Sunday Fellowship

As we return to in person services, please feel free to greet each other after the service.

 

Fellowship is an important part of our morning. We’d love to get to know you, even as we are masked and maintaining social distance. We have suspended our coffee hour due to the pandemic, but we hope you’ll stay to chat after the service.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prayer and Food Ministry

We offer prayers, meals, and other assistance to support members who are ill, have a new baby, have suffered a loss, or otherwise need help. An email is sent to all members of the group and those who can help with meals sign up for a designated date. If you are providing meals, you will be given information about food allergies, preferences, and restrictions as well as contact information and available dates.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Members of the Prayer Shawl Ministry continued to gather online during the pandemic and are pleased to have once-a-month meetings return.  Some members also choose to knit/crochet at home. The group supplies prayer shawls, baptismal blankets, chemo caps, and pocket prayer cloths to those in need of comfort. These are tangible reminders of God’s abiding love.  Members donate their own yarn, time, and talent to these blessed items.  Beginners can receive coaching from members. All are welcome. For information about obtaining a shawl or joining this ministry, contact Sharon Brooks or the church office. For a recent video of the blessing of prayer shawls during our worship service, click here.  

 

 

 

 

Weekly Book Group

Our book group continues to meet virtually at 11:00 on Wednesdays. Join us for an hour of discussion, closing with Noonday Prayer. All are welcome!

 

This group reads and discusses a wide variety of books about religion, spirituality, and related topics. The books are selected by group consensus and are typically read one chapter or section per week.

 

We’re currently discussing The Dream of God by Vera J. Dozier. On the home page, click on Our Weekly Newsletter “This Week at St. Andrew’s” for updates.

 

Recent titles include: The Universal Christ by Richard Rohr, Love is the Way by Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry, How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi, and The Church Cracked Open by Stephanie Spellers.

Three or four times a year, the women of St. Andrew’s gather casually to connect with each other and socialize.
