UP-COMING PARISH EVENTS, DATES & NOTES. . .

TAKE ACTION THIS WEEK:

  • Cleaning out our storage space: Lots of stuff is available to go to a good home; some of it we probably need to keep. Stake your claim—either to use something in your ministry or adopt it yourself—by checking out the collection in the Parish Hall. TODAY, please!

  • Our food baskets need filling: Our children will be bringing the Food Baskets forward at the Offertory during All God’s Children service. Can you bring in a non-perishable food item to share? We’ll be taking these offerings to local pantries in River Vale, Norwood, Hillsdale and other local areas. Thank you.

  • Feeding God’s Hungry People: The congregations of District Nine (that’s us) are working together this lent to make a Lenten gift to the Center for Food Action, to feed hungry people in Bergen, Essex and Passaic counties. Each of our congregations will combine its donations for what we hope will be a $5,000 total of gifts. There is a collection box in the library for our contributions.

  • Spring Clean-up for our Buildings Grounds: Join us this coming Saturday, May 18, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm to continue the work of making St. Andrew’s shine. Jim McGlone will have a list of things that need doing, so bring your work gloves and lend a hand!

  • You are invited to a student recital. NEXT Saturday, May 18, at 3:30 pm, the piano students of our Music Director, Cathie Ruppi, will present their spring recital in our Sanctuary. Everyone is invited to attend and celebrate the accomplishments of these young musicians.

  • Another Confirmation celebration! NEXT Sunday, May 19, at 3:00 pm, Michael Biskup will be confirmed at Trinity & St. Philip’s Cathedral in Newark. Everyone is invited to attend. Michael joins Tyler Degnen, Desireé Fink and Tommy Fowler, who were confirmed on May 5.

Bring your garden clippers and favorite weed puller tools. Coffee, donuts, lemonade and sandwiches will be provided.

  • Celebrating our children and youth: On Sunday, June 2, we will celebrate all our wonderful young people. We’ll look at the Sunday School year and our younger children during and after the All God’s Children service. And we’ll celebrate our Confirmands at a special Coffee Hour after the 10:15 worship service.

  • VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL: Save the date – July 12 -13, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm.

ONGOING OPPORTUNITIES:

  • Sunday School is thriving! It’s time for Hearts Alive! —right after All God’s Children every first and third Sunday at 9:45 am in the Parish Hall.

  • Coffee hour needs you. Coffee, cookies and a bottle of juice make fellowship happen after worship. The sign-up sheet is in the library—Please add your name!! Note: We need hosts for both the 9:00 am and the 10:15 am services. Thank you!

  • You can sign up to give the altar flowers on Sunday morning in memory, or in thanksgiving, for someone or something close to your heart. The donation is $35.00, and the Altar Guild will order the flowers for you. If you prefer to bring and arrange your own flowers, a donation of just $5.00 helps offset the ongoing cost of altar candles, wafers, linens, etc.
