A ,message from Rev. Bruce
THE CROSS, JULY 2021
Dear Family and friends of St. Andrew's,
In this edition of the Cross, I wanted to follow up with a reminder of the Parish Picnic and Pot Luck at the Rectory on Saturday July 10th beginning at 2 pm. A notification has been sent out previously which included a sign-up sheet. There are hard copies posted in the Hall and Sanctuary. I have invited members of groups who use the Church during the week so we may meet each other and mingle. I have started to work with the Boy Scout Leaders, and have had meetings with the principals of the Middle School and Lincoln Elementary to see how we may more effectively bridge our After School Enhancement Program with them. Both Principals have been invited to the picnic as well as the Regional Boy Scout Facilitator.
We have before us the long green season of Ordinary Time also known as Pentecost in the Prayer Book in which we live out the Great Commission of Jesus to spread the Good News to every Nation. We do this in the manner of life we lead though our words and actions. Our Parish has lived this out in finding new ways to proclaim the Gospel through our outreach and feeding those less fortunate. Let us Pray and continue to strive to follow His Commission.
I would like to present over the next weeks a study group on the Book of Common Prayer. If you are interested, please let me know. I would like it to be over Zoom so that those who may not do it live may follow it later. Let me know if you would be interested.
Thank you for your time and consideration to these matters,
Rev. David Bruce, Priest-in-Charge.
