The “Aggerholm girls”; Karen, Cheryl, Patricia and Carol and their families would like to thank the people of St. Andrew’s for their support during an incredibly difficult time.
The loss of our Mom was devastating but the kind words, donations, cards and support has helped to ease our burden. We especially thank Dr. Human for his ongoing counsel and support. Remember: “the best is yet to come!” Jeg Elsker Die
Thank you so very much for the Easter cards and flowers and good wishes. Very much appreciated.

THANK YOU FROM
30 HOUR FAMINE
April 28/29th, 2017
The Youth Group gratefully acknowledge all the people who helped make this a wonderful event! Our numbers were small but as in the last year we forged ahead! Thank you to the Youth who participated – Ann, Lexi, Jordan and Sophie! Also, our sisters and brothers in the Latino congregation, Obed Valenzuela, who presented “Life and mission in Mexico”, our heartfelt thanks. Special thanks go to Doug Stewart, Peter Barnaby, Karen Barnaby, John Sparling, Margo Da Sie, Trish and Karen from the Compass, Cathy Shintani @ St. Mark’s Lutheran, the Sunshine Guild, Rev. Human and, of course, our wonderful church family without whose support this would not be possible. Thank you all for your love and encouragement and donations (both of pledging—we raised over $1500; and food!). We are blessed by our Father to be surrounded with the care of those mentioned above. May he continue to shine His Light on you all!
Denise and Darlene,
