January 21st 2024 – “Following Jesus”

2024-01-21 “Following Jesus” 11:00 AM

Dear friends,

THIS SUNDAY Edythe Arnott will be leading us in worship.

ST. ANDREW’S 99TH ANNIVERSARY POTLUCK LUNCHEON is coming up next Sunday, January 28th!  We still have space available for main courses and desserts.  As this is a potluck celebration, we encourage everyone to share their culinary creations.  A couple of us will help coordinate with everyone during Coffee Hour to prevent an overabundance of one dish. 

There are also slots available for assistance with the setup for the event, but many helping hands make light work!  You’ll find a signup sheet near the coffee hour signup area.  Mark your calendars! 

 I think many of us would agree that it’s not always easy to follow Jesus.  Perhaps Mark’s Gospel can provide some encouragement and guidance in our faith walk as we seek to follow Jesus into this coming week.
