Please mark your calendars. Sunday, January 21, the Annual Meeting will be held within the Holy Eucharist Rite II service. The Service will begin at 9:30 am. New Vestry members, delegates to Diocesan Convention and representatives to the North Central Mission Area Council will be elected. All are encouraged to attend and be a part of the decisions which enable St. Andrew’s to live into her mission of “Bringing Christ to the World and The World to Christ.”
St. Andrew’s will welcome The Rt. Rev. Arthur Williams, Jr., Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of Ohio, Sunday, January 28, 2018. There will be one service at 10:30 am. Bishop Williams will preach and preside in worship and Confirm, Receive or acknowledge the Reaffirmation of Faith of those presenting themselves for those rites.
We are once again offering basic shelter to the homeless in Elyria. We are working with First United Methodist Church next door and First United Presbyterian, across from the Chronicle Telegram. Our goal is to offer overnight accommodations on especially cold nights, (20 degrees or below, including wind chill). Guests must arrive between 7-8 pm and depart by 6 am. Please click here for the calendar with locations.
The Diocese of Ohio is encouraging its congregations to take advantage of a new digital service called Flocknote. There is no cost to us at this time and the service will help parishioners stay connected to St. Andrew’s as well as the diocese. This is not mandatory for us or for you, but is another way for us all to stay connected.
The service helps our “flock” receive “notes” to keep them informed and/or reminded of events, special activities, meetings and more. The notes are delivered via text and email, but only to those who want to receive the notes. For example, if you want to be reminded to help with Community Meals, but you don’t always remember the date St. Andrew’s serves, you can receive specific reminders for this ministry. If you want a reminder about choir practice, you can receive these reminders as well. However, if you do not want reminders about meals or choir, but really need a reminder about the next time you’re needed as an usher, you can receive these reminders.
There’s no account, user name, password or app to download. More information on how to sign up is coming soon.
