Choir and Ringers - please refer to this schedule for future planning.
A huge thank you!
To the anonymous souls who kindly donated several new music stands for music worship! We are very grateful to have additional tools to enhance music worship in the future.
We have 15 angels this year. Please be sure to get yours from the small Christmas Tree at the rear of the Church. Gifts should be returned unwrapped, with the Angel tag by December 17th.
New Advent Wreath Stand
Special thanks to Helen & Bob Rotzinger for their generous gift of a beautiful new Advent Wreath Stand, complete with liquid wax candles!
The stand, with its clean lines, offers a simply elegant addition to the altar. Thank you both so much.
Parish Potluck Dinners
This month's potluck dinner will be held Saturday December 17th beginning at 5:30 PM. The theme will be - Taco Bar.

We ask that attendees bring the rest of the "fixins" for the Taco Bar and whatever you would like to drink.
Please RSVP to Cindy Kilcoyne via phone or text (240-577-3737) by Thursday December 15th if you plan to attend. Please also include in your message what you will be bringing so we can be sure we have everything we need!
After dinner, we will have a cookie exchange. To participate, you will need - 4 dozen of your favorite cookies, a copy of your recipe, and an empty container to hold the cookies you will be taking home.
We will take the recipes and create a St. Andrew's Cookies Exchange Booklet and share it with everyone following the event.
We look forward to seeing everyone on December 17th!

Mask use on Campus is optional for those who are fully vaccinated.
Please continue to exercise good judgment and sensitivity during your time on campus and in Church. Please do not ask those who continue to wear masks why this is the case; read body language and social cues carefully and respect any wish for distance.
Please continue to wave or flash the peace sign as a means of Passing the Peace.
We have returned to offering two forms of communion. Individual cups will be available for those who wish to receive.
Church yard clean-up - RESCHEDULED DUE TO RAIN
Due to forecasted weather, we are rescheduling Yard clean-up to Saturday December 10th, 9am - Noon.
Plan to bring your leaf blowers, rakes and tarps so we can make quick work of it!
Don't forget to sign up for poinsettias. Plants are $15 each.
A sign up sheet will be available in the back of the Church or you can sign up online at https://standrewsleonardtown.org/christmas-flowers
Is a great way to meet visitors and connect with friends you may not see during the week. Consider hosting - solo or with another family. There is a sign up sheet on the bulletin board in the Parish Hall.
Looking for a way to become more involved, but don't have a lot of extra time?
Consider becoming a lector. You help by reading the first lesson and appointed Psalm during the Church service. Usually, only once per month. If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
