Don’t forget the Amazing Grace is this Sunday for the Sunday school, you’re allowed to BYOB (Bring Your Own Bible) but nothing else. You’ll need your running shoes and your game faces. Aren’t participating? Don’t worry! You’ll get to enjoy the game soon enough because Elizabeth will be making a video out of the recordings her hardworking camera people will get on Sunday. See you soon!
That’s right! There were ponies on the front lawn of the Church! Last Sunday, the Saint Andrew’s Sunday School invited Willdon stables in Mercier to bring ponies for after Church. Lots of our little cowboys, cowgirls and even Mr. Bauer, (if you don’t believe me I’ve included pictures so you know it’s true) braved the cold to get their chance (or multiple chances) to ride a pony. It was lots of fun, and if you didn’t have a chance to join us we missed you! Please enjoy these pictures of a fun day.

As if we don’t have enough to be excited for this month, what with the Amazing Grace and Thanksgiving coming up, but now we have even more exciting news! Sunday, October 19th, it is a family Sumday at Saint Andrew’s it’s the soup luncheon and there will be ponies weather permitting. So bring a canned good or a donation for the Christmas baskets to ride a pony! There will be great food and it’s for a great cause, so don’t miss out on your chance for great fun. We hope to see you all there!
Have you visited our groups section lately? While there are some lovely descriptions of all our wonderful groups here at Saint Andrew’s, the pictures are of people we don’t know. If you would like your group to be featured on the website with a fresh new image, all you have to do is get everyone together, take a picture, and give it to Elizabeth Bergeron. If you want, you can even take a few, and make the website a better reflection of the Saint Andrew’s community.
Of course, please make sure that anyone in any picture is alright with their picture being on the website, since privacy is our top priority.
Thanks so much everyone, let’s give our groups section some fresh new faces!

The Sunday School is putting together an awesome new activity this month. Sunday, October 26th, members of the Saint Andrew’s Sunday School are invited to participate in an Amazing Race inspired event where teams will race in and around the Church. The Race is making teams of children, with members of the Senior and Junior class joining forces to race in an epic exploration of their faith and their Church. The Race will take place on Sunday, October 26th during Church. If you’re willing to help or would like to participate in the activity, please notify Elizabeth Bergeron. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
