September 2017 Update:
To date we have raised $52,171.95 towards our goal of raising $190,000 by our 190th anniversary in April 2018. When we add the monies that were made available through our designated funds, we now have raised $153,171.95 – that reflects 80% progress towards our final goal. We are waiting to hear how our project may be impacted by the steeple fire but are confident that we will meet any goal set before us. Praise God, together we’ve almost reached our goal! Thanks again for your support.
Rev. John Borthwick is back from his break, and the steeple is being repaired; life is getting back to the normal Fall routine at St Andrew’s Guelph.
Bible Study recommences on either Sunday morning at 9 am with Rev. Bob Spencer or Thursday morning at 10 am with Rev. John.
Handbells meet on Wed at 7 pm and Choir meets on Thurs at 7 pm.
Some of you may have noticed the egg fridge at the Welcome Centre. The Oskam family is supplying fresh eggs from their farm for purchase at $3 a dozen (there is a locked money box on the fridge) and a portion of the sales made from the eggs is then directed back to St. Andrew’s.
Please do not confuse these eggs with the egg and cheese donations for Chalmers. Of course you can use the fridge to purchase eggs for Chalmers donations if you wish, but please make sure donations for Chalmers are placed in the fridge in the kitchen.
The Alsawal family was met at the airport this morning and no one could stop smiling. Father, mother, daughter and 5 sons are all looking forward to settling into their new home.
Starting today, Rev John is leaving the congregation until Monday Sept 4th. During this time, he will be completely unavailable; he will have no email access and the Office has been instructed not to contact him for any reason. This complete lack of contact is necessary to ensure that it can be a rejuvenating experience for Rev John, like a parental or medical leave. Rev John feels that we both will value the time spent apart and he trusts that the congregation won’t consider this time as a kind of limbo for our congregation, but instead as an opportunity for St. Andrew’s to pull together even stronger.
