THE BUILDING TEAM IS MAKING PROGRESS!
We have selected Mountain Construction, a General Contractor that specializes in church remodeling projects and will be working with them to finalize the phase one remodeling plan. The plan, which will be presented for approval to Session at the October meeting, will include a detailed list of work, a "not-to-exceed" cost estimate, and a construction schedule.
There will be opportunities for you to learn about the plan and provide input to this process. 
  • August 14th— Moment for Mission
  • August 28th—Aftertalk: Q&A on the Phase One Plan
  • Week of August 28th—Interior Design Meeting
The Building Team is also holding meetings with groups that use the building, to ensure their questions are answered and to understand how to minimize the impacts of the remodeling on their activities. If you have additional questions be sure to join in these discussions or contact  anyone on the Building Team: Patti Warden, Bob Seel, Frank Sickinger, Mike Dittmar, Dan Clawson, or Dan O’Rear.
HAMILTON!
Well the word got around they said this kid is insane man…
 
And the world’s gonna know your name, what’s your name man…
 
Alexander Hamilton,
my name is Alexander Hamilton,
and there’s a million things I haven’t done,
but just you wait, just you wait!   
     
 
Hamilton people (and those curious about this phenomenon), the wait is over! We are having a “Hamilton Night” at St. Andrew Wednesday, August 10 from 6:30-9:00pm.
SMALL GROUP OPPORTUNITY
Do you love to sing? How about eat? Do you want to spend meaningful time with others? A small group is being formed and hosted by Dan and Candis O'Rear.
We will meet to share our stories about music in our lives and learn to perform songs that we will share with the congregation during worship. The format will be three rehearsal meetings during which we will learn one song then share it in worship the following Sunday.

All ages and all levels of experience are invited. Do you have an instrument you haven't played in years? Bring it along and relearn what fun you can have. Love to sing but don't know how to read music? No problem. The group will help you learn a part. The purpose of this group is not to create a performance piece, it is to enjoy the process of making music in fellowship and sharing it with others. Interested?  Talk to Dan or Candis, or drop us an email at dore4mi@comcast.net.
