This Sunday - Thanksgiving Potluck

Thanksgiving Pot Luck Dinner: This Sunday November 18 @ 6PM
Downstairs in St. Andrew's Hall

We are once again celebrating Thanksgiving with our faith community on the Sunday night before Thanksgiving and we will do it around a meal.  The meal will be about an hour in length and will include songs, prayers of thanksgiving, scripture, and a brief reflection.  This is the fifth year we are hosting this celebration in St. Andrew's Hall and a meal we have come to treasure as a faith community.

 If you have not already done so, please let us know quickly how many people will be attending (family and friends welcome) as well as whether you are planning to bring a salad, an entrĂ©e item, and / or a dessert.  You can e-mail this information to Lynette in the church office (lbecattini@standrewslutheran.com).  

PS - Our Outreach Committee continues to collect coats and gloves (all sizes) and boots (adult men sizes) for our friends on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota (We have take numerous mission trips there and hosted a group here in summer 2017).  If you have not had a chance to bring donations on a Sunday, they can be brought this night as well)

"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, and his mercy endures forever."  See you Sunday!

Always Reforming

"This life therefore is not righteousness, but growth in righteousness, not health, but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise.  We are not yet what we shall be, bit we are growing toward it, the process is not yet finished, but it is going on, this is not the end, but it is the road.  All does not yet gleam in glory, but all is being purified." - Martin Luther

Join us this Sunday as, with favorite hymns, music from St. Andrew's Brass, and special music from our choir,  we celebrate the the Reformation,, giving thanks for Martin Luther and church reformers who continue to refocus the church's attention on the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.  The readings for this Sunday: Jeremiah 31:31-34, Psalm 46, Romans 3:19-28, John 8:31-36.  Let us continue to open our eyes, ears, and hearts to the Spirit's presence among us as we continue to see reformation in our churches, communities, and our daily lives.  And let us give thanks for the gift of faith that sustains and strengthens us every step of the way.  For those of you who are unable to join us this Sunday, continue to pray for our mission together as people grounded in faith and growing in service.  I am so grateful for the incredible generosity and grace of so many of our members, for the ways that you encourage one another, and for  the ways that you embody Christ'a grace and healing power.  It is truly a privilege to serve among you.  Exciting and challenging times ahead!  See you in church!

Peace,

Pastor Mueller

This time together may include individual conversation, prayer, and blessing as well as photo ops.  Our dog friends will also receive, according to wishes of their owners, treats and lots of love and attention from Pastor and our youth. This is also a great opportunity to meet new people in the community and some very special members of their family. – small animals should be in containers / cages and dogs should be leashed.   See you Sunday!

Dear Friends,

Our Church Council is pleased to announce that Nicole Kruvczuk will be joining the staff of St. Andrew's as our new Director of Christian Education.  Nicole comes to us with a education background, teaching fourth grade at Redeemer Lutheran Elementary School in Philadelphia and through multiple volunteer positions during her time at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in King of Prussia  Since joining St. Andrew's, she has been involved with multiple musical groups and Christian Education programs. She has taught Sunday School for three years, has assisted with Vacation Bible School, and has also served on the Christian Education Committee.  Nicole's start date is October 1st.  Please join us in congratulating Nicole on her new role and supporting her as she begins her work to lead our Christian Education program.    
We are blessed to be back with our regular Saturday / Sunday Worship Schedule.  October will soon be upon us and with that month comes the start of our Confirmation program, youth events, Men's Breakfast, and our Annual Blessing of the Animals.   We continue to invite new participants to join us in Adult Education on Sunday mornings, our Shannondell Bible Studies, and  our Lunch Bunch Bible Study on Thursdays.  There are also several opportunities through  our Social Ministry and Outreach teams to make a real difference in the communities we serve.

Please pray for Nicole, our entire staff, and our many volunteers that through our hearts and hands and voices many would come to know and grow in Christ's amazing grace.  See you in church!

Peace,

Pastor Mueller
