the Barnabas warming centre. Blessing Bags are Ziploc bags filled with useful necessities and a few treats. Pick up Easter eggs from the tree at the back of the church from March 8th and bring back the eggs and the listed item in plastic bags to place under the tree by March 29th. Thanks for your generous support.

Book Study “Lent for Everyone” Small Group will meet each Tuesday at noon ( 12:10-12:50.) You can participate in the group discussion without having the book.  Sheila Black can provide you with the daily readings.

Don’t forget to Pray…Luke 18:1.  Saint Andrew’s Sanctuary will be open each Tuesday of Lent from 9am-1pm.  Feel free to drop in and pray for our church family, our Session & Board of Managers and the person God is preparing to lead us into our future.
Matthew 18:20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
