Lent just around the corner!
Although we’re just past Advent, Christmas and the Epiphany, we’re just around the corner from Lent and our preparation for our observance of our Lord’s Crucifixion and Resurrection.
Mark your calendars for the following dates, and plan to join us on our Lenten journey.

Sunday, Feb. 15: Our Young Saints will will “bury” their Alleluias” in Godly Play as a visual reminder that the penetential season of Lent is upon us.

Shrove Tuesday, Feb. 17: Our annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Ash Wednesday, Feb. 18: We will offer two services of Holy Communion with the Imposition of Ashes, at 12 Noon & 7 p.m. Ash Wednesday is a fast day in the Church. Fasting from sunup to sundown helps us keep in mind the plight of those who don’t have enough to eat, and also focuses our attention on the need to be “hungry” for the Gospel.

Tuesday, Feb. 24: Our annual Lenten Study Program begins, and continues 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 for adults and senior high students by Fr. Ron Baird. Participants will then break into small groups for discussion and reflection on the teaching. There will also be activities for middle schoolers and children, and everyone will come back together for a brief period of worship before adjourning at 8 p.m.

Watch “The Net” and our website for further details!


Christmas


Confirmation_Baptism

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.

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!

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.

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)
