If you are powerless or are losing power, or if you live without privilege, or if you have lost something significant in life – lost a loved one, lost an ability, lost being attractive, strong, agile, dexterous, competent, healthy, desirable – then you will hear what Jesus says about the last becoming first, not as an arduous adjudication, but as a welcome invitation. You still belong.

Angel Tree Volunteers Needed
The Salvation Army welcomes volunteers to assist with Angel Tree registration the week of Sept. 10. Angel Tree is an outreach that provides Christmas gifts to children in low-income families. Typically, we serve over 300 children each year. Volunteers are needed to welcome applicants, review required documentation, and record requests. We like to have at least five people working each shift. Volunteers should arrive 15 minutes early for their shift, so that they can be oriented to their task for the day. Spanish-speaking volunteers are especially welcome! If you would like to volunteer, we need you to register in advance. Please e-mail Capt. Maureen Diffley at Maureen.firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 865-361-0051. She will provide a more detailed explanation of the process.
Available shifts include:
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday
September 10, 12 & 13
4:45pm – 8:15pm
Wednesday & Saturday
September 11 & 14
9:15am – 12:15pm
Christian Formation is taking today off to do some planning for the fall and to encourage you to learn more about St. Andrew’s at the Ministry Fair. Classes for all ages, from 4 to 94, resume next Sunday, Sept 15. If you would like to help, please get in touch with John DiDiego at email@example.com.
