St. Andrew’s News—

Organ Speakers—John Bagby, Bob Beeson and Gary Norris from Worship Music Consultants met at the church last month to install new speakers for our organ. The old ones were not working well. Scaffolding was built for John Bagby to bravely climb up and install the new speakers and wiring. Upon closer inspection, he discovered our original speakers were not even connected! Needless to say the group was quite surprised. Our speaker wires were connected and the new speakers were returned unused. Hannah’s organ music can now be heard clearly for all to enjoy.

Joy Song—A women’s singing group from the West Side will perform at St. Andrew’s on Sunday, December 7 at 7:oo p.m. Stay tuned fore more details on this exciting Christmas concert!
Outreach—Publicity—Kathy volunteered to make publicity announcement to local news agencies on up-coming church events. We will continue to focus on providing information and outreach to visitors and new residents. If you know about events you would like added, please visit with her and share information.

The Episcopal Church of St. Andrew

The red cross on a white field is the St. George Cross, an indicator of our link to the Church of England, the mother church of the Anglican Communion. The miniature crosses in the blue quadrant symbolize the nine original American dioceses that met in Philadelphia in 1789 to adopt the constitution of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America.
The outline of the miniature crosses is in the form of St. Andrew’s Cross in tribute to the Scottish church’s role in ordaining the first American bishop, Samuel Seabury, in 1784. The colors red, white and blue symbolize, respectfully, the sacrifice of Christ and Christian martyrs, the purity of the Christian faith, and the humanity of Christ received from the Virgin Mary. In duplicating the colors of the American flag, they also represent the Episcopal Church’s standing as the U.S. branch of the Anglican communion.


Travel Abroad

Our Vicar, The Rev. Canon Linda Mayer and her dear friend Karen have been off on another adventure around the world. This time her travels included both a Viking Ocean Cruise and River Cruise. She toured many European countries including Germany, Denmark, Norway and Switzerland. Oftentimes day tours include visiting beautiful churches and cathedrals in cities such as Cologne, Skagen, Oslo, and Flam. One unexpected surprise on this trip was a concert featuring Italian Opera Singer Andrea Bocelli.

Linda loves to meet many delightful people on her travels. Sharing tour adventures and delicious meals together, she has formed many long-lasting friendships.

Despite missing our Priest, St. Andrew’s enjoyed Supply Priests Tony Green and Andrew Ray during her absence. We are always thankful for their service!




Words of Wisdom—

All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don’t worry, they can’t last long either.



July is Bach Fest in Chelan!

St. Andrew’s is pleased to join with our Chelan community for Bach Fest 2019! Each year, our courtyard provides a venue for the Children’s Concert Series. Adults and children alike are captivated by the sights and sounds of these concerts. Musicians share and teach the children about their instruments and the beautiful music they make. Children are inspired in their love of music!

This year’s concerts will be held at 10:00 a.m:
Monday, July 15—A Little Morning of Music
Tuesday, July 17—Baroque Violin: Handel Corelli and Bach
Friday, Jul 19—Gershwin and Glass.

St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church Women sell snacks and water during the, “Pop In The Park” Concert held at the Chelan Riverwalk Park Pavilion on Saturday, July 20th at 7:30 p.m. Proceeds from the sale are donated to Bach Fest to support a musician. Each year we are thrilled to support a musician. Often times these musicians are college students who take the week off from work and school to perform here in Chelan. Supporting a musician helps provide for their travel expense, food, and lodging.
