  Happenings during the Month of October 2017

Mrs. A. E. Roman (aged 97 yrs)
M/O Mrs. Ann Francis
Passed away on 22nd October 2017

The month that was.

The Annual Thanksgiving Festival (Harvest) was celebrated on Sunday, 08th October 2017. Our Church was decorated aesthetically, reflecting the gratefulness of the congregation. Rev. Jessie Ranjan brought an inspiring message on the real meaning of Thanksgiving.

Physical arrangements at the auction area provided a festive ambience. There was brisk sale of coupons and rush at all the stalls, put up by the Women's Fellowship, Youth Fellowship, Sunday School, Men's Fellowship and Mission & Evangelism Wings. The sumptuous and mouth-watering delicacies lasted right till the time, the auction got over! Members enthusiastically outbid each other in the auction with a willing spirit. The Sunday school engaged the kids of all ages with games and the kids had a gala time. Paddy, sugarcane and coffee were there for all. As this year's harvest collections had been earmarked for church maintenance and to support the Bethany Ashram (Senior Citizens' Home) at Channapatna, there was cheerful giving by everyone from St. Andrew's family.

Sale and auction came to a close with prayer and benediction by our Presbyterin- charge Rev. Jessie Ranjan. Finally it was time to collect the Biriyani packets and relish at home.

We thank all the wings of the church and individuals for their active participation for making this year's Harvest Thanksgiving Festival a grand success.

May God's name be praised!

Harvest Festival at the Mission Field, Tubagere

A few Congregat ion members traveled to Tubagere Mission Field on Sunday the 15th of October, 2017

The Mission Field at Tubagere, observed their Harvest Thanksgiving on Sunday the 15th of October, 2017. A few members from our church left at 8.30 am to Tubagere Mission Field. The members of Tubagere Church had assembled for service at the regular place of worship, and had placed their Thank Offerings in kind, such as fruits, corn, vegetables and greens, which they had grown in their fields. There was a lot of joy and happiness around. The service began with Praise and Worship, after which our church member Mr. Naveen Rangayya, delivered a very meaningful message giving Biblical references for the celebration of Harvest Festival. As per our Presbyter Rev. Jessie Ranjan's guidance, Mr. Naveen Rangayya made an attempt to teach the congregation to join in the Confessional Prayer and the Creed. It was a very vibrant worship service. After the worship service, everyone participated in the sale of vegetables, fruits, and other items, and contributed generously towards the ministry. Finally, we had a wonderful Fellowship Lunch with them.

We thank and praise God for all His wonderful gifts to us and for the fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Tubagere Mission Field. We thank each one of you for being a great support in your contributions, and for your prayerful support. Please continue to uphold the outreach ministry of our church in your daily family prayers.

Thank you
