Opportunities for Growth in the Easter Season

Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for a deeply moving Holy Week and a beautiful, joyous celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord.  Sunday was a day of reunion and hope around Word and Sacrament and wonderful music from our choirs.  We have heard many words of thanks from folks who have not worshiped with us for awhile and from people who were worshiping with us for the very first time.  For all of you who led, served, or worked behind the scenes, many thanks.

Easter is not a day but a season of joyous worship and opportunities for growth.  The adventure continues...

This Sunday Adult Education resumes downstairs in the Jerusalem Room at 9:30 AM as we study the Gospel parallels, comparing and contrasting stories as told by different Gospel writers, while looking at what the differences mean
for them and us.

Looking ahead, Inquirer's Class for those seeking information about St. Andrew's will be held on April 15th and April 22nd . If you or anyone you know is interested in joining St. Andrew's or just learning more about our faith community, please meet me on the above dates at 9:30a.m. in the narthex (church lobby). Reception of new members will be held Sunday, May 6th .
Also, we are calling all women to join us on April 14th at 9 AM as we wrestle with "Overcoming the SuperGal Syndrome" A delicious breakfast buffet will be served followed by music led by our own Soulful Strings.Outstanding  guest speaker Lori Hynson will help you to laugh, learn, and de-stress Come for a delightful morning and bring friends! Please sign up on the  bulletin board in the narthex  or contact the church office to reserve your spot.  Family, friends, and co-workers are encouraged to attend.

In the weeks ahead, we look forward to commissioning our Stephen Ministers, welcoming Pastor K to the pulpit, celebrating Mothers Day, and Confirming several of our young people while celebrating the coming of the Holy Spirit, the birth of Christ's Church in the world, and our mission together.  Continue to pray for the people and mission of St. Andrew's as we journey through the changes and challenges of the months ahead.  See you in church!

Peace,

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, especially those who …

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 …
