This morning was one of those mornings where I wish I could have taken a couple of pictures during worship.  (I know that’s kind of inappropriate, but it was one of those mornings!)
First, it was Commissioning Sunday, the time of year when we lift all of our ministry workers and volunteers up in prayer.  And there are many, many people involved in all kinds of ministries in our church.  Thank you to each and every one of you.  You are all a blessing to St. Andrew’s Hespeler and the community.
Secondly, the Sunday School children taught the congregation all about having a Feast.  We have a Feast in Children & Worship when we have Communion Sundays.  So instead of having Communion this morning we had a Feast.  It was so moving and sweet to see all of the Sunday School children serve the Feast to everyone who had gathered in a circle at the outside edges of our sanctuary.  Thank you children for leading us in this special Feast.
And thirdly, this morning we Launched Place of New Hope & Hope Clothing. The festivities were made fun by Hope Clothing who treated us to a small fashion show highlighting some of the clothing articles found at Hope Clothing.  Thank you to the staff of Hope Clothing and the models!  And thank you to the Fellowship Committee for providing us with some tasty cakes for Cake Sunday, celebrating July, August & September birthdays and Hope Clothing!
Everyone loves Cake Sunday!
Fellowship time, looks like a good story!

The audience for the Fashion show is building!
