St. Andrew Lutheran Church Canyon Lake Spring Branch Bulverde New Braunfels



The 5:00 Come As You Are Sunday service is on hiatus for the Summer

Meet our Missionaries July 15!
Meet our missionaries from Australia Rev. Henry Martinez and Rev. Kim Crawford. They will be sharing with us during the 9 AM Adult Bible Study time Sunday, July 15 and also giving both the children’s sermon and the regular sermon. We will begin an ongoing relationship called “Missionary Sponsorship” with this couple.
This family lives in Adelaide Australia with their two sons, Silas and Ezra.
We will need volunteers to help host them when they arrive.

This summer’s VBS is a wrap! Thank you VBS coordinator Lesley and all the volunteers for a fun and successful VBS! We can't wait until next year.

Mission Trip: Honduras, October 27-November 3
In case you were thinking about being a part of this trip and thought it had passed you by, I’ve heard that a few more team members could still be included if you act right away. These trips really can be life-changing – between the global perspective of travel and the challenge of living out your faith in Christ in new ways, combined with the team experience and chances to make new relationships with people you would never otherwise meet, the opportunities for transformation are many. If you want to explore a calling to participate, talk to me right away, or contact Commission Expeditions directly.

St. Andrew 50th anniversry

Our 50th anniversary theme:
“We Remember, We Celebrate, We Believe.”

Plans are coming together for a wonderful celebration of 50 years of ministry together at St. Andrew in the fall of 2018. It is time to mark your calendars! Every Sunday from 9/9 through 11/11 will have some special aspects to highlight our history or different aspects of who we have become as a congregation. The last three Sundays will culminate the celebration.
It's time to think about how you might be involved... planning, sponsoring, or volunteering. Sponsoring items financially is a great way to make this celebrate happen if you don't have the skills or time to plan or volunteer. Please see the list here.

Crafters
Anyone who enjoys doing crafts is invited to join the Crafters on Thursdays at 9:30 am in the Craft room (right off the Fellowship hallway). Come and bring some new ideas or teach us something new. It is a great time of fellowship and fun.

Piecemakers Wednesdays—9 am
Come join the fellowship that we enjoy as we “piece” together all kinds of fabrics to make quilts for Lutheran
World Relief. Love is at the center of the process of making, donating, shipping and distributing LWR Mission Quilts. Buy a roll of batting for $80 and receive a quilt free. The quilt is on display in the fellowship hall on the quilt rack. Come have a look and help support this ministry.
