At two meetings during the month of February, St. Andrew’s Board of Directors heard the reports and recommendations of our Futures Task Force and its three working groups. Recommendations with respect to Ethiopian outreach were accepted and a fifth weekly service at St. Andrew in the Amharic language will begin on Easter Sunday. (See Pastor Mark’s April blog post for for additional details.) A leadership team has been appointed to support this important step into the future of our ministry. Those who feel led to add their participation commitment to the team are encouraged to contact Sarita Winter at the church office for more information.
The group working on the feasibility of additional parking is pursuing the necessary testing of soil, engineering, and cost estimates necessary to determine the potential of building a new lot on the north side of our facility, after which the board will hear a more detailed report.
Finally, the Howard County Second Site working group’s report and recommendations will be discussed at the board’s next meeting, when members will determine a decision-making path for further consideration and communication with the members of St. Andrew.
As the future unfolds, your prayers are desired for God’s continued grace and direction in the days ahead,
