MAY 2020


Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7

During this time apart from others what is God inviting you to “learn”?

Peace and Love,


Worship Ideas

1. Let’s say the Lord’s Prayer every day at noon. Then, think of the other people you know who are also saying this wonderful prayer. (If you need a reminder, set an alarm on your phone!)
2. Set up a sacred space in your own home. Put your Bible there. Matthew is our gospel this season. Read a little every day.
3. The Diocese of Spokane worship services can be viewed by clicking on the following links:

Elbert Hubbard—Elbert Morris Hubbard, Jr., passed peacefully away at his home on Willow Point in Manson, on Dec. 5, 2019, after a long Alzheimer's journey. He was born on April 10, 1935. On August 22, 1959, he and Hannah Cobb were married at St. Andrews Church. Elbert and Hannah raised three children, Camille Lynne, Todd Elbert, and Kevin Michael. After a 29-year career in the Northshore School District in Bothell, Hannah and Elbert returned to their Manson home and our St. Andrew’s church family. They have both dedicated their time and love and service here. Services for Elbert have been postponed at this time.

Margaret KamphausMargaret G. Kamphaus, 101, of Chelan, WA, passed away peacefully on April 25, 2020. Margaret was born on November 12, 1918, on a Chelan Butte homestead, to Walter J. and Georgia M. Petersen. She was the eldest of five children. Margaret enjoyed many things in life such as camping, fishing the streams, tending to her beautiful flower gardens, reading, working crossword puzzles, and traveling to National Parks and to other parts of the country. However, nothing was more important to Margaret than her family. The love she had for her family was endless. Margaret was also involved in the community. She volunteered at the local food bank for several years. Margaret was also a long time member of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. She enjoyed being a Sunday School teacher and a member of the Episcopal Church Women (ECW). Margaret was also a member of the Eagles Auxiliary and Daughters of Rebekah. Margaret was a woman of love, strength, compassion, loyalty and faith. She made the world a better place and will be missed dearly.

Mother’s Day will be celebrated on May 10th. We remember all the wonderful women who have contributed so much to our lives, our church, our communities, and to our world.
A Mother’s Love

There are times when only a Mother’s love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappoints
And calm all of our fears.

There are times when only a Mother’s love
Can share the joy we feel,
When something we’ve dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.

There are times when only a Mother’s faith
Can help us on life’s way,
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.

For a Mother’s heart and a Mother’s faith
And a Mother’s steadfast love,
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above.
