Teddies for Tragedy
On Sunday 6 of November during the Young Worshippers part of the Worship Service we dedicated more than 100 Teddies pictured here, which have been made by a few members of the St. Andrew's Atlantic Mission Society (AMS).
The AMS joined in this ministry of care and outreach, which was established in 1985. It distributes these cuddly, hand-made Teddies and their bags to children all over the world who are dealing with wars, sickness, loss of family, and for some, all of the above. Medical personnel, teachers, and other caring professionals who meet with the children and their families personally deliver these Teddies.
From Start to Finish
St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church had much to celebrate on Sunday 18 September as they marked the completion of their Elevator Project with a service of dedication. For a number of years the congregation has desired to make the church accessible and while some options have been attempted and many considered, the congregation came to the unanimous decision at the February 2016 annual congregational meeting to install a Vertical Platform Lift. After the congregational meeting pledges were made and significant donations started to come in. The project was supported was supported in part by a bequest to the Presbyterian Church in Canada and by a grant from the Presbytery of New Brunswick. These grants certainly helped, yet the success of this project depended greatly on the sacrificial giving of the people in this small congregation. Art Miller, who is Chair of the Board and supervised the project, remarked, “The congregation has given generously to the project and we are delighted that our building is now accessible to those who would have difficulty navigating the stairs up to the sanctuary or down to the basement.” Pauline Atkinson took part in the celebration by presenting the elevator on behalf of the congregation requesting that it be dedicated to the glory of God.In the photo below Pauline Atkinson cut the ribbon during the dedication service alongside Art Miller and Rev. Jeffrey Murray.

Mission Awareness Sunday
The members of the St. Andrew's Atlantic Mission Society (AMS) Auxiliary led worship on Sunday 26 April to mark Mission Awareness Sunday. The theme was "The Good Shepherd" based on John 10:11-18. The prayers and other elements of the worship service were adapted from the worship resource prepared by the Mission Education Committee of the AMS.
