How Can We Help in these uncertain Times?

At St. Andrew’s, the answer to this question has been crafted to fit the circumstances.  Session has stated that the Loonie Offering for APRIL is to go to Second Harvest Food Bank.  With no “collection” possible at the present time, we are encouraging everyone to support this Ministry by simply making a Cash donation through the mail.  Cheques can be mailed to:

Neighbourlink Shuswap

Box 741

Salmon Arm, B.C. V1E 4N8

Please make your cheque payable to Second Harvest Food Bank

Our Church has a long history in Salmon Arm supporting the work of Neighbourlink who, in turn, operate the Second Harvest Food Bank.  Recently, we placed a box in the Narthex for donations of personal hygiene items. Non-perishable food items have also been collected during Communion services as well.  With the current isolation situation, these methods of donation are not possible.  Please consider your support in monetary terms as you feel the Lord’s leading.

Second Harvest continues to operate, and we see the needs increasing as the pandemic progresses.  At this time, with “Social Distancing” measures, the volunteers are preparing hampers in the facility and simply handing them out during their operating hours.  If you are looking for a way to serve this ministry, please call Don Cann to discuss the options.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Neighbourlink Shuswap and the community of Salmon Arm, I will take this opportunity to Thank You for your support.

Wow; can you imagine what heaven is going to be like? The praise, the choir of angels, the eternal joy; heaven will be a celebration, a party, an adventure. Our worship on Sunday should be a foretaste of heaven; a party, an adventure. To hear more about this listen to Rev. Ena’s sermon from the 19th entitled “Party? Adventure? Come and See!” .

On this 4th Sunday in Advent, are you going to sneak away or embrace the will of God, even as Joseph did? “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name emmanuel” (which means, God with us). When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.”
