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 $400 over the first month. We hope everyone’s ready for some delicious treats next week.
Have you heard about The Match Game?
The Match Game is the coolest new fundraiser here at Saint Andrew’s United Church and there are many different ways you can participate. The overall goal of the game is to raise money for Saint Andrew’s in a fun (and delicious) way.
Here are the ways you can participate:
1- You can bake a dessert (or anything you feel like bringing in) and bring it into Church on Sunday
2- You can buy a delicious treat that was generously donated after Church on Sunday. You never know how much it will cost you, you have to pick the price out of a box and that’s what you pay. Prices range from 2-10$.
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.

There’s a big Sunday coming up for Saint Andrew’s and for all our men and children. Sunday June 15th’s service will take place in the Memorial Hall and will mark the closing of Sunday School for the summer. There will also be a breakfast before the service for the men and their families, so bring a friend with you to Church!
In the context of the United Church, a Trustee is an individual who, along with the other members of the Board of Trustees for a congregation, holds all of the property of that congregation for the use and benefit of the congregation as part of the United Church. The Boad of Trustees exercise legal ownership of all church property subject to the guidance of the congregation through the Official Board, and subject to the regulations of the United Church of Canada. At St. Andrew’s United Church the Trustees are Rev. K. Alice McAlpine, Erich Bauer, Chester Ross, Ken Semper, and Lou Sarka.

St. Andrew’s has been “a burp” lately with infant baptisms. Recently we have welcomed the families of Riley Margaret Lockwood, Tenley Jean Mallin, Jager James Bowmer, and Ivy Grace Leclair. We look forward to welcoming two more infants this coming Sunday. May God bless these families. We look forward to getting to know them better.[do action=”star-rating-block”/]
The Principle of the Path, by Andy Stanley is a wonderful read. Based upon biblical principles, and drawing from his own experiences as well as his life as a pastor, Andy Stanley lays out and guides the reader through a simple concept that has great application for our lives. The principle of the pathway is that direction, rather than intention determines our destination.
Leading from this simple concept, and guiding us through it’s application to our relationships, our finances, and other parts of our lives, he demonstrates how critical it is for us to ask a basic question. “Is this choice going to bring me closer to my goal (destination), or not.” Every goal requires moving from where we are towards somewhere or something.
Every action takes us close to or further from that goal. It’s difficult to do the book justice, but it is relatively short and easy read, and very insightful. – Recommended by Craig McAlpine
The Official Board is the umbrella committee under which the other church committees operate. Only those serving on committees or their representatives are members of the Official Board. When major decisions need to be made, e.g. budget, building repairs, etc., an Official Board meeting is called. Sometimes the Board makes the decision needed and sometimes it brings a suggestion to a congregational meeting for discussion/approval.
