This Sunday August 15 is a special shared online service produced jointly by St. Andrew’s, Knox Presbyterian Church, Waterdown, and Family Church of Heritage Green. Worship will be led by Rev. John Read, Rev. Grant Vissers, and Rev. Alex Douglas and feature lots of music from all three churches. With our churches still worshipping online only it seemed like a great opportunity to work together as we get ready to return to in-person services.
Our Home Worship service for this week will premier on YouTube at 10:30am and be available any time afterward. A shortened version of the Family Worship time will be included as part of the main service. The Big God Project theme for the day is “God is in Control.” Resources for the day can be found here: https://standrews.ws/2021/08/14/family-worship-learning-august-15-2021/

- Summer Mission Focus: This summer the Mission Team is encouraging our St. Andrew’s Church Family to support the Kenora Fellowship Centre. The Centre is a ministry of the Presbyterian Church in Canada (PCC) that supports Indigenous people in the Kenora area, which was home to one of the two Residential Schools operated by the PCC after 1925. Ministries like the Kenora Fellowship Centre are part of our commitment to Reconciliation and repairing the harm done by the Residential Schools.
