October 15th 2023 – “The Peace of God”

2023-10-15 “The peace of God” 11 AM

Dear friends, 

This Sunday Edythe Arnott will be leading us in worship.

There are many things in our daily lives that can cause us anxiety and make us feel afraid.  Maybe sometimes we feel like the couple in the serigraph image below.  They’re walking through what looks like a lonely, deserted place.  It’s night.  They have lanterns but they still look a little nervous.  In his letter to the Philippians, the apostle Paul offers some advice that is still relevant for us in today’s world.  We’ll reflect on that in Sunday’s sermon.

Ecumenical Community Services (ECS) food bank located here at St Andrews is in need of non-perishable food items such as vegetables, soups, cereal, coffee and spaghetti sauce etc.

Should you wish to contribute please leave your donation in the box located outside the entrance to the sanctuary.  Thank you for helping the less fortunate families in our community.

If you have any questions concerning the food bank or ECS speak to Betty Grant downstairs during coffee hour.
