Come and hear, all you who fear God,

Wednesday Bible Study: This online study meets from 1:00-2:00 pm to look at the Bible passage that will be explored the coming Sunday. You don't need to be a Bible scholar, just curious.

Election of Elders: What do Elders do at St. Andrews? Elders attend Session meetings where they participate in decision making related to the congregation. Elders have shared responsibilities in caring for the congregation, representing Session at a committee’s meetings or the congregation at Presbytery, participating in search committees, and welcoming the congregation to worship. Over the next three weeks church members will have the opporunity to 'endorse' people from our church membership list, whom they believe are gifted and called by God to serve in this role.

Baby Bottle Campaign: Hopewell Clinic and Pregnancy Centre launched a new clinic in 2021, and are set to launch new ultrasound services in the clinic this summer.

Check out the video to see the clinic. Help us reach our church goal of $2000 by donating here.
Art Work on Display in Lower Hall: Casey Macaulay, a Kamloops Forrester, is turning the devastation of last summer’s wildfires into something beautiful, tree ring art!
The Way of Forgiveness: This six-week study will explore the theme of forgiveness and reconciliation. What does forgiveness look like? How do we use this language faithfully? What does the bible offer about forgiveness and reconciliation? This study is being taught by the Rev. Dr. Roland de Vries through Presbyterian College and facilitated by Pastor Steve. We will watch the presentation and then engage in open discussion. This study will begin on Thursday May 19 from 7:00-8:30 pm on zoom and will last for 6 weeks.
Truth and Reconciliation: The Truth and Reconciliation Working Group is intending to start a Book Club in September. The booklist will be shared at a later date.
