Sermon Series Continues this Sunday, August 7th

What is liturgy and why is it important in our faith? This series will explore why we do what we do each Sunday in worship. We will reflect together on how liturgy connects with and shapes our daily lives.

It’s Time to Expand the Circle

A handful of vounteers have been leading the efforts to assist the Safi family in their new American life, and we are now ready to expand the circle of support. We are asking for drivers to help with things like medical appointments, periodic collections of food, school runs, minor home improvements, etc. If the Spirit moves you to join “Team Safi” and connect further with this beautiful family while assisting with some of the roles described, please reach out to any of us listed below.

What Is the Burgundy Bag Ministry?

To fulfill our mission of feeding the hungry, the Outreach Committee supports an ongoing collection of canned goods and nonperishable food items. Please help yourself to a burgundy reusable grocery bag on Sunday morning and bring it back with items to be donated. You may also pick up and drop off bags in the Chapel hallway. Weekly distribution to One Step Further Food Pantry, our partner agency, is year-round. Demand for donations increases in the summer months when school nutrition programs are not in full operation. Thank you for remembering to “Bring a Bag and Take a Bag” each week. 

Children, Youth, and Families

There is a LOT happening for our families of children and youth. Please skip over to the Children & Youth pages to learn more!

Sing in the Choir this Summer!

During the summer months, all interested adults and teenagers are invited to sing with the Chancel Choir in worship. We meet at 9:00 on Sunday mornings, and we hope to fill the chancel seats with a joyful summer choir! For more information, contact Ann Doyle at ann.doyle1313@gmail.com

Join Us on Wednesdays for Hearing the Gospel

The summer season of our weekly Bible Study offering, Hearing the Gospel, has begun. Join us on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. in the Parish Hall. Our sessions consist of reading the Gospel for the coming Sunday, followed by discussion of its meaning in Jesus’ time and how it applies to our lives today. No preparation is required, and all members of the Parish and friends are welcome. Sessions last about an hour and close with Noonday Prayer. Facilitators for the summer will be Lisa Garrett at lisadgarrett@outlook.com and Bill Hill at hillgolf@bellsouth.net.

The Streaming Ministry is Looking for Volunteers

Our Sunday morning livestream has become an important ministry in our life together and keeps our community connected in worship. If you’re interested in becoming part of our livestream team for the summer (or longer!) please contact Robin Hardman at IT@standrewsgso.org! Volunteers will receive training in the operation of the broadcast system and will work in conjunction with existing volunteers to help broadcast our services online.

The Corner Market

Worldwide, outdoor markets have flourished during the pandemic. That has certainly been the case here in Greensboro. Since moving to our parking lot, the Corner Market has welcomed new vendors and customers. The relocation could not have gone better, and the market is providing a connection point that’s open to everyone in our community: a connection that is so vital for many of us during this time—and all the time.

One Step Further Food Pantry

This food pantry, started at St. Andrew’s and now housed at First Christian Church across the street from us, needs volunteers for a variety of tasks including deliveries and making phone calls (which can be done from home). If you can help, please contact the director, Susan Cox, at scox@onestepfurther.com.
