Missionaries to visit on World Mission Sunday, Feb. 19
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

The second Sunday before the end of Epiphany is World Mission Sunday, which this year is Feb. 19. St. Andrew’s will welcome missionaries to the Middle East at all three services this weekend, making this special day spiritually challenging, prayerfully engaging and practically motivating!

Joel, who is currently in the ordination process with the Anglican Church in North America, will be our guest preacher at all three service, and will speak during the Adult Forum at 10:15 a.m. on Sunday.

Joel and his wife Elizabeth were officially accepted as candidates with Interserve Fellowship (www.interserveusa.org) 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.

On Feb. 18 and 19, they hope to have opportunities to share more about their future ministry with us.


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 (standrewspolaris.org) 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 BibleGateway.com.

St. Andrew’s joins AmazonSmile program

St. Andrew’s has joined the AmazonSmile rewards program. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop at AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers.
There is no cost to charitable organizations or to AmazonSmile customers. The shopping experience is identical to Amazon.com with the added benefit that the AmazonSmile Foundation, a 501(c)(3) private foundation, will donate to the charitable organizations selected by customers. (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!

Saturday Service
Holy Communion @ 5 p.m.

Sunday Services
Holy Communion @ 9 a.m. & 11:15 a.m.

“Grow in Faith” Discipleship
Sundays from 10:15 to 11 a.m.

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)
