THANKSGIVING FOR THE LIFE OF HELENE KRASKO
Our beloved Helene Krasko has died. She passed away peacefully, after celebrating her 90th birthday. For 31 years Helene brought her gifts to St. Andrew, particularly as the Bell Choir director. A memorial celebration has been scheduled for Saturday, February 18th, 11:00AM at St. Andrew. More information is to come, but, as you can imagine, we are hoping to assemble a bell choir to ring to the skies. Work is also underway for a celebration, complete with a jazz band following the service. Please set a few hours aside on the 18th to be a part, and keep an eye out for coming invitations.
AFTERTALK

Are you wondering about how to negotiate the new political reality? Are you feeling uncertain about how to move forward? The Sermon on the Mount is "front-and-center" in Sunday's readings. Let's talk about how the beatitudes might give us firm footing for living intentionally and lovingly and effectively from day-to-day. Join us for Aftertalk, following worship. Read more here...

GROUNDHOG DAY

OK, campers, rise and shine! Join us this coming Tuesday, January 31, for the first of what we hope will be many St. Andrew Film Nights. As we ease carefully into February, watching for black ice and waiting for spring training (well, just spring would be fine), what better way to mark the month than by watching what Jonah Goldberg referred to as, “…what many believe is the best cinematic moral allegory popular culture has produced in decades.”

In other words, we’re watching Groundhog Day, the 1993 comedy starring Bill Murray and directed by the late Harold Ramis. Two days before Punxsutawney Phil looks around for his shadow, we’ll celebrate with this now-classic fantasy of a bitter, arrogant, and just generally unpleasant man who finds himself repeating the same day, every day. It’s been referred to as a modern Pilgrim’s Progress, and has been cited often by theologians of many faiths as inspirational and enlightening. And hey: It’s pretty funny, too.

SCHOLARSHIPS FOR COLLEGE OR VOCATIONAL TRAINING

One of the great joys of St. Andrew is its scholarship program – both the Seminary Scholarship Program and the College Scholarship program.  For the College Scholarship Program, the Newell Scholarship Fund and the Thomas Scholarship Fund helps members and friends of St. Andrew who need financial assistance for undergraduate college education or vocational training.  The objective of the college program is to provide at least a $500 scholarship each year to a qualified student(s) who is graduating from high school and is seeking a first degree, either in a college undergraduate program or a vocational school like RTC.  College or vocation school students are welcome to apply for each year of their study until they graduate.  Eligibility requirements for the scholarships include:

  • Applicant or applicant’s family member must be an active participant in worship or other activities of St. Andrew
  • Qualified to enroll in an accredited college, university or vocational school
  • Needs financial assistance in order to pursue studies
