St. Andrew’s Community Announcements: March 1, 2012

Dear Friends,

Happy St. David’s Day to any Welsh people out there!

We had an excellent pancake lunch on our “Shrove Friday” last week.  Quite a few new people came along and there were plenty of pancakes to go round!

Work has started on the church bathrooms in the Guild Hall – causing some disruption to StARS as the girls are having to use the teachers’ bathroom upstairs!  However, it should all be over in a few days and we will have new shiny toilets with hot water!!! The work is being paid for with a grant from the Vogalaar fund and the rest of the cost is being covered by the Cairo Christian Fellowship.  Thanks to them for their generous assistance in this!

We are now in the season of lent and Carolyn Schneider, one of our newer members and a professor at the Evangelical Theological Seminary, Cairo, will be preaching this Friday.  Text and audio of some sermons is now available on this website, click on “media” and then “sermons”.    This week we also had the first meeting of the new Church Council: new members Emmanuel Omoniyi  and Pamela Chase were welcomed to our meeting.

This Friday is the last opportunity to sign up for the Easter Anafora Retreat, so make sure you do so if you would like to join us!  You also need to indicate if you would prefer a single or shared room.

Hope you have a good week,

God bless,
