June 8, 2014 will be a special Sunday at Rockland St. Andrew's.  Our Events team has prepared a Strawberry Social, a light lunch capped by Strawberry Shortcake. Joining us for both the regular worship service and the Strawberry Social will be the Gospel Quartet, 7th Heaven, to both inspire and entertain. 

It also happens to be the 80th (!!!) birthday of Rev. Neil Baxter, our retired associate pastor, so we are celebrating that occasion as well. It's intended to be a surprise for Neil. (We are assured by Lise that Neil does not check the internet.)

Neil will be preaching at our 10:00 Worship, and the Strawberry Social will begin after that. The entertainment will begin at 1:00 to allow time for our friends from neighbouring churches to come and join us.

The Parade handouts just arrived!!! we're getting ready for a weekend of fun and feasting: 
Saturday 9:00am Men's Breakfast, 
Saturday 6:00pm Sts Andrew and Edith Stein ladies potluck
Sunday 4:00 pm parade (come help hand out flyers!)
Sunday about 6:00pm - a hot dinner to warm up after the parade. (Feel free to come out even if you miss the parade. Pot luck)

We're delighted to announce that Rev.  Neil Baxter came home from the Bruyere centre on Friday September 13, and will joined us at church on Sunday.  We celebrated with a potluck lunch. The story of Neil's journey back to health can be found on our Community page.

 We went to the Christmas Parade in Rockland, and handed out about 2000 candy canes, with a story about the symbolism of the treat. The message on our slide show tells about our Christmas schedule too!
