Christmas Hampers:  As in past years, St. Andrew’s is collecting items for 2 medium sized Christmas Hampers for the Salvation Army.  At each door there is a list of items required for the one hamper on that side. Please check the item(s) you would like to donate and sign your name. If you have chosen perishable items, please wait until December 16th to deliver them to the church. The Hampers will be delivered to the Salvation Army on December 16th. Blessings.

Access to Prayer Chain:  To share prayer requests, please call Pastor George at 705-676-5887.

Bethlehem Walk Today: You are invited to attend this year’s Bethlehem Walk at Thornloe Crossroads Baptist Church (corner of highways 11 & 562) to witness the re-telling of THE CHRISTMAS STORY-FROM the beginning  on DECEMBER 8 from 5 TO 7:00 p.m.  Dress warmly.  Please bring a canned good for the area food banks.

Ladies Group:   Thanks to our very generous congregation, for donations and hands on assistance at the bazaar, we have raised $1746.40. Along with the many missions we have been contributing to, we are able to put $2500 into St. Andrew’s general budget. Praise God. To all the ladies who usually join together on Mondays at noon, we are taking a short break. Regularly scheduled luncheons will resume January 6th with our first business meeting for 2020. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

Days for Girls:  The ladies group intends to continue with this very important mission.  If you would like to support this mission, you can do so with donations of hotel sized soap, dark coloured facecloths and of course cash donations for the purchase of fabric and other supplies needed to complete more kits.  The donation basket is currently being kept in the church hall.  As always, thank you and God Bless all who support this mission with their love and prayers.

Food Bank:  In December we are encouraged to donate instant coffee.

Christmas Eve:  There will be a Candlelight Service at 7 p.m on Tues. Dec. 24th.  As in the past we welcome any special music or help with the readings for the Eve service.  If you would like to sing a song or participate in any of the readings please see Pastor George or Autumn Gambles.

Phone List Update:  On the table by the north side exit you will find a church family list that we would like to have updated with e-mail addresses. This will assist us in staying better connected as a church.
