Summer Childcare & Nursery

All ages are welcome to join us for stories, crafts and snacks in the Morning Glories room during the 10:00 am service, for childcare. Parents, please pick up your children for communion or at any time through the conclusion of the service. Summer nursery is provided in the Morning Glories classroom during the 10:00 am service.

Mini Organ Recital

The congregation is invited to stay and enjoy a 20-minute mini-recital at the Postlude, presented today as a farewell by Cecilia Man. Cecilia and her family are moving to the East Coast this week. They wish to express their good wishes and fond farewell to the parish and have provided the refreshments for the coffee hour today.

History Docent Tour

There is a History Docent Tour after both services today, featuring the Gillespie and Kingsley windows. Meet by the windows after the service.

CHANGE OF DATE

The next "Sacred Texts of the World" has been rescheduled for Tuesday, September 5 from 10:00 - 11:30 am in the Lounge and will cover the topic "Introduction to Islam."

The Adventures of FLAT JESUS!

Flat Jesus, inspired by the Flat Stanley literacy project, reminds us to keep Christ at the center of our lives even, or especially, when we are far from our church home.

This summer, take Jesus along for the adventure: take Flat Jesus on vacation, camp, out to dinner, the park, the zoo, to exotic locations, sporting events, or all your favorite local sites - wherever you and your family go!

Document your adventures: Print out your very own Flat Jesus HERE or pick one up in the Chapel Lobby to color and cut out. Be sure to take photos of Flat Jesus and everything you do together! Share them with your St. Andrew’s family: email your photos to Carol at caferguson@standrewsaa.org so they can be displayed. Submitted photos will be posted in the lobby so that everyone can see what a fun-filled summer Flat Jesus had with everyone at St. Andrew’s!

This project is fun for ALL AGES!

Music Notes

Hymn 51: We the Lord's People

The initial phrases of each verse in this hymn are a kind of phrase-acrostic: put together, they complete a saying used in the Church of England in the 1960's and 70's to teach what liturgy is: "the Lord's people in the Lord's house on the Lord's Day for the Lord's service." The verses explore each of those concepts in surprising depth for such a short hymn. Richard Dirksen (1921-2003) wrote this haunting tune for this text in 1983. "Decatur Place" is a street in Washington, D.C. near the National Cathedral, where Dr. Dirksen served from 1942 to 1988 as organist, choirmaster, and Precentor. --Donna Wessel Walker
