The United Church Women (UCW) is a group of hard working ladies of the church who strive to raise money to support the church. In St. Andrew’s we have three fundraisers each year — two that are very large and the third, although not as large, serves us well as a money raiser. We also handle receptions for small funerals of relatives of members and every five years we are responsible for our Anniversary Luncheon. Added to this, we have two Clothing Drives, one in the fall and the other in the spring. We meet once a month from September until May. There is no meeting in December or June. During the year we are all busy making articles to sell at our December Holly Tea. At present we have twelve active members.
The worship committee presently consists of the minister and the choir director-church musician but anyone is welcome to join us with their musical interests and vision. Basically, they select music for the Sunday services and plan various family services. This involves considering the church seasons, the type of service, the planned scripture readings and theme, in guiding the musical selections to integrate into worship.
Reverend Alice is working with Valeta Layne and many others to put together this year’s edition of the Easter drama, which will be presented on Palm Sunday in a special family service to be held downstairs in memorial hall. including actors, stagehands, set and costume workers and others, approximately 25-30 church members are involved.
We anticipate that the drama will once again surprise and delight, bringing us the Easter message of God’s love.[do action=”star-rating-block”/]
