Our Prayer List:
A RENEWAL OF OUR PRAYER REQUESTS—STARTING SUNDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2021. A recommendation of the pillar group on worship was to more actively maintain the prayer list for Prayers of the People so that we are capturing prayer requests in a timely manner, our prayers are focused on the most immediate requests and outdated items are removed. Effective October 10, 2021, we will begin with a clean slate of names and more general prayers or expressions of thanksgiving. If you wish to continue to include a name or a more general prayer, such as for those afflicted by a natural disaster or hardship, or in thanksgiving for a specific blessing, such as the contributions of first responders, please submit your request by email to Heather Anne Slayton at email@example.com. Prayer requests for October 10 should be submitted by October 7. 2021. In addition, the ushers will have a form for requests made at the Sunday services. Please specify the duration of your request, with a maximum duration of 60 days. You may renew a request after 60 days by contacting Heather Anne. We will continue to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, as well as offer prayers for those for whom the altar flowers have been given.
Lots and Lots going on here!
Laboratory of Love:
What is our identity as a church in the island community? If you stopped someone on the street and asked them what comes to mind when they think of St. Andrew’s Church, what would their answer be? In this time of transition, we are forming a small group to open this conversation. Who are we? Who do we want to be? Let’s experiment with new and creative ideas. Please contact Cynthia Hubbard at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
And following in this same vein…
Ourselves: Our Community
Once the brainstorming brings us to some clear ideas of what St. Andrews feels passionate about in our island community – what comes next? We turn our ideas into action! If you are a “doer” and are interested in a small group that will design and implement ideas for reaching out to the community, join our new small group team, Ourselves: Our Community. Please contact Christine White at email@example.com
