Call to a Holy Lent40 days of Lent: A journey to the Cross
Ash Wednesday on Feb. 18 began the holy journey to the Cross that we call Lent. Lent is a time to put away the cares of the world and to follow our Lord and Savior to Jerusalem, to Calvary, to the Tomb. A time to prepare our hearts, minds, bodies and souls to accept the great sacrifice that Jesus made for us. If we keep a Holy Lent, then the true meaning and joy of Easter permeates our life in fullness, because we have journeyed to the death that is Calvary; the sacrifice that is the Cross. We are thus empowered to the new life of the Resurrection.

In the penitential season of Lent, the Church asks the faithful to lay aside our own concerns and to remember what the price of Easter was and is. The Crucifixion of the only Son of God! Many Christians adopt a four-fold discipline of prayer, fasting, study, and almsgiving in Lent. This year, St. Andrew’s is offering several ways to help you along your Lenten journey.

Lenten Study Program underway

Come & SeeThe 2015 Lenten Study Program began on Tuesday, Feb. 24. This year’s them eis “Come and See: Ordinary people sharing God’s extraordinary Good News.” Once again, the five-week study will be held on Tuesdays. With programs for adults, youth and children, our hope is that families will come together to make this Lent a time of discipleship, fellowship and worship in preparation for Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross, which opened the door to eternal life for us and for all who know him, and choose to follow him and call him Lord.

In Week 1, we examined the Scriptures to answer the question, “What is the Good News?” and in Week 2 we began to discover our personality for sharing the Good News naturally. In subsequent weeks we’ll identify the Good News in our own life; look at how we can share the Good News with those whom God puts in our path; and talk about how we can invite others to “Come and See” God at work in our midst.

The study program is held from 6:15 to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays through March 24. Each evening will begin with a simple supper of soup and salad at 6:15 p.m., followed by a teaching by Fr. Ron Baird, beginning at around 6:50 p.m.. Participants will then break into small groups for discussion and reflection. If you can't make it in time for dinner, please feel free to join use for just the study.

There is also a program for our children, which includes a lesson, music and crafts. Youth participating in Testimony Troupe meet for rehearsal following the evening meal each week. Youth not participating in Testimony Troupe join the adults for the teaching, and break into their own small group for discussion.

Each evening concludes with all ages coming together for a brief time of prayer and worship.

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!

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)
