Monthly Newsletter June, 2012

THE RECTOR'S RAMBLINGS What do we do now? N ow that Mark has left to take on his own parish, this is a question I hear from all sides. Well, the first thing we do is to reflect on all that Mark has done and all that he has meant to St. Andrew's On-the-Sound and give thanks. We are a different church than we were when he came. His contribution to our life and ministry has been great, and will carry on long after he has settled deep into Westhampton Beach. The second thing is to pat ourselves on the back on what a good job we all did in nurturing Mark into the priesthood and parish ministry. He came with a lot of talent and energy and St. Andrew's met that with love and acceptance. It is no easy job to help someone to move from student to priest, but St. Andrew's has done it, and others have taken notice. Then we need to do nothing for a while. We need to take the time to miss Mark, and also to dream a bit. Not about whom we can find to replace Mark, which is an unfair question both for him and for whomever comes along, but what St. Andrew's needs in order to continue and grow our ministry. This will take some time, not only to reflect on who and what we need to look for, but also to find the right person. Remember it took over year to find Mark once we made the decision to look for an assistant. In the meantime we need to pick up the traces and continue the work. Each of the ministries which Mark founded, refounded or facilitated has talented and dedicated volunteers involved and working hard. In this interim period each of you can claim your own authority and carry on. After all, we are all the ministers the church. Let us send Mark forth with our best wishes and blessings move forward together at St. Andrew's On-the-Sound.

CELEBRATION SUNDAY St. Andrew's On-the-Sound designated May 20th as Celebration Sunday and we discovered that we truly have much to celebrate. The support of our Sound Future Capital Campaign is overwhelming. Many in shared voice a resoundmg YES to expanding our facilities! As a result we will be better able to welcome those who come our way. Celebration Sunday was also a reminder that St. Andrew's has much more to celebrate:

A SOUND FUTURE have stepp~d up

growth in attendance which has made us one of the leading Episcopal churches in the nation.

Our growth in missions and programs under Mark's five years of service. volunteers.

• We celebrate Mark's call to be the Rector at St. Mark's church in Westhampton Beach, NY. Although we will miss him, we are happy for him and are honored to have been the first step on his journey in ministry.

SUMMER FAITH 2012 Our Mission is to bring women together to read books that not only inform but also transform through Christ and conform us to his image. Through reading and discussion we seek to integrate God's Word with spiritual practice and to move from inward change to outward witness in the process of fulfilling our deepest desire to be in God's presence and to become our true selves in light of God's grace. We are reading Mother Teresa: A Complete Authorized Biography by Kathryn Spink and Kisses From Katie by Katie J. Davis over the summer vacation. We will reconvene in September on Tuesdays from 9:30 to 11:30 in the patio room. Child care is provided. Please join us. Contact: Karla Blinn

Hope to see you there, Donna Grice ~


I hope some guys in our congregation will consider a stewardship opportunity in the Adult Choir this fall. Due to retirement and a college graduation, we will say good-bye to a couple of great guys-David Parker and Eric Forbis. Perhaps you sang in a high school or college choir? Had a few piano lessons once upon a time? We rehearse on Thursday evenings 6:30-8:00 and warm up on Sunday morning before the 11:00 a.m. service. Rehearsals will begin again in September. You might also consider trying out the summer choir beginning in June. We warm up at 10:15 a.m. on Sunday morning. This option is open to anyone high school and older. We welcome singers in ALL sections of the Adult choir. We also have a graduate leaving the Bell Choir and would love at least two more hands to join us. Middle School, High School, Adult with some degree of music reading from piano lessons or band helps. We meet on Tuesdays evenings starting in September at 6:15 p.m. Also resuming in September the Jr. Choristers will meet on Wednesday afternoons at 4:00 p.m. for second graders and up. I'd like to start a new group of kindergarten and first grade singers and I am suggesting Thursdays at 3:30 p.m. or 4:00 p.m., whichever is convenient.






The next Men's Breakfast will be Saturday, JUNE 16, ~ at 8:30 a.m. in the parish hall. Team 2 will be our • hosts. All men are welcome, so please join us for a ~ GREAT breakfast and fellowship. \:.}'

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY ECUMENICAL HOUSE BUILD The construction has progressed well with St. James and St. Andrew's On-the-Sound volunteers building and setting up the walls for the house on April 21. We will prime paint the interior of the home on June 16, and lastly St. Andrew's volunteers will provide the lunch for 15 workers on June 30. Please contact Frank Dolezal at 399-1823, or Joe Clem at 686-2657 if you would like to help finish the home.

A SOUND FuTURE A Sound Future's steering team would like to thank everyone for their overwhelming support of our campaign. Over the past six months it has been powerful to witness the deep passion and commitment that our parishioners have toward St. Andrew's Onthe-Sound. We truly have a Sound Future here at our church. Over the next few months the finance committee and vestry will be working on a timeline for our project. Once a sequence of events is determined all aspects of the project will be communicated with the congregation.

JUNE CANDLE DEDICATIONS Altar Candles are given in loving memory of Sheila Pigman & Lee P. Vanstory II by Stan & Karen Pigman. Sanctuary Candles are given in memory of Eunice and Ting. We all loved them dearly.

In the early 1830s, Dr. Wright paid for the construction Lebanon Chapel. The chapel was to serve those members of St. J ames who lived in the vicinity of the Greenville, Wrightsville, Masonboro and Middle Sounds neighborhoods, and those who vacationed in the area during the summer months. The land was part of a 320-acre tract known as "Mount Lebanon," named for the surrounding cedar trees that recalled the biblical "Cedars of Lebanon." In 1875 the property was deeded to St. James Parish for the sum of one dollar by the guardian of Dr. Wright's son (Adam Empie Wright). When St. Andrew's On-the-Sound chapel was abandoned. was built in 1923, the little

In 1972, the Rev. Herbert L. Aman, Rector of St. Andrew's Onthe-Sound, met with the Rt. Rev. Thomas H. Wright, Bishop East Carolina (and great, great grandson of the original owner the property now known as Airlie Gardens), to discuss what to do with Lebanon Chapel since vandals had nearly destroyed the property. The mutual feeling was that it should be restored as a living monument to the past, an inspiration for those yet to come, and above all, to the Glory of God. Work began in 1973, and services were conducted by the clergy of St. Andrews On-theSound in the summer of 1974. St. Andrew's still has Sunday morning summer services at 7:30. After 70 years, St. James Parish returned to summer worship at Lebanon Chapel in the year 2000. St. James Parish has two Sunday summer services, 8:30 and ... ""!1!!111 9:30 a.m., as well as special services throughout the year.

Will be meeting June 17 at 5:00 p.m. Hosted by Gloria Meder.

The office will be closed on Fridays until Labor Day. Mon- Thurs 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
