Week of March 18, 2018
Brothers and Sisters,
My family and I had a wonderful time on spring break, but it was great to be back with you on Sunday. I'm looking forward to a wonderful and holy observance of Holy Week and Easter, which begins this week with Palm Sunday. But even before that, there's lots coming up around here! Here are the highlights:
- Last of our Lenten Dinner Series Tonight:
◦ 6:00 pm - Evening Prayer in the Great Hall: Simple midweek worship in the Anglican tradition.
◦ 6:45 pm - Dinner and Discipleship - Servant Speakers Series: We're welcoming Lance Olinski of Streetside Showers, who is bringing one of his shower trailers. Come hear Lance's story, learn about this great ministry, and have a delicious dinner with your St. Andrew's friends too.
- This Friday night is our "Walk With Jesus Event." Children and their families will walk with Jesus from Palm Sunday through the Resurrection. Journeys begin at 6, 6:30, and 7. To register for a time, sign-up online.
- Our spring "Blitz the Berms" and Parish Workday is Saturday morning, from 9-11 am or so. If you're helping outside, please bring yard tools to help with. If helping inside is more your style, we'll have projects and supplies ready to go.
- Are you signed up yet for our Educational Seder and 1st Century meal? Next Wednesday, March 28, come to St. Andrew's to taste and learn about the Jewish Passover meal that Jesus shared with his disciples. Following the educational seder, we'll have a delicious first-century style meal together as a parish family. A $5 donation per person is suggested to help cover the cost of the actual meal. RSVP required (email Brandi McSwain).
- This Sunday is Palm Sunday. All the services will be at their regular times, but, we'll be beginning each service outside with the Palm Branches. After the 11 a.m., service we'll be having our final BlessMobile run to Merritt Homes (next month we'll start going to a different site near Burks Elementary, our partner school).
Our Lenten devotional series continues to be powerful and inspiring; see these videos by your fellow St. Andrew's members on our YouTube page or our Facebook page. And don't forget our website, which has the Easter schedule, information about other upcoming events, and recent sermons.
May the Lord's peace and love fill your life the rest of this week.
In Christ, Andrew+
