ST. ANDREW’S RUMMAGE SALE THIS SATURDAY JUNE 11
Be sure to stop by St. Andrew’s this Saturday, June 11, from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. for the rummage sale. It is set up both indoors and outdoors with low prices on everything from adult and children’s clothes (we have many junior sizes), lawn care items, tools and children’s clothes/toys/books/gear to sports equipment, kitchenware and home decor. The ladies have been working hard setting up all the many items.
The annual rummage sale is sponsored by the St. Andrew’s Guild. The Guild donates all money raised to various local charities, which in 2022 include A Small Hand, Shenandoah Alliance for Shelter, Open Door Food Pantry, The Salvation Army, Response, Search and Shenandoah Community Health Clinic. Unsold items are donated to Search Thrift Store in Mt. Jackson.
There is no Eucharist on Wednesday, June 15. It resumes as usual on June 22.
GAP BACK TO SCHOOL DONATIONS
Even though has just begun, Shelia Helsley is hard at work planning to make sure the GAP kids are set for back to school. She’s collecting lunch box snacks and school supplies from now until July 17 to ensure each kid gets a bag of what they need this fall. If you’d like to donate items, please contact Shelia.

One of the greatest gifts we have to offer each other as a parish family is our prayers for ourselves, our families and our loved ones. You’re invited to sit with your parish directory and each day, lift up a section or page of names a day. Let’s continuously hold each other in prayer. Let us pray: God of grace and comfort, enfold our parish-members, family and friends with your mercy. Strengthen each one with a shield of faith and enable them to accept what is to come, heal them and bear their pain, keep them in peace, and fix their hearts on you through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.
Our prayer list can be found on our website. If you have folks you’d like added to the prayer list, please email their names to Melissa.
