Sunday December 11  Next Sunday (December 11) is our special shortened service (1/2 hour) designed to include younger children. We will be telling the Christmas story with anyone who would like to be included dressing up and taking a part. There will be parts for a Mary and a Joseph, for Angels and Shepherd and Magi and off course cows.

Christmas Lunch  After the service we will also be having our Christmas Lunch with turkey and all the trimmings for everyone.

Christmas Mission Projects:

Food Bank Cookies – By December 12  We will help to provide Christmas (Voortman or other) cookies for the Stittsville Food Bank Christmas baskets.

Seniors at Granite Ridge – By December 18  We have been in touch with Granite ridge again and this year we will be bringing gifts to some residents who would benefit from St Andrew’s care. If you would like to participate, please pick up the resident’s wish list from the Christmas Tree in the gathering space and return the gifts by December 18.

Clothes for Students – By December 15  There is a need at Banting High School and at Woodroffe High School for clothing. Winter clothes, summer clothes, t-shirts, socks, gloves, hats… pretty well anything! Please make sure the clothes are in good shape and clean. You can drop these clothes off on the couches in the gathering space. The things that you have already brought in have been very well received, and I continue to take whatever comes in over to them every week. This was the first load…

Memory Tree – By December 19 Donations are given in memory or in honour of our loved ones and a ball and a tag with the name will go up on our Christmas Tree in the church. The proceeds this year will be divided between the Kanata-Stittsville Refugee Sponsorship Group, Banting High School, and the Ukraine Relief through PWS&D. There are Memory Tree envelopes on the table in the church hall for you to fill out and put your money in.

Operation Come Home – By December 19   Gifts and necessities for street youth. Bags with a list of what is most needed are available in the church hall. As always, we contacted Operation Come home to make sure we were providing the things they really need and they said we are on the right track and added a few things. Here is the ;latest list if you would like to get  a head start.

COVID-19 Information

We know that COVID-19 is still in the community, and as of the middle of October the waste water numbers are going up again. There are no provincial or city of Ottawa regulations or mandates for churches at this time, however it is still recommended that those with compromised immune systems and anyone at risk continue to mask when inside in groups of people. Here at St. Andrew’s we no longer require masking even while singing, however we still encourage people to mask while in the church building.

Here is a brief summary of how we are dealing with COVID-19

      • If you have COVID symptoms or you are not well, please stay home and join us online.
      • We will continue livestream and recorded services indefinitely.
      • You may sit wherever you like, but be sensitive of other people’s comfort level with sitting close to people.
      • If in doubt, just ask if they are comfortable with you sitting near them.
      • We are not yet returning to having coffee hour…  hopefully Soon!
      • The Session will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and the advice of medical authorities and if need be we will consider re-introducing masking requirements or other measures in order to do what we reasonably can to help keep people safe.
