BOSA

Brotherhood of St. Andrew
A year in Review

Your Brotherhood Chapter was extremely busy in 2017. We were led by Vice Director Larry Bailey, Treasurer Jason McManus, Communication Director David Moller, Chaplain Nate Hyde, and Director Joe Francis.

Here are a few of the activities from this past year- exemplifying our disciplines of Prayer, Study, and Service

PRAYER

This year, we added Morning Prayer to every one of our semi-monthly meetings. We have also added a reflection time in our meetings when we ask our Brothers for prayers for friends and family. We have prayed – out loud – for many of you in our parish family.

STUDY

This past year, we participated in two very interesting, and well-received video bible programs – the 9-session “Stepping Up”, and Rick Warren’s 8-session “You Make Me Crazy”. We also studied the Book of Titus, as well as a short session on Creation, The Fall, Redemption, and Recreation.
