Join Us for Worship Sunday Morning at 10
All are invited to worship this morning at 10. If you’re new or just checking us out, please fill out our paper or digital Visitor Card so we’ll know you’re among us. We’re glad you’re here!
Nursery care is available during worship. We offer children’s activity bags and weekly handouts to keep little hearts and hands engaged. There will be no separate Children’s Ministry time this Sunday.

Abundant Life Volunteers Needed
We have an urgent need for your help with this important ministry. On Monday, July 25 neither of our current stalwarts will be available and that’s where you’d come in.
St. Andrew’s supports Abundant Life Ministries in many ways: monthly cooked dinner offerings and pantry donations, weekly delivery of food boxes to neighbors in need, funding through the Outreach Committee and weekly help with gathering up grocery store and A&T farm produce donations. It takes many hands to provide this much-appreciated service.
We currently have two specific needs where your help would be most welcome: On every second Tuesday, our ‘St. Andrew’s Day’, Abundant Life is looking for one or two of us to greet neighbors who come for Bible Study and stay through supper.
The second need is for someone to collect the donated food on Mondays from 10:30am – 12:30pm and deliver it to Abundant Life where other volunteers will help you unload it. Two of us are currently doing this weekly service, and we would really welcome a third person’s help. Please contact Barbara Cooke (336-521-0040 or firstname.lastname@example.org) with your interest is this service ministry. We’d love to have you join the team!
Support Glory Ridge
and Show Your Love with Pinwheels
Later this summer, St. Andrew’s youth will travel to Madison Co. for their Glory Ridge mission week. They are raising funds for the trip by planting pinwheel gardens! For a suggested donation of $100, you can send a friend some love in the form of dozens of bright pinwheels in their yard. Please visit https://bit.ly/EYCPinwheel or use one of the pinwheel envelopes in the church to order. You may pay by check or online. Our EYC thanks you! Email email@example.com with any questions.
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 from the narthex on Sunday morning. The following week, bring it back with items to be donated, and take another bag to fill. You may also pick up and drop off bags outside the office. Weekly distribution to One Step Further Food Pantry, our partner agency, is year-round. With summer approaching, the need will soon increase, as many families depend on school nutrition programs during the school year. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com and Bill Hill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
