Fundscrip News

Big news for all our Fundscrip subscribers, and also for those of you who should be participating. Fundscrip has recently added Wal-Mart to the list of retailers it distributes gift cards from. So you can now order Wal-Mart gift cards from Nancy Christie on Sunday or Mondays before 9:00 am, and she’ll get you the gift cards for the following Sunday. This simple action gives money to Saint Andrew’s by your participation. The Wal-Mart gift cards give 2% to the Church.

If you’re interested in the monthly specials at Fundscrip, where retailers increase their percentage by a certain amount in a given month, click here to go to the Fundscrip website, or there will be a post about it soon.


First Sermon Posted to the Website! :)

Today, we’ve officially posted our first sermon to the website. You can find it in the media section under bulletins and sermons. It was written by Keith Motton and we invite you all to take a look so you won’t have missed what Keith put so much effort into preparing. Hopefully we get a lot of good response and we can continue to post more sermons in the future.

The members of this committee are:

  • Reverend Alice McAlpine
  • Craig McAlpine
  • Doreen Gilbert
  • Audrey Bauer
  • Bruce Ryan
  • Julie Desrochers
  • Elizabeth Bergeron
  • Jonathan Bergeron

In the event you have any questions about what the committee is working on or if you would like information from the update meeting, please contact one of the committee members listed above.

Also, here’s what people are working on over the summer, if you would like to help with some of these tasks, please contact the committee member.

Elizabeth Bergeron is continuing to work on the website and attempting to keep it up to date and relevant.

Doreen Gilbert (with help from Audrey Bauer) is contacting several places around the area, trying to get some of our children’s pictures hung up on their walls; this is to show how St. Andrew’s cares about the community.

Jonathan Bergeron will be organizing sports and some fun activities for the summer.

Julie and Reverend Alice will be coming up with concrete plans for some fundraisers to organize for the next year.

Have a great summer!

Wrapping Up For The Summer

This Sunday is going to be petty eventful at St Andrew’s. The Sunday School, the choir and the Match Game are finishing for the summer, it’s Father’s Day, and of course for Father’s Day there is a special breakfast (Bring your dad and your family!). Although some of our activities will be taking a break during the summer, we hope that you will come out and join us for worship. Rev. Alice will be taking her summer vacation shortly and the schedule of which groups will be organizing the services will be posted soon. Have a great summer and don’t forget to check the website for news and updates throughout the summer!

Delicious Events Coming Soon!

We hope everyone’s excited for the upcoming Special Events at Saint Andrew’s. This Sunday, you can come out with your family and friends for breakfast before our Father’s Day service and the closing of Sunday School. Reverend Alice is looking for volunteers to help with the breakfast, so contact Reverend Alice if you’d like to help out.

After that, the Strawberry Social is quickly approaching! This delicious and entertaining event is put on by the UCW, so you can purchase your tickets from a UCW member or from the Church office.

We hope to see you at both events for conversation and cuisine!

Match game Success!

This Sunday’s Match Game brought the greatest success we’ve seen with the Match Game yet. The brand new Saint Andrew’s fundraiser raised $166 just in this week! That’s incredible, thanks so much to everyone who participated. Thus far, the Match Game has raised over $400 over the first month. We hope everyone’s ready for some delicious treats next week.

The Match Game

Have you heard about The Match Game?

The Match Game is the coolest new fundraiser here at Saint Andrew’s United Church and there are many different ways you can participate. The overall goal of the game is to raise money for Saint Andrew’s in a fun (and delicious) way.

Here are the ways you can participate:

1- You can bake a dessert (or anything you feel like bringing in) and bring it into Church on Sunday

2- You can buy a delicious treat that was generously donated after Church on Sunday. You never know how much it will cost you, you have to pick the price out of a box and that’s what you pay. Prices range from 2-10$.

3-You can match. The person matching for a given week donates the equivalent of all the proceeds raised by the Match Game in that week and will receive a tax receipt for their donation.

The Match Game has had a couple of successful weeks thus far, and everybody continues to look forward to the yummy things this week, thanks to everyone who has been participating in our delicious fundraiser.
