Hello St Andrews’
I am announcing our spring 2018 order window for meat pies and soups. Order forms will be available from April 3rd until April 21, 2018 for the delicious offerings you have come to know.
I thank you for your continued support of this program that, is now in its 3rd year and has raised in excess of $3,360 since 2016. 100% of these monies have been used in our quest to achieve sustainable financing.
Session opened many continuing missions in 2015-2016 to offset expenses that were threatening our continued operation. Over a few years we have been blessed buy the efforts of many opening “giving doors of opportunity” and endowments that have created change. In addition, subtle changes in the staffing and operations has also been instrumental to more changes. You should know, that last year’s fiscal results saw the deficit for 2017 was reduced to almost zero. A marked change that is welcome and quite remarkable compared to many churches.
Session was challenged to make changes and I think that the results speak for themselves. The path forward has been difficult, but with God’s providence, some astute decisions and the support of the congregation we are in a much better place than one would expect in 2018. Thank you for the support.
