Blessing of the Animals

Join us this Sunday October 2nd in our outdoor chapel area (across parking lot from main entrance) at 9:30 AM.  Family and friends (especially the furry kind) are encouraged to attend.  (This is part of the commemoration of St. Francis of Assisi in churches around the world)  "Well mannered" pets should be on leashes or in cages.  There is plenty of room in chapel area and also on the lawn above to spread out for a short service of thanksgiving followed by individual blessings of pets.  If you have school age children who want to be part of this brief service, you as parents are responsible to get them to their Sunday School classes.  While I will need to return to class before 10 AM, you are welcome to hang out with one another or take a walk somewhere else.
This is a great opportunity to meet newer people to our faith community or perhaps meet up with long time St. Andrew's folk with some very special members of the family.  Looking forward to Sunday.
Peace,
Pastor Mu…

Fall Season Underway

Dear Friends,  As many of of us adjust our schedules with the beginning of a new school year, so St. Andrew's adjusts to the routine of our program year.  This Saturday we return to our regular weekly service of Holy Communion at 5 PM.  This service is more intimate and little less formal with more spoken liturgy and monthly appearances by our acoustic group.   Begin to think about family members, friends, and neighbors who could benefit from Saturday worship.  We also return to our regular worship schedule on Sunday mornings as well.
8:15 AM – Traditional Worship - Includes a commemoration of those lives impacted by the events of 9/11 fifteen years ago.

11 AM- Kick Off Sunday "Lost….but now found" A simple and joyous worship gathering,including songs with our Sunday School children and youth, guided liturgy, and an interactive message as we give thanks to God for his amazing grace and love in our lives. This service, designed for additional young children…
