Elizabeth Koerner, our Interim Minister for Children and Youth, has resigned from her position at St. Andrew's in order to take care of family obligations, (Her father, Roger Perry, was recently released from the hospital and Elizabeth is caring for him.) We are so grateful to Elizabeth for her skillful, diligent, compassionate ministry with our children and youth, not only as a paid member of the staff but also for her years of volunteer work, too. She has laid a solid foundation on which others can build. Well done, good and faithful servant. Please hold Elizabeth, Roger, and their whole family in your prayers during this time of transition. Elizabeth will be back in our midst as parishioner and friend as soon as Roger is better, and Roger, too, looks forward to being back at church.
The Rev. Jennifer Kimball and our college interns Maggie Mahloy and Alex Shaddock will be increasing their work hours in coming weeks to ensure that our ministry to youth and children can continue smoothly. We are so grateful to Jen, Maggie, and Alex for their generosity with their time. Please keep all those who work with our youth and children in your prayers. If you are able to help with tasks in the coming weeks, please let Jen Kimball know.
