Shifting Gears

 Dear Friends,
    As we enter the month of June with confirmations, weddings, graduations, and vacations posted on the calendar, many also embrace a change of pace for the summer weeks ahead.  Even here at St. Andrew's, the calendar looks a little different as many of our leaders seek rest and renewal for the challenges of the months ahead.  However, our calling to lift up Jesus to the community in Worship, Education, and Service remains throughout the year.
Worship  -
    Thanks be to God for everyone who worked so hard behind the scenes preparing music, communion, food, and fellowship for this past Sunday's confirmation service.  What a celebration!  God's richest blessings to our newly confirmed members:  Ryan Braun, Miles Burger, Nick Griswold, James Kasopsky, Patrick Lewis, Jonathan Mueller, Abby Rissinger, and Jacob Weinberg.  Please keep them in your prayers as they continue to grow in faith as Christ's servants in the world. 
    We hope that you can join us this upcoming Sunday, June 10, as we welcome Pastor K back to the pulpit here at St. A's. It is always a blessing to have him share the Word with us.   Also, keep in mind that starting next Sunday, June 17 (Father's Day), we begin our summer worship schedule gathering each Sunday at 9:30 AM.
Education -
    Vacation Bible School is coming to St. A's June 18-21 from 9AM - Noon for children ages 3-6.  Registration forms are available in the church narthex or by contacting the church office. 
Service -
    Hospitality is needed for Lemonade on the Lawn this summer following each 9:30 Worship.  Pick a Sunday and sign up to serve lemonade / iced tea and cookies (please plan to bring napkins and cups as well) for about 50-60  people.  This is a great way to encourage staying connected as a community during the summer months.  Sign up on the sheet in the narthex or call the church office for available dates. 
    We also need volunteers to help host the Lutheran Charities 2012 Bike Ride which will once again be using St. A's as their home base on Saturday June 23.  We need people throughout the day (registration, serving lunch, and cleanup) but especially have several openings in the early afternoon hours.  Again you may sign up in the narthex or call the church office for available times.
    Finally, keep your eyes open in the weeks ahead for more information about our "Helping Hands" community outreach program.
    God's richest blessings in the summer ahead.  See you in church!
Peace,
Pastor Mueller

Lord's Prayer

Dear Friends,

This Sunday in worship our Gospel lesson is Luke 11:1-13.  In my message, I will be focusing chiefly on this rather strange parable of Jesus.  However, this is also the text where on e of Jesus' disciples says, "Lord, teach us to pray" and Jesus introduces what would become known as the Lord's Prayer.  While this will not be a primary focus on Sunday, I thought I would share with you below a reflection by Christian writer Brian McClaren bringing fresh meaning to a prayer that has become so familiar that, unfortunately, it can become rote and uttered with little meaning or reflection.  I hope that you will find this helpful for your own time in prayer.  And who knows?  It may even show up sometime in a worship service.
A Spoken Version of the Lord’s Prayer
This rendering of the Lord’s prayer uses unfamiliar words and phrasing to help us actually hear its message rather than lapsing into an auto-pilot recitation. You can use it in public worship by having …

Christmas Cantata this weekend

A word of thanks to everyone who worked behind the scenes on this year's Advent Family Night.  What a wonderful evening for God's children of all ages.  A special thank you to our Director of Christian Education, Mrs. Janice Stickley, and members of our Christian Education for coordinating this event.
We hope to see many of you here, along with family and friends, at 5 PM this Saturday night for our Christmas Cantata. 

Join us for a joy filled hour together featuring special music from the choirs of St. Andrew's and Augustus Lutheran Church in Trappe, the Christmas story retold, and beloved Christmas carols sung together.  This is a great way to get into the spirit of the season and an opportunity for those of you who will be traveling or have other commitments on Christmas Eve this year to celebrate with your faith community.  Bring family members, friends, neighbors, or co-workers for this special night together.
Also, mark your calendars for our Christmas pageant on Sunda…

Change of Plans

Dear Friends,

Perhaps you are facing a season of change in your life.  Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that God has made everything "suitable for it's time."  That is to say that God has designed our lives into seasons, but there is a time limit on each one.  Some seasons are wide open doors for our passions and calling and some seasons are closed doors when God calls us to grow professionally, spiritually, or emotionally.  Some seasons are open doors where the changes are obvious: changes in employment, residence, or family life,   Some seasons are closed  doors where change is very subtle as we are challenged to look beneath the surface as we see changes in relationships, perspectives, attitudes, spiritual practices, and better self care.

If you are in an open door season of your life, may God give you the strength, flexibility, and patience to navigate the challenging changes ahead.  If you feel like you are in a closed door season, may you have wisdom and discernment to kno…
