Hello Saint Andrew Families!

I wanted to share a few upcoming events with you, including a new family worship event that I hope you will read more about below! 
I recognize that there is a lot on our minds as we look to the fall and continue to find ourselves in a place far different from where we hoped we'd be. I feel like we are experiencing a bit of perpetual grief, mourning things lost throughout this time but also the cancellations and disappointments continuing to stack up for us and our children. It's exhausting, and overwhelming many times. I included a song that's been in my head just in case it happens to resonate with you in this time as well. 

I am grateful for the reminder that God is always at work. We don't have to carry the weight of the world alone. That we don't have to hide our fears or suffocate under the weight of them. He is more than able to bring redemption and peace to those in turmoil and pain. He is faithful even when the unknowns engulf us. He can be trusted to keep his promises.

Family Ministries is excited to share this worship opportunity for the whole family in an outdoor space where we hope everyone can feel comfortable. 
Join us on the back lawn for praise and worship music for the whole family based on favorite camp and VBS songs, interactive elements to participate in as a larger group and as a family, and the chance to create something to take home as a reminder of that morning.
Please bring a blanket or lawn chairs and your masks. We will provide the supplies! 
You can vote for your favorite past VBS song through this link! 
You can visit the FB Event page to RSVP and get more information! 
While we intended to provide Breakaway 2.0 at Pine Creek Campground, like so many other events this year we had to adjust. However this event that is intended to bring rising 6th, 7th and 8th grade youth together for fellowship and faith development is still something we want to offer those that feel comfortable attending. 
This event will be held outdoors on the church property with social distance and safety measures in place.
Please click this link for more information and to register your child. 
Registration is due by July 20th!  (Next Tuesday)
