Dear St. Andrew’s Community:

In the midst of fires, COVID and political turmoil, what a blessing it is to have a chance to take a bold and positive step into the future, as the candidate being recommended to you by the Pastoral Nominating Committee will be presented this weekend.

Yesterday the notices for the “Meet and Greets” on Saturday were sent; the first is for deacons and elders and the second is for everyone.  The candidate’s personal and professional background information will be sent out on Friday, and the worship video emailed on Saturday afternoon.

Chris Davis reports his trip to Taiwan went well and he is settling in.

Some of you contacted me about another email scam targeted at some St. Andrew’s members this past week.  Someone created an email identity that can appear to be mine, but is not.  Know that I would never ask a member for gift cards or some urgent financial need.  Lastly, Sigurd Wathne died September 7 after a long illness.  Barbara Gaughen-Muller reports she is doing well.

Let’s all be in prayer for this pivotal weekend in St. Andrew’s journey.
