On this coming Sunday we will reflect on the great faith of the Canaanite mother who comes to Jesus begging for healing for her tormented daughter. You can read this troubling and powerful story in Mathew 15:21-28. We will also explore Jesus’ humanity and his spiritual greatness as a model for us. My message is titled, “A Mother’s Faith Changed His Mind” (click on title to listen).
On this Sunday before Thanksgiving, we will reflect on how we can nourish our souls and gain strength for living through the daily practice of gratitude and appreciation. Philippians 4:6-13 will be our text. Join us for thanksgiving worship at either of our two services this Sunday, at 8:30 a.m. or 10 a.m. and learn how you can develop a life giving Attitude of Gratitude!
A word from Pastor Ernie –
Throughout Lent we have been exploring the events of the last week of Jesus’ life. Now Holy Week itself is finally here! It begins this Sunday, March 20, with Palm Sunday. On March 24 we will have a special Maundy Thursday dinner & service in the Celebration center at 6:30 p.m. Then on March 27, we will celebrate Easter, News Too Good to Believe! I hope to see you at all of these very special services.
Listen to Pastor Ernie’s message on Palm Sunday, March 20: “The Things That Make for Peace”
We all need some good news, and Christmas is great news! I hope you will join us this Thursday night at 7 p.m. as we celebrate the birth of Christ at our Christmas Eve service of lessons, carols, special music, and candles. My Christmas Eve message is titled,“Pondering All These Things” (click to listen)
Then on Christmas morning at 10 a.m. join us for an informal family worship service.

There will be refreshments and fellowship after both services. This is a great opportunity to invite family, friends, neighbors and co-workers.
Why get up on Sunday mornings for worship? Why is worship important? What does worship do? Come this Sunday to St. Andrew’s for our 10 a.m. worship service and I’ll give you three good reasons. I hope to see you there!
