St. Andrew's Coed Softball Team
The 2013 season of the Fairfax County Church Softball League is almost over, but you can still come out and support the team!
The schedule for June:
Fri. June 14 - 6:15 p.m. @ Ossian Hall Park (field #2) - double-header
Work Camp Care Cards
From July 6-13, 2013, several high school students and adults from St. Andrew's will go to Bluefield, Virginia, to help families in need with reconstruction and painting. Every year, we send care cards and packages for each of these volunteers. If you're interested in providing a note or small treat in support of each work camper, please let Debbie or Pam know. Please provide these items by Wednesday, 7/3. Thank you!
Canned Food Ingathering
The work campers are collecting canned food items to donate to a local food bank in Bluefield, Virginia. Please help by bringing in canned food by June 30. There will be a drop off box, “Work Camp Canned Food Ingathering”, across from the church office. Our goal is to collect 150 cans. Any additional cans collected from this ingathering will be donated to ECHO (due to limited transportation space).
NEEDED ITEMS: Canned vegetables & fruits, canned meals (i.e., soup, chili, stew, etc.), canned beans & peas (i.e., black, pinto, lentils), canned meats (i.e., tuna, chicken, salmon), and canned fruit juice.
June 23rd - Parish Picnic!
Starting immediately after the 10 a.m. service on June 23rd, this year’s parish picnic will be held at Burke Lake Park, in Picnic Area C. Tickets are on sale after each service in June; $5 per person, with a max of $20 for a family. We will have chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, and drinks. Please contribute a salad or dessert to share with everyone. We hope to see you there!
