St. Andrew’s Community Announcements: January 26, 2012

Dear Friends,

This post is a little later than usual as we were waiting to see the outcome of the 25th January commemorations.  Happily, everything went of peacefully with hundreds of thousands of people packing Tahrir Square supporting the goals of the revolution.  Marches from Ramsis Square, Ain Shams University and Abbasaya passed by the church but all remained calm.  Worship will therefore continue as normal this weekend.

Last Friday Mark Nygard preached and celebrated communion and our Bible Study resumed following the service.  Our skype prayer meeting on Tuesday included Sonya in Haiti and Danna in Chicago as well as five people in Cairo.

The Annual General Meeting is tomorrow, Friday 27th January, when the new Church Council and two members of the new StARS Board will be elected.  Please pray that we all make wise decisions as we elect those who will lead us this year.

Have a good week, God bless,
