Thank you, Gene Crawford+, for a thought-provoking sermon last Sunday on “Grace”.  Watch for information on how to access it. It is definitely worth a read, if you didn’t catch it ‘live’.

 

WATCH FOR:  The October Newsline… and this year’s Stewardship Invitation in your home mailbox.  The St. Andrew’s community is always astounding in our collective response to our own needs, the needs of the greater community, and our opportunity to worship together.

 

Gamma House gives everyone a big THANK YOU for the $2000 raised last Sunday at the Bluegrass and BBQ Festival.

 

The Blessing of the Animals – We’ll join forces with the Humane Society of North Central Arkansas for our annual opportunity to honor St. Francis, bless our animal companions, and help the Humane Society take care of ‘the least of these’.   Bring your cats, dogs, rabbits, horses, lizards, snakes…

 

Shoe Boxes are here for Operation Christmas Child – Filled boxes due back by 11/15!!  No fluids or candy.
