Join us for Christmas Eve as we celebrate the birth of Christ!
St. Andrew's will observe the Feast of the Incarnation of our Lord at three services on Christmas Eve, at 5:30 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

The 5:30 p.m. service will feature traditional Christmas carols led by our contemporary worship band, and a children’s message, while the 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. services will be traditional services with organ and choir. The 10:30 p.m. service will include some favorite Anglican Christmas Eve traditions, including incense.

All three services will include Holy Communion. Child care will be available at the 8 p.m. service.

With Christmas Eve falling on a Sunday this year, that morning we’ll be offering one service of Holy Communion at 9 a.m. This service, as well as the 5 p.m. Saturday service on Dec. 23, will be quiet services in observance of the fourth Sunday of Advent.

Festival of Lessons & Carols set for Dec. 17
The St. Andrew’s Choir, along with children and youth of St. Andrew’s will present the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols during the Liturgy of the Word at the 9 a.m. service on Sunday, Dec. 17. Last year’s presentation, a first for St. Andrew’s, was enthusiastically received and a wonderful addition to our Advent observance.

While the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is an Anglican Advent tradition that dates back to 1880, Organist and Choir Director Laurie Darke puts a decidedly St. Andrew’s flavor to the service with the involvement of our youth and children. Many of our youth will be reading the lessons, and our children will present a Nativity tableau, bringing alive the Christmas story.

Edward White Benson, later to become the Archbishop of Canterbury, designed the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols in 1880 for use on Christmas Eve in Cornwall, England. In 1918, King’s College in Cambridge, England, began performing the Festival of Lessons and Carols each year, and in the United States, the Groton School in Massachusetts has been performing the festival annually since 1928.
Performances of the Nine Lessons and Carols have since become an Advent tradition throughout much of the Anglican Communion. The festival tells the story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus through nine short Bible readings from Genesis, the prophetic books and the Gospels, interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols and hymns.

Adult discipleship opportunities

Celebrate Marriage Small Group continues “Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage” study
The Celebrate Marriage Small Group continues its study, “Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage,” on Tuesday, Dec. 12, at 6 p.m. in the Parish House Conference Room. All married couples are welcome!

Brotherhood of St. Andrew studying “pivotal players” in Christian history
The Brotherhood of St. Andrew invites all men and boys in the parish to join them for their current study of “Catholicism: The Pivotal Players.” This video series, facilitated by Fr. Ron Baird, takes an in-depth look at the ministries of some of the Church's most influential early leaders.

Participants will discover the places where St. Thomas Aquinas lived, learned, and wrote; visit the countryside where St. Francis gathered a group of friars and revived the Church; see the places where St. Catherine of Siena ministered and prayed; and trek through England to where John Henry Newman and G.K. Chesterton left their mark and sparked an English revival. And through HD footage, they'll marvel at the extraordinary art of Michelangelo, from his David statue in Florence, to the Pietà at St. Peter's, to the Sistine Chapel.

The Brotherhood meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 7:30 p.m. in the Parish House, with their next meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 5. Meetings usually last about an hour and a half.

Sunday Forum looks at “The Eucharist as Biblical Worship”
Fr. Ron Baird is leading a series on “The Eucharist as Biblical Worship” during the Sunday Forum from 10:15 to 11 a.m. in the Sanctuary. He will be looking at the various parts of the liturgy, where they came from, and how understanding their meaning can enhance our worship of God.

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)
