Jesus Calls Us…Come and See! Come and Grow! Come and Serve!

Do One Thing

Welcome!

We are glad you have found us!  St. Andrew is all about reaching people with God’s radical acceptance and grace in Jesus Christ to make lives whole.  The journey of faith begins by recognizing how Jesus calls us.

A Christ-follower in the 4th century by the name of Augustine wrote, “Our hearts are restless until they rest in you.”  In the restlessness of his heart, he heard the calling of Jesus.  You might know that same restlessness in your heart.  We know it too.

We have found rest in God and invite you to join our prayer day by day to:
  • See God more clearly in lives and all creation.  All are invited to come and see Jesus in our worship and hospitality.
  • Love God more dearly as followers.  Everyone is invited to come and grow in Jesus through our study and prayer groups. 
  • Follow God more nearly in acts of service.  All are invited to come and serve Jesus through WHO- Winter Hospitality Overflow, our Christian preschool, and Orchard’s Kids Club.

God’s dream for St. Andrew is our vision—

bringing healing and wholeness to lives and all creation.


 

Introduction to SoulCollage® - Monday, April 20, 9:15-11:15 a.m. in the Davis Room.  Pr. Martha and Lori McDonald will lead this month's preschool parents activity.  SoulCollage® is like “scrapbooking for the soul.” The process involves selecting images and assembling them into collages on 5"x8" cards. (Images and supplies are provided.) Various prompts are used to help you reflect on the cards you make and the meaning they hold for you. No artistic talent is needed. The process of making cards is very peaceful and meditative, and reflecting on them helps you address the challenges and struggles of life in a gentle way. Our session will include a brief biblical reflection and prayer.  For more info, contact Pr. Martha at prmartha@salcvan.org or check www.soulcollage.comNOTE:  this is not only for preschool parents - ALL are welcome to join us!

Praying as community - Each Sunday during the season of Easter we will have the opportunity to write/draw our individual prayers on strips of white fabric, either before, during, or after worship.  These will come together, week by week, to form a prayer net under which we will worship together.  You can begin to see how this act of giving "voice" to our prayers and having them come together enhances our liturgy of Easter.
