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!
Pastor Mueller

Opportunities for Growth

Dear Friends,       There are several learning opportunities coming up in week ahead that I wanted keep on your radar.   - "Aslan on the Move" :  This Sunday (downstairs in Jerusalem Room)  at 9:30 AM we gather together for a presentation / discussion based on Christian themes found in the C.S. Lewis classic, "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe."   This gathering will continue through November 24.  Anyone from high school students to senior citizens are welcome to attend.  Join us and be enriched in faith.    - "Lunch Bunch Bible Study" - We gather each Thursday at noontime in St. Andrew's Hall to look a little deeper at the assigned bible texts that will be proclaimed the upcoming Sunday.  We provide coffee and printed out texts.  You are free to bring Bibles and a bagged lunch if you wish.  People who rarely take part in Bible Study have become a part of this group and have found it very helpful in their walk of faith.

An Easter Prayer

Holy and Living God,   You continue to confound  our expectations and surprise us with your redeeming power in our lives.  Come among us, risen Lord.  Reveal yourself to us that we may know with confidence that nothing in all creation, not even death, can separate us from your love.  In Jesus' name.  Amen .   A word of thanks to all of you who offered your hearts and hands and voices to a deeply moving Holy Week and a joy filled celebration of the Resurrection.  It was exciting to see an increase in attendance at special services throughout Lent and Holy Week this year, especially among those who are newer to our faith community. Many hearts were touched and lives were lifted up through the celebrations of this past week. We are truly blessed. Continue to pray for those who were unable to be with us on Sunday, the sick, the struggling, the hospitalized, the homebound, and the dying.  Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world, especia

Thanksgiving Greetings

Dear Friends, As many of us prepare for Thanksgiving Day and the weekend ahead, I want to wish you a truly blessed celebration.  Many of you will be gathering with loved ones and, while likely eating way too much food (Enjoy!),  offering thanks for God's abundant blessings.  May your joy be full and overflowing tomorrow and throughout the holiday season ahead. However, let us also remember that there will be others for whom this festive season will not be experienced with the joy of abundance, nor surrounded by family and friends.  Many thanks to those of you who continue to reach out to bless the homeless and hungry of our communities at Thanksgiving and throughout the year to make a difference in lives that are hurting. The weeks ahead can also be a time of great sorrow for those who are grieving the death of a loved one.  Take time to reach out to those experiencing loss, honoring boundaries and their desire to take a step back from festivities when needed, but
