What an incredible scene on Sunday! In addition to the usual busyness of worship and Christian Education, adults were gathering for education opportunities, a First Communion Workshop, and a college planning seminar. In the meantime, a large group of scouts were gathering in the narthex getting ready to lead us in worship and fellowship. The Spirit was alive and well this past Sunday as we were challenged to take some risks, get out of our comfort zones, and trust that God will give us what we truly need.
The adventure continues as Lent rapidly approaches. Please join us on March 9 for Ash Wedneday Services. There will be a noontime devotion with imposition of ashes as well as a Service of Holy Communion at 7:30 PM. On the First Sunday of Lent, our Outreach Committee will be sponsoring a luncheon in St. Andrew's Hall immediately following our 11 AM Service. This Gathering will have the feeling of a school science fair. No speeches but an opportunity to enjoy lunch and conversation with one another, followed by a chance to browse at various displays describing the various committees and groups of our congregation. This is a great opportunity as we begin Lent to discern where God may be leading you in this faith community. Representatives from the various groups will also be present should you have any questions. Bring family and friens and join us on March 13th.
Last, but certainly not least, do not miss St. Andrew's production of the musical "Godspell" this Sunday at 3PM in the sanctuary. Again bring family and friends. If you make a last minute decision to not come, you will be very sorry. The stories you will hear from the people of St. Andrews who did attend will leave you kicking yourself. Come see over 60 members of your church family perform alongside our talented five piece band. Free food and fellowshiop as a bonus. Mark it on your calendar.
Please keep the people and mission of St. Andrew's in your prayers as we lift up Jesus in worship, education, and service. See you in church!
