Posted by on Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 in News

 Floor hockey or your favourite board game!

Introducing a new group in our congregation: the Inbetweeners, a place where people of “in-between” age can find opportunities to belong and believe through fellowship and friendship, sharing and support. We will get together for some adult nights out during the year. Leave your children at home; come out and have some fun, meet your friends, make some new friends.

Our first official meeting will be on Saturday, October 13 at 7 pm until about nine. It will be a games night at the church. Bring your favourite card or board game and your favourite snack to share     (no nuts please).

High school students win Bill Struck Memorial Scholarship

Rebecca Paddock and Jessica Helwig are this year’s winners of the Bill Struck Memorial Scholarship.
Paddock, a student at GCI, was a captain on student council where she was involved in planning and running many school and community events. Along with being an outstanding student academically and a DECA member, Paddock played on the school’s field hockey and soccer teams, performed in the concert band and helped raise $40,000 for cancer research. Within the community, Paddock was a leader with the city’s summer playgrounds program and has been a volunteer in the community.
Helwig has been president of a number of groups at Southwood Secondary School, including the Student Music Activities Council, the Environmental Club and the Free the Children “We-School” Group. She has also found time to join three choirs, be on the Student Activities Council, Best Buddies Club, Grand River Environthon team, as well as a member of DECA. Outside school, she has worked as a lifeguard for the City of Cambridge, as well as assisting with a number of coffee house fundraisers.
This is the 13th year that the Bill Struck scholarship has been awarded to two students who have not only achieved success in school academics and athletics, but have also been involved in the community.
The scholarship was developed in memory of Coun. Bill Struck to honour his service to the community of Cambridge and his support of youth. Struck served 28 years on the Preston, Cambridge and Region of Waterloo councils until his death in 1997.
The Struck scholarship has been funded through City of Cambridge donations and fundraising initiatives by the Youth Advisory Council Cambridge. The scholarship was created in response to the many youth that are unable to access post-secondary education due to financial restraints.

Sunday, September 9th

Posted by on Wednesday, September 5th, 2012 in News

 Welcome back!  Well, it isn't officially the beginning of the church year, but it does feel like we are all getting back into our regular routines.

Please join us this Sunday as we have a special morning full of important events.  First please join us for The Sacrament of Holy Communion.  Our children in Grade 4 + will be participating in Communion with their families.

If you are involved in any ministry within the life of St. Andrew's we urge you to attend the service this Sunday.  It is Commissioning Sunday as well and this is a way that we can lift each other up in prayer as we serve the community of St. Andrew's and show others the love of Jesus.

Sunday School Rally Day!!!!  A favourite Sunday for our Students!  If you bring a filled out & signed registration form to Joni after church, in the hall, you will receive a surprise treat.  Will there be Jelly Bean count contests this year, or will it be bubble gum, or some other surprise?  You have to come to find out!  See you there.

Oh, and what better way top off our Sunday, then CAKE SUNDAY?  We will celebrate those who have birthdays in July, August and September!
