Priest Recruitment Updates

Profile reports: Both the Profile Committee and the State of the Congregation Committee are working on profile reports to present to Susan Cleavely. These reports will be presented to potential vicar’s providing them with information about our church, members, community, and region.

Prayer: We pray to you Lord with trust, as you lead us with your love on our journey for a new vicar. Give us wisdom as we search for someone filled with love for the Lord. A person who is compassionate and excited to be a part of our church family here at Chelan, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church.

Bach Fest in the Courtyard- This year, Bach Fest once again held concerts in the St. Andrew’s Courtyard. Musicians stored music and instruments in our Parish Hall. On Saturday evening, the final concert took place at Riverwalk Park behind the church. Our Episcopal Church Women baked dozens and dozens of cookies to sell as an ECW fundraiser. Bottled water was generously donated by a local business person. Totals sales surpassed. $350.00! Thank you to all the ladies who helped with this event.

ECW Pie Social-_We are pleased to announce that once again that St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church Women will once again hold the annual Pie Social on Saturday, August 20th. Doors will open at 10:00 a.m. promptly. Buy and whole pie and take it home for $25.00. Sit and enjoy a slice of pie for $5.00. Add ice cream ala mode for $1.00 more. Just remember, the pies sell out quickly. Be sure to arrive early!


Darrell Thayer Obituary

It is with sadness that we inform you of the passing of Darrell Thayer. He lived in Roseburg, Oregon with his wife Judy. Their son lives in Roseburg, one daughter lives in Battleground, and another daughter lives in Washugal, so Judy has family nearby. Darrell turned 88 this past March. The Thayer’s were long time members of the St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church before moving closer to family.




Food Bank Donation

In cooperation with the local Safeway food store and the Chelan Food Bank, St. Andrew’s parishioner Breck Smith contributed 840 cans of chopped tomatoes to the essential program. “St. Andrew’s initiated the food bank years ago and now it has taken on a life of its own. Breck remarked, “I’m happy to do my part to help people in need.”
