“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth
Worship the Lord with gladness, Come into his presence with singing
Know that the lord is God, it is he that made us, not we ourselves
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise
Give thanks to God and bless God’s name
For the Lord is good, God’s steadfast love endures forever,
and God’s faithfulness to all generations.”
Celebrate God’s faithfulness! Celebrate together; be joyful together, because God is with us! We at St. Andrew’s have a lot to celebrate. Over this past year we have seen evidence of God moving in our midst in worship and work, in faith and faithfulness, in God’s provision as we encounter challenges and, in God’s grace, as we continue to reach out in ministry and mission. This year has also been one of transitions and changes. The 2016 annual report bears witness to God’s faithfulness to us and to our response as we walk in faith as individuals and as a congregation.
The financial statements bear witness to the faithfulness of the congregation as we as a group continued to offer back to God a portion of what we have received. This year has been a difficult one with the financial downturn, yet by God’s grace we were able to cover the costs and end the year in good shape.
Look forward to seeing where God is leading us, praying that we will continue our history of faithful response to God’s grace.
