Save the Date- Saturday, February 17, 2018 from 9am-Noon.
This will be church-wide gathering to plan our mission and outreach in 2018. A sitter will be available for the children. It is very important for us, as a church family, to reach out to our community and to the world. In the past, we have supported the work of the missionaries in Papua New Guinea, the Mission Stitchers have supported several different ministries, we have given personal hygiene products to the missionaries at Friend Ships, we have supplied magazines to local emergency room waiting rooms, we have conducted outreaches to McNeese students and faculty, we have collected food for Oak Park Food Pantry, and we have reached out to Potter's House and Evergreen Ministries. Are these missions that we plan to continue to support? Are there other local missions with which we can become actively involved?
It is important that everyone comes February 17 to be a part of this discussion.

The Lenten Cross Project
St. Andrew Presbyterian members will be asked to participate in The Lenten Cross Project. Church members make crosses and learn about their origins.
The purpose of the project is to decorate our sanctuary for the Lenten season, provide education to our congregation about the Cross and its historical significance and meaning down through the ages, to provide an outlet for creative expression by those who participate, and to provide a focus for prayer and meditation on the meaning of the cross in a very personal way.
The cross design is both meaningful and artistic. Information is on the bulletin board by the kitchen. Please check out the cross designs and pick one to make. The design can be made of just about anything that will allow it to hang on the wall. Imagination is encouraged. Some of the possible materials to use include anything in the garden, fabric, pebbles, bird seed, old jewelry, bottle caps, wire, etc. Sizes can be from 8” X 10” to 20” X 24”. Background that the cross attaches to must be able to hold the cross and be able to be mounted on the wall. Handbooks will be printed for each cross chosen to describe what it means and why you used the materials you did. Mary Lou is obtaining some books that will be available in the office, to help research your cross.
Crosses can be turned in until Palm Sunday. Contact Mary Lou Burke for any questions
