Lenten Mite Boxes for Matthew 24 Initiative
This coming Sunday, April 23, is the last day to turn in Lenten Mite Box donations to benefit the ACNA's Matthew 25 Initiative. If you are using a Mite Box, or a personal check, please remember to put them in the collection basket. If you are writing a check, make sure to add "Matthew 25" in the notes portion so it will be included in our donation to Matthew 25.

St. Andrew’s is pleased to support Common Ground Free Store Ministries in Delaware through our weekly collection of food items and household goods. In addition, the loose offering each week goes to local and international outreach.

St. Andrew’s is pleased to be an Ohio Benefits Bank site! (Learn more...)

Christ has won the victory!
The long journey through the wilderness of Lent is finally over. We have journeyed with our Lord to Jerusalem and on to Calvary. We have felt the anguish of the death of Love in the person of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We have waited in the tomb as the silence of the death we deserve consumed him.

But death has not had the final word! The gates of death and Hell have been broken loose and flung wide open! As the hymn says, “Death is conquered, we are free; Christ has won the victory!”

But the best news is that the Resurrection is not just an event that happened to Jesus some two thousand years ago. It is a victory that empowers us to taste real life. Life in a whole, loving relationship with God our Father and Creator. Life abundant has been bestowed upon us in this life, and we have the promise of more to come in the next.
The great Feast of Easter is not only for this one Sunday. It is for 50 days! A feast for the community of the Resurrection.

We are that community. And it is a feast that will last until the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

Alleluia! The Lord is Risen!
Alleluia! We are Risen!
The Lord is Risen indeed! Alleluia!

Missionaries visit on World Mission Sunday
In that day you will say: “Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.”
— Isaiah 12:4

On World Mission Sunday
St. Andrew’s welcomed missionaries to the Middle East at all three services the weekend of Feb. 18-19, which made this special obseravnce spiritually challenging, prayerfully engaging and practically motivating!

Joel, who is currently in the ordination process with the Anglican Church in North America, was our guest preacher at all three service, and will spoke during the Adult Forum on Sunday.

Joel and his wife Elizabeth were officially accepted as candidates with Interserve Fellowship ( in 2016, and have begun their journey of support-raising. The mission God has given to them is to love and serve Muslims in the Middle East as an extension of God’s great love for all. “His love compels us to love, to bless, to serve and to share our very lives with people who are radically different and sometimes radically opposed to us,” they wrote in their recent newsletter.

Stations of the Cross to be offered Fridays in Lent
Fr. Wil Verhoff will be offering the Stations of the Cross to be prayed by all who attend on Friday evenings during Lent. The service will be held at 6 p.m. in the Sanctuary at St. Andrew’s, with a potluck supper following at 6:30 p.m. in the Gathering Area. If you plan to stay for supper, please bring a dish to share. A sign up sheet for potluck contributions will be at the Information Desk weekly.

New Lectionary brings ACNA closer to complete prayer book
St. Andrew’s is now using the Anglican Church in North America’s new three-year Eucharistic Lectionary during the Liturgy of the Word. In addition, we’re also publishing the ACNA’s new Daily Office Lectionary in “The Net” and on our website ( for those who wish to use the Daily Office during their personal prayer and study time. The College of Bishops has approved the English Standard Version (ESV) for parish use, and for your convenience the Lectionary on our website links directly to the ESV translation on (Read more...)

Come Grow in Faith with us! Grow
Our fall discipleship program for children, youth and adults is in full swing, as together we embark upon a new year of growing in faith through worship, discipleship and fellowship. The theme for the coming year is drawn from 2 Peter: 3:18 — “Grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ!” Our children (toddlers through 5th Graders) will return to their Godly Play classrooms, and our Tweens (6th and 7th Graders) and Youth (8th through 12th Graders) will resume their Bible studies. All of our Young Saints will be exploring stories from the New Testament, each presented in a way that will engage them at their level, and encourage them to know Jesus in a deeper way.

Adults will begin the fall with a teaching from Fr. Ron Baird on what it means to be “One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church,” as we proclaim each week in the Nicene Creed.

We invite you to come “Grow in Faith” with us this fall!

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)
