Pursued by Goodness and Mercy

Written by Beth Hess on . Posted in Come and See

My Grandma passed away last week and I just returned from her funeral, a celebration of a life well lived.  Grandma lived to be 98 years old.  She was a farmer’s wife, a mother of six, a long-time Home Economics teacher, and the embodiment of a woman of faith.

Grandma loved sports.  She loved listening to baseball games on the radio, loved watching football games on TV, and loved watching her grandchildren compete in high school sports.  As Grandma’s memory faded the last couple of years, she kept a handwritten list of the important people in her life.  My Aunt Kay found the list after Grandma was done using it and saw that Grandma had carefully catalogued her children, grandchildren, extended relatives, neighbors, and friends.  And there in the bottom right-hand corner were two more names: Peyton and Eli Manning.

Book Fair This Weekend

Written by Barb Jones on . Posted in General Announcements

Our 10th Annual Book Fair will have a Friday preview from 5-8 this week.
It will be open 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. this Saturday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday!
Stop by the Intersection on Saturday for a less crowded and more relaxed Book Fair experience.
Bring your children, friends and neighbors!
Also, bring your wallet or checkbook because the Book Fair is a fund raiser. We are counting on your generous support! This year we are raising money for the Redbird Mission and Tippecanoe County United Food Pantry.
Park near the playground and enter through the doors closest to the Intersection.

From Chaos to Life

Written by St Andrew on . Posted in Come and See

I love the chaos which finds itself here at St Andrew every Sunday morning.  No, I am not speaking about the worship services nor the growing Children's Ministry.  I am talking about the constant buzz rising up from the entryway or Commons.  This buzz of activity and conversation and life begins around the 8 o'clock hour and does not diminish until well after noon with very strong gusts from 9:45-10:00 and again from 11:00-11:15.

College Scholarship

Written by Raysha Honsowetz on . Posted in Announcements

St. Andrew College Scholarships

Deadline: May 1, 2017

The church is currently offering two $500 scholarships for the coming school year and will be continued to be offered in the coming years. A recipient can only receive the scholarship for one year.

Any under-graduate or graduate student may apply and can be in any year of their education. The scholarship is available to those attending any institution of higher education including Ivy Tech.

An application is online here

The two scholarships will be awarded based equally on (1) academic achievement, (2) involvement in St. Andrew UMC, (3) leadership in the community, and (4) financial need.

The application can be filled out online with certain documentation turned into the church office by May 1, 2017

The funds for these scholarships were provided by Loraine Edwards. Ms. Edwards donated funds to provide scholarships to deserving applicants. Loraine Edwards was an active, long-time member of St. Andrew (50 years at least). Loraine lived to be almost 107 and she volunteered in the office helping with the newsletters and the Sunday bulletins until a year before her death. She is still serving her church family by seeing that there are monies to support young college students from our congregation. What a gift she was and still is!
