Community Announcements, June 15th

The 2nd Century Fund is Underway!
We are blessed at St. Andrew’s with a beautiful worship space that was built over hundred years ago. As we enter into St. Andrew’s second century, we are launching an appeal called the 2nd Century Fund, which will pay for building repairs and improvements. We hope that as we seek to be good stewards of what we have inherited, we might ensure that this place continues to share God’s love in Cairo for another hundred years! Inside Friday bulletins, you will find envelops in which you can place any special donations for the 2nd Century appeal. If you are interested in details about improvement plans, please see Iain Baxter or Anne Shalaby.

Final Friday Bible Study of Summer, This Friday at 11:45
Join us this Friday for Bible study after fellowship in the conference room. We will once again be studying the passages from the Friday’s worship. This will be the final Bible study for these summer months. Bible study will restart this coming Fall.

St. Andrew’s Evening Prayer Will be on Hiatus During the Summer
We will not be holding Sunday evening services for the remainder of the summer. Thanks to all of those who participated in this special time of worship and prayer.

Summer Language Course to Be Offered By STARS
St. Andrew’s Refugee Services is excited to present a new Egyptian Arabic course specifically designed for foreigners living in Cairo. There will be two courses, one for intermediate and one for pre-intermediate, which  will be taught by highly qualified and experienced teachers and will be offered two evenings per week from  6:30—8:30pm.  All profits from this course will go directly to StARS to support essential educational, legal and psychosocial services for refugees. The cost of this 10-week course is LE1000.00 and it will begin during the week of June 19th.  A placement test will be given to all those interested in participating.
