Stewardship Commitment Celebration

Stewardship is about discipleship! It is a celebration of God's blessings, recognizing God as the creator and giver of all that we have and are, and then serving Him as stewards of his gifts through our time, talent, and treasures.
 
Join us for fellowship and treats, commitment and mission and ministry, and looking forward together! This Stewardship Commitment Celebration is for everyone in the congregation! (Please note that there are no youth education classes.) 
The Executive Directors of
     ~ Congregations for the Homeless (David Bowling),

     ~ LifeWire (Rachel Krinsky), and
     ~ The Sophia Way (Angela Murray)
will speak, bringing word of how Saint Andrew’s impacts their mission around housing security.

Doomsday: Are You Ready 
Presenter: Pastor Timothy Weber
301/Fellowship Hall North
 Even non-Christians coming into my office are wondering out loud--“Are these the end times?” Sandwiched between the global crises, natural disasters, hackers hacking personal information, and one’s own mortal fragility...we sit, we stand, we sleep, we live our ordinary days, with ordinary breaths...at least for the moment, a moment that might end long before we are ready. Join Dr. Timothy Weber, Shared-Time Pastor at Saint Andrew’s, for this uplifting conversation!

Hands and Heart 
301/Fellowship Hall North
Join us for hands-on discipleship as we put our hands and hearts to work for our local and global community. We will have three projects set up to choose from. We will create Fleece Tie Blankets to be sent around the globe to areas of need through Lutheran World Relief. We will also find the opportunity to create paracord bracelets that can be life-saving to our first responders and soldiers. We can put our stamping skills to use by creating cards that will be sent to the Ronald McDonald House in Seattle, a non-profit organization that provides housing for families with children receiving care at Seattle Children's Hospital.
