Confirmation & Baptisms
What a wonderful morning we on Sunday, Nov. 16, as Bishop Peter Beckwith, assisting bishop in the Anglican Diocese of the Great Lakes, preached and celebrated Holy Eucharist at our three services, administered the sacrament of Confirmation to eight members of our parish, and baptized twin baby brothers! Blessings were abundant!

2014 Children’s All Saints Procession
Every year on the Sunday closest to Nov. 1 — All Saints’ Day — children of St. Andrew’s are invited to come to church dressed in their Halloween costumes for the annual All Saints Procession. They then hear Fr. Ron Baird talk about the true meaning of All Hallows’ Eve; the significance of All Saints’ Day; and the wordly struggle between good and evil that will ultimately culminate in the coming again of our Lord Jesus Christ who will usher in the Kingdom of God.

‘Slow Down Before Gearing Up’ for the holiday rush on Nov. 22
The holiday rush is coming. Will you be ready for it spiritually? The “Slow Down Before Gearing Up” Day of Prayer will be just the time to quiet yourself with God in order to call on His strength and to prepare spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically for having a stress-free and Christ-centered Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas. The St. Andrew's Prayer Ministries Team, which is coordinating the Day of Prayer, is adding onto the format from last year. There will be workshops on:

  • Managing Holiday Stress
  • Family Prayer Time
  • Advent and Christmas Prayers in the Book of Common Prayer, and
  • Being Alone with God and His Word.

The Day of Prayer will be Saturday, Nov. 22, at St. Andrew’s. Beginning at 1:30 p.m., there will be a choice of two classes, followed by the other two at 2:30 p.m. Immediately following is a hymn-sing at 3:30 p.m., and the prayer service at 4 p.m. Sign up sheets for the classes are in the Narthex. Come meet God and get focused, before having to meet the world!


A Thanksgiving feast for Common Ground
St. Andrew’s will serve its annual Thanksgiving Feast at the Common Ground Free Store on Nov. 22, the Saturday before Thanksgiving. We are looking for cooks and bakers to help provide turkey breasts, mashed potatoes, dressing, vegetables, rolls, cranberry sauce, pies, hot dogs and buns, and lemonade. We know this starts a busy time of the year, so if you wish to contribute but don't have time to cook or bake, we are also accepting monetary donations.

We also need volunteers to help in the store on Nov. 22. Please click here to sign up to volunteer, or to provide food.


Harvest Festival Left Harvest Festival Right

 

A bountiful Harvest Festival!
A perfect fall day provided the backdrop for our 4th Annual Harvest Festival and Rummage Saleon Saturday, Oct. 11. We celebrated the bounty of God’s harvest by gathering for some great fellowship, ministry, and service to our community. This year we welcomed more folks than ever before to our festival, which featured “Calling of Levi,” our contemporary worship band; 104.9 The River; and a hayride, pumpkin patch, food and games for all! A special feature was an appearance by Silver and Natasha, two of the alpacas from Circle G Alpaca Farm of Alexandria. Thanks to Jeff Schramm for bringing these two crowd pleasers!

Class 301: The Next Step in your Spiritual Growth
This November, discovering how God SHAPED you to serve him in the Church and in the world. “Class 301: Discover Your SHAPE For Ministry,” will be offered in two sessions on Tuesday, Nov. 11 and Tuesday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. at the church. Joe Enneking will be the facilitator.

In Class 301 we'll help you identify your unique SHAPE for ministry, and discover:

  • the Spiritual Gifts God has given you to help build up your church family and reach out to the world with Christ's love;
  • the passions he has implanted in your Heart that might inspire you to serve his people;
  • how you might use the natural Abilities with which you have been blessed in service to God;
  • how your Personality uniquely qualifies you for particular ministries; and
  • how God can use the Experiences in your life — the painful as well as the positive — to minister to others.

You'll complete a Personal Ministry Profile, which is a detailed discovery tool that helps reveal how God wants to use someone with your SHAPE to serve his Church and others in need. And after the class you'll be encouraged to schedule a follow-up SHAPE Discovery Session to talk one-on-one with a ministry discovery guide about your Personal Ministry Profile. Your guide will review opportunities for ministry at St. Andrew's, and help you determine where God might be calling you to serve him and make a lasting impact for his kingdom. Class 201 is a prerequisite.

It’s time to start filling our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes!
Operation Christmas ChildNational Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child is Nov. 17-24, which means we need to return our shoeboxes to the church no later than Nov. 16. The world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child, uses gift-filled shoeboxes to share God’s love in a tangible way with needy children around the world. For more information on how to pack a shoebox, including gift suggestions, please see the display in the Gathering Area, or click here.

Barbara Girard, who coordinates St. Andrew’s participation in Operation Christmas Child with her small group, is asking for donations of shoeboxes this year, as our current supply of boxes provided by Operation Christmas Child is running low, and shipping costs to order more are high. Boxes may be wrapped, but lids must be wrapped separately. Your empty shoeboxes may be placed on top of the mailboxes in the Gathering Area, or given directory to Barbara on Sunday mornings. You filled shoeboxes may be place in the Gathering Area near the Operation Shoebox display.

Since 1993, Samaritan's Purse has collected and delivered more than 113 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more that 150 countries through Operation Christmas Child. This year, Samaritan's Purse hopes to collect enough shoebox gifts to reach another 10 million children, as together we seek to help them know and follow Jesus Christ.


Epic_Left_2
Rally Sunday kicks off an EPIC year!

St. Andrew’s celebrated Rally Sunday on Sept. 7, and unveiled a new theme for the coming year. EPIC stands for “Every Person Involved in Church,” and our goal is to help every member of our parish family discover how God is calling them to serve him in our church and in our community, and to help them connect with those ministries and their fellow parishioners. Click here for more photographs of Rally Day festivities!

 

Come and See
Cross Andrew was a simple fisherman, called by God to do a great thing ... to follow Jesus and tell others about him. Here at St. Andrew’s, we embrace Andrew’s calling as our own, and believe our name reflects our mission of “transforming the world through Christ — one heart at a time.” We are excited to offer our community a new Anglicanism for the 21st century — an Anglicanism that embraces Biblical truth, and proclaims the uniqueness of Jesus the Messiah, the only Son of God who has come to redeem the whole world through the power of his transforming love.

We have found the Messiah! Come and see! (John 1:41)
