The Holy Currencies approach to stewardship is exciting! It views the wholeness of what it means to be a faithful steward, to care for all that God has gifted to us in our lives. The Holy Currencies approach views stewardship as a year-round learning experience instead of limiting stewardship discussions to a couple of months in the fall.

Rectors in Conversation,
Sunday, October 24, 2pm
Live Stream Link:
As we approach the end of this historic and momentous 25th year in the life and ministry of the Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew, the two rectors of the parish wish to share their experiences and reflections with the whole congregation. The Rev. Canon Lloyd Casson was rector from 1997 to 2007 and the Rev. David Andrews has been rector since 2010. At the end of this year, he will retire from active ministry. Canon Casson and Fr. Andrews, with the support of Jonathan Whitney, will have a conversation on YouTube on Sunday afternoon, October 24, 2021 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. We hope that you will join this conversation with the first two ordained leaders of SsAM.
Drumming Circle, Tuesdays, 6pm
The beat goes on at 7th & West Streets every Tuesday evening. All are welcome and drums are provided. Join Jonathan Whitney and friends!

“Held in Bloom” Paintings
by Chloe McEldowney
Friday, Nov. 5, 6-9pm
Chris White Gallery,
701 N. Shipley Street,
The non-profit Chris White Gallery has re-opened. At the other end of the block from our church, you are invited to see the paintings of local artist Chloe McEldowney. Of her work, she says, “For me, painting is the endless pursuit of understanding. On the surface, my paintings portray a singular figure, but my work expresses instead the idea that nothing exists in isolation. Every individual is comprised of parts: identity and memory, intention and emotion. And they themselves are a part of a larger universe.” Click here to learn more about this Chris White Gallery exhibit.
