St. Andrews has begun a monthly donation mission for BACN. We are collecting non-food items and each month there will be a box in the Gathering Space to collect donations. There will be different items each month and this month we are collecting toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss for adults and children. Thank you for helping to make this a successful and much needed mission for BACN.
The “House Blessing” for the latest Habitat for Humanity of Benzie County build will take place June 30th at 2 p.m. This newly completed home is located at 6300 Sunset Drive in Lake Ann and is now home to a young couple and their daughter. Please come and celebrate this special occasion!
In February, 48 members of the congregation completed the Peace and Justice Ministry team survey, designed to support plans in 2013 for discussion, reading, and action. Since its establishment, with Session endorsement in June, 2011, the Peace and Justice Ministry team has sought to explore God’s desire for Justice, Christ’s call to peacemaking, and the Holy Spirit’s reconciling work among us. They have sought to understand friction points in society through discussion, reading, and interaction with informed persons, including those directly affected. Thanks to the members of the congregation who
responded. The survey results are attached for the congregation to review.
