St. Andrew's Day, 2018 A Brief Report

St. Andrew's Day this year was celebrated on Sunday, the 25th of November 2018. We specially thank our Heavenly Father for the wonderful way He has guided us through the year, and for His providence. Various events were planned through the Month of November. The focus this year was to involve Children, Women, and the Senior Citizens in various activities.

Two Special Activities were conducted for the first time:

  • 'Crafty hands': Ladies of our congregation participated in a competition, where creative handicrafts were made on the spot and were exhibited. The winners were awarded prizes on St. Andrew's day
  • A special event called 'Senior Citizen's Fiesta' was organised for the Senior members, and this was a memorable event. They shared their experiences, their talents and skills, and gave testimony how the Lord guided and protected them through times of crises and difficult periods. A child, a teenager, a youth and an adult, came up and spoke in appreciation of their grandparents and elders, and the role they played in their lives, the advice and the guidance they received, and the impact they have had in moulding them. A time of fellowship, singing, fun, and games, followed which cheered them up, and the evening culminated with fellowship over a sumptuous dinner.

The next day was St. Andrew's Day, and it started with the beautiful Worship Service and the celebration of the Eucharist. The Guest Preacher on this special occasion was Rev. Dr. Chilkuri Vasantha Rao, the Principal of the United Theological College. He delivered a very inspiring Sermon based on Psalm 84. The Church Choir, Stuthi@Andrews, Children from St. Andrew's School, St. Andrew's School of Music Orchestra along with the Voice Training Students and members of St. Andrew's Men's Ensemble, rendered special musical numbers, which were much appreciated.

Following our tradition, our members who attained 70 years of age during the past year, were honoured. Eleven meritorious students were awarded a token of appreciation and a certificate. The recently retired Headmistress of our School at Siddapura, Mrs. Indira Bhai, was also honoured for her 35 years of dedicated service.

After the Worship Service, our Sunday School children went around with their hand-made bookmarks and each family picked up one. The child who made the book-mark and the family who picked it up would share a special bond the family, the child and the child's family would regularly pray for each other. A beautiful bond indeed!

The day came to an end with a wonderful fellowship over a very delicious and a sumptuous Lunch served for all present.

We go forward thanking God and confident that 'His hand will continue to guide us from age to age'
