2016 Financial Reports as of 1/25/17
INTERIM HEAD OF STAFF “Thank you for giving generously of your time, talent and treasure in support of our ministry and mission. And thank you to all those who are participating in our vision of ‘Extending the Family.’” Dear St. Andrew’s Family, It is an absolute joy to serve with you. I really mean that. We have something special going on here at St. Andrew’s and I am hopeful it is only going to get better in the years ahead. While it is certainly easy to think of the construction and pastoral transition as the defining events of 2016, the reality is there are so many things for which we can be grateful in this past year. The total amount of contributions given in 2016 to fund our operating budget, our “Welcome Home” vision, and the various dedicated gifts that were received is really quite remarkable. And the strategic area in which God has planted St. Andrew’s allows us to have tremendous capacity to fund Kingdom work beyond the reach of our own community. There is nothing more exciting than to see your generosity give expression to God’s vision of transforming lives and shaping this community for Christ. Thank you for giving generously of your time, talent and treasure in support of our ministry and mission. And thank you to all those who are participating in our vision of “Extending the Family.” A home is at its best when it offers hospitality to others. As a result, we are seeing new churches planted in Africa (Kenya and South Africa), our digital online and mobile community reach new places we never imagined, and nearly 100 homeless children find a home through our partnership with Project Hope Alliance.
This report is filled with information, milestones, pictures and your stories of how we are fulfilling our mission of “following Jesus Christ to lead lives that reveal God’s goodness.” God is alive and on the move here in this community. Please make an effort to see the meaning behind the information and pictures provided in these pages. Each milestone, description, or picture describes a human soul and the good work of God in a person’s life, here, near and far. As our Pastor Nominating Committee officially begins their work of discernment in calling our next Lead Pastor, we have a tremendous opportunity to embody our mission and demonstrate our REAL values in doing so. It is truly a joy to be a part of what God is doing here at St. Andrew’s. I hope reading this Annual Report is as joyful an experience for you as it has been for me. And I trust it will embolden you to have hopeful anticipation for all the good things God has planned this year. Serving together,
Shawn Reilly Interim Head of Staff

OUR CHURCH LEADERSHIP
DIGITAL MINISTRY UPDATE
GATHER Christmas and Easter
Participation in worship grew 4% in 2016. Here are the 6 sermon series we walked through together.
Attendance increased 5% in 2016!
In “Second Nature,” we encountered the spiritual power of habit, and how routine acts of prayer, worship and study combine to affect meaningful life transformation. In the “Neighboring,” series we learned that revealing God’s goodness is as simple as engaging in everyday acts of kindness and love toward those God places around us. In the sermon series, “Living Beyond Myself,” we learned how God’s work in us overcomes the obstacles that bar us from living the abundant life that God offers in Jesus. In the sermon series, “Pardon Our Dust,” we discovered that the good work that God is beginning in us will come to completion, and how our flaws reveal His strength. In the sermon series, “Augmented Reality,” we learned calling on God and being attentive to the presence of the Holy Spirit and its power to shape us. In the sermon series, “His Kingdom Will Never End,” we explored how our citizenship in the Kingdom of Heaven transforms the focus of our celebration at Christmas.

CREATING SPACE TO BELONG PRAYER Heavenly Father, You have called us to love You, and equally as important, love one another. May our worship services only be as great as our service to our brothers, sisters and neighbors. As we enter into 2017, unite us in worship, in Spirit, in Truth, in Word and in deed. May we know that because we belong to You, we belong to each other. In the name of Jesus we pray, amen.

Life Groups “In today’s world, there’s not much trust in anything. It’s just not there. And so it’s important knowing you have a handful of people that you can communicate with from the depths of your heart and know that they care about you, and that the Lord cares about you, and what you say stays within the confines of your group.” - Ruth

“I was taught some techniques to use in prayer, and the next thing I knew, it was just me and Jesus…he answered my prayers and took away my distraction. I got so much out of the my first Half-Day Spiritual Retreat, that I can’t imagine missing any of the others.” - Tracy “These retreats provide protected, designated time with Christ. Without the structure of this retreat, it’s difficult to listen to God. The half-day retreats make help make time with Christ a possibility and a priority.” - Marcus
CREATING SPACE TO BELONG PRAYER Welcoming God, my prayer is that we will become people who confidently invite, welcome, and love anyone to our tables and that we will have more and more opportunities to share time, meals, and the good news of the Gospel with our friends, family, neighbors and colleagues.

Quote from Waverly
“Before joining Refuge junior year, I hadn’t been involved in a youth group since middle school. During that time, I think I lost motivation for Jesus and I questioned the point a lot. I now realize that the big thing I was missing in my life was a sense of community. Refuge has given me so many friends that I will cherish forever. Refuge has taught me that Jesus isn’t just in church, but he is everywhere in my life. Each time I go to Refuge I am given the opportunity to connect with community and grown closer to God as I reflect on my week, talk to God about anything that is on my mind, and learn new things about God and life.”
Quote from Tracy
“It’s so nice to see our children with a sense of purpose and faith in their lives thanks to St. Andrew’s and the youth program. Week after week the sense of excitement, level of communication, kindness to others, friendship development and the anticipation of attending the youth program has been comforting to witness.”
CREATING SPACE TO BELONG PRAYER Pray for more adult leaders to support the growth of all our areas of ministry. Our goal is to have one leader for every 5 kids/ students and since we are continually growing, we are always in need of more leaders! Pray that we better engage the parents of our students, coming alongside and supporting them as they disciple their children.
BUILD Tuitions Parent Child Serves
To create a space to belong for young moms to connect with other moms, we will bring back Monday Summer Playdays for 7 weeks.
To meet the needs of our parents and preschoolers we will start for the first time a summer preschool program.
WATCH (after school ministry) Serves
Our after school program kids partnered with KidWorks and provided 75 gifts for Christmas.
Wonderful Weekdays Serves

CREATING SPACE TO BELONG PRAYER We pray that our tuition families will feel that our campus is a place to come and experience Godâ€™s love through connections with the church body of believers.

CREATING SPACE TO BELONG PRAYER 16
Dear Heavenly Father, You know and see the physical and spiritual needs of everyone. Help us to see others as You do and invite them into our hearts, homes and church. May others see Jesus in us as we extend to them Your grace, love and compassion. Give us generosity and humility as we use what You have given us to care for Your people. May there be no needy among us, may we all experience the spiritually abundant life You promise, and may You receive all the glory. In the loving name of Jesus, Amen!
