Discerning The Future
Presbytery has empaneled an Administrative Commission to discerning what the future will be for the Calvary St. Andres congregation and building. The church has a long history of involvement in the social justice issues in the community and the food ministry continues to be a crucial source of food for many living in the South Wedge.
But dwindling membership has left the congregation in a difficult situation. There are too few members to support a clergy position. Nor can they cover the costs involved in maintaining an old (very beautiful) church.
So … what to do?
The Administrative Commission has been looking at various options. Now they are looking for neighborhood input.
Open House and Information Session
An Open House will be held on Tuesday evening, June 28, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Everyone is invited. From 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM – wander around and explore the sanctuary, chapel, offices, and classrooms. 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM hear what the process of discernment is, where we have been, where we are, and how we will proceed from here.
If you are curious … come look around.
If you have a comment or suggestion … come share it.
We would love to have as much input as possible. Calvary St. Andrews has been a vital part of the South Wedge for over 150 years, and we hope it will continue to serve the community for another 150 years. Come join us in the journey.
