News from St. Andrew’s

Archbishop Beach calls Church to serve our children and youth
“Not too long ago, I was in a discussion with a woman who shared with me about talking with a teenager in a major city in the U.S. who had never heard the name Jesus!”, writes Archbishop Foley Beach of the Anglican Church in North Ameria.
“Can you imagine a child growing up in Canada or the U.S. and never hearing the name of Jesus? How many children and teenagers live or attend school within one mile of your church? How many of those children and youth are unchurched and do not know about Jesus? Yet, Jesus said, “Let the children come to me.” (Read more...)

St. Andrew’s at Common Ground Saturday, July 18
St. Andrew’s will serve at the Common Ground Free Store in Delaware on Saturday, July 16, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This will be St. Andrew’s first time to serve since the remodeling of the store.

We are especially in need of volunteers and food for this visit, as its summertime and many volunteers and food providers will be on vacation. Also, if you are unavailable in the morning, please consider coming from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. to prepare the store for the next shopping day on the following Tuesday. Please click here to sign up to volunteer and/or provide food. You may also sign up at the church.

The Common Ground Free Store, whose mission statement is “Welcoming the Community to Share in God’s Love and Gifts,”provides free clothing, household goods, books, toys and more to all in need, regardless of their situation. There are no income requirements or guidelines to meet. The store’s philosophy is that everyone is on “common ground.”

When St. Andrew’s serve at Common Ground, we not only provide food for shoppers to have a nutritious meal, but also staff the kitchen, check-in, hospitality, and check-out area, and help with sorting clothes and stocking racks and shelves. The store, located at 193 E. Central Ave., Delaware, is open Tuesdays, from 6 to 9 p.m.; Wednesdays, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Thursdays, from 6 to 9 p.m.; and Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.. Help is always needed on these days, as well.


‘Grow in Faith’ at St. Andrew’s this summer!

Our summer “Grow in Faith” classes for all ages from 10:15 to 11 a.m. on Sundays continue to be a success, and the fun and learning has just begun! Take a look at what’s being offered this summer, and plan to join us as often as you can.

Young Saints Combined Class
In the summer, we combine pre-school aged kids through approximately 6th grade in one class into a VBS-type class, with music, a Bible lesson and other activities. The focus through most of the summer will be on the “I AM” statements of Christ. We encourage middle school students to volunteer to help out or to attend our youth class.

Student-led Youth Bible Study
Out youth bible study during the summer focuses on relevant bible passages that apply to our youth and young adults in today’s culture. Donuts are provided, and college and high school students are invited to join in, as well as mature middle-school students hungry to study and discuss God’s word.

Adult Series
In June, Fr. Will Verhoff is teaching on “The Seven Feasts of God: The Bridge between the Old and New Covenants,” based on Leviticus 23 on June 26. Those who may have missed a session or two, or just want to review, may cick here to download his teaching outlines.

In July, the Rev. Ernie Tracy will teach on “The Psalms — Living and Praying with Jesus.” Through his teaching, Ernie invites you to meet our Lord as we pray and live the prayers and songs of the Psalms, and in August, Fr. Ed Steele will teach on “Faith, Reason, and Tradition: Living as a Christian in a post-Christian world.” Click here for details on these teachings.

Come “Grow in Faith” with us this summer!


Mid-week prayer services for summer announced
The mid-week Prayer Services will be July 13, July 27, August 10 and August 24, from Noon to 1 p.m. in the Sanctuary. “But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.” (Psalm 1:2)


Brats Bash for men and boys August 23

This year’s Dave Cook Memorial Brats Bash, sponsored by the Brotherhood of St. Andrew, is scheduled for Tuesday evening, August 23. It’s never too early to mark those calendars!
More details will be published in “The Net” as we get closer. For right now, please make a note and hold this date for all men and boys of the parish.


Married couples invited to group’s summer picnic
The Celebrate Marriage Small Group will host their annual picnic on Saturday, July 16 after the 5 p.m. service, from 6:30 to around 9:30 p.m. All married couples welcome to attend, and to invite your married friends!

The picnic will be potluck style, and all fun and games, enjoying the fellowship of other married couples who want to celebrate the joy they have found with their spouse. There will be a sign-up sheet at the information desk in the Narthex soon. Watch “The Net” for fall meeting dates, and consider joining this group as they celebrate marriage!

SALT leadership gathering August 28
We invite everyone involved in church ministries to come out for our annual
St. Andrews’s Leadership Touchtone (SALT) conference on Sunday, August 28, rrom 3 to 5:30 p.m. at the church.

This year we have moved to a Sunday afternoon to hopefully accommodate more people who work or have kids’ activities on Saturday mornings.

In the past our emphasis with SALT has been to take time to fellowship and worship with one another, and then spend time focusing on different aspects of leadership. We have been blessed to have Pastor Mike Weaver in the past to encourage things like teamwork and cooperation through improv activities and lessons, but this year are doing something a bit different. We will once again have a light snack and fellowship time, plus a short time of worship, but the main component of the conference will be a hands-on ministry development time.
We plan to break up into smaller groups by ministry, so members can work together on their yearly planning and goals.

We hope everyone can prioritize this one afternoon by marking your calendars now to attend, especially ministry leaders who will help guide their groups through this process!

Click here to register now, and watch for further details at the date gets closer!

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)
