40 Days of Prayer Conclusion

  

On Easter morning before the services (yes the Sunrise TOO) we will have all the cards we have received put on a table where people may pick them up.  They will be available all morning and members can get them and take them if they like.  If a person is certain their partner will be in church and wants to meet them face to face, they can come to church early and have a time to give them their greetings.  Anyone whose partner is absent may turn in their cards to us and we will mail them to the recipient on Monday.  We hope people will make personal contact with their partner and actually meet them, but if they are absent or for whatever reason unavailable, then the greeting will get to them.  We will have additional blank cards available for people who didn't bring one or forgot about getting one.  By starting to collect cards early, anyone who will be away is assured their greeting will reach their prayer partner.  Hence the RSVP.  The cards will be put in the little St Andrew's House box that we use to collect pledges.  You may download a copy of the letter in the section below.

Will Not Meet During Holy Week

Bible Study: The Early Church in Context

  • Tuesdays at 6:30 PM and Wednesdays at 10:15 AM.       
  • This one hour weekly Bible study will explore the development of the  early church as described in the book of Acts, and examine in  chronological order the epistles collected  in the New Testament as they responded to the events in early  development of the church. The study will help us get to know more about  James, John, Peter, Paul, Barnabas, Mark, and other early church  leaders. We will learn more about the spread of Christianity from  Jerusalem to Antioch, Corinth, Ephesus, and beyond.
