St. Andrew’s Community Announcements: March 7, 2012

Dear Friends,

We had a very good service last Friday at which we had the privilege of hearing  Carolyn Schneider, one of our newer members and a professor at the Evangelical Theological Seminary, Cairo, preach.  The text and audio of her sermon can be found by clicking on the Media tab above and choosing “Sermons”, along with the audio of Mark Nygard’s address on Sunday Evening.

Work has continued, with a few hiccups, on the Guild Hall bathrooms, but we hope all will be completed when we arrive at church this Friday.

We seem to have only just begun Lent, but Easter will soon be upon us.  We will be having our Good Friday service at 10 am on Friday 6th April, followed by our Easter retreat to Anafora and then an Easter Sunday celebration back at St. Andrew’s on Sunday 8th.  The Cairo Christian Fellowship are also hosting an Easter Cantata, which will be sung in English, on the evening of Easter Sunday to which we are all warmly invited.  The exact time is yet to be confirmed.

Please pray for all those working in the StARS program at this time.  The continuing uncertainty in Egypt is having its toll on us all, but especially on those working with the most vulnerable.

Thanks, God bless,

Iain
