Kids in Church!
St. Andrew Lutheran Church is a church ...
- whose unity is in Jesus, who gathers us around word and water, wine and bread,
- which believes that God is calling us into the world—together,
- that rolls up our sleeves and gets to work,
- that belongs to Christ,
- that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace.
Liberated by our faith, we embrace everyone as a whole person questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world.
There is a place for you here.
All about Pentecost
Pentecost is the season during which we celebrate God's presence in the world though the Holy Spirit.
In the 10th chapter of Luke Jesus tells a story of the God Samaritan. Of course the Bible never refers to the the Samaritan as "good", that is something we tend to read into it. However, the whole meaning of the parable deals with the question, "Who is my beighbor? The Lawyer (nomokos), by asking "Who is my neighbor?", wants to firm up the boundaries of who is deserving of help. Actually, he is going to prove to Jesus that he (the lawyer) is RIGHT and able to save himself. JEsus shows that grace is a gift to all of us who are underserving. We are the man in the ditch, it is GOd's grace that lifts us up.
While we know that Jesus wasn't in the army our youngsters were able to get St. Paul's message across....Put on the armor of God. The armor would be things like the breast plate of Christ's Righteousness and the helmet of Salvation. Thank you Children's Ministry Director, De Ann Martell and all of the great teachers and helpers who make our Children's Worship ministry so exciting.
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me."
