“High Praise”
“Lord, I Need You”



Revelation 21:1-5a

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
‘See, the home of God is among mortals.
He will dwell with them;
they will be his peoples,
and God himself will be with them;
he will wipe every tear from their eyes.
Death will be no more;
mourning and crying and pain will be no more,
for the first things have passed away.’

And the one who was seated on the throne said, ‘See, I am making all things new.’ Also he said, ‘Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.’

    David trusted in his own abilities to overcome this giant of a person. In our Group we are here to overcome the “Giants” of raising a teen.

    We will be exploring popular Bible stories, parables and see how they apply to our lives as young adults.

    We want every camper and every family to be able to go to Spirit in the Pines! Check our openings and contact camp for more info.

    As most of you know, a Transition Task Force was created by the Church Council to prepare St. Andrew for the call of a new Senior Pastor.

    Assist the pastors with distribution of the wine and bread for communion on the first and third Sundays mornings of the month. Training is available.

    We invite you to be a part of our Funeral Reception Team, a rewarding and vital ministry at St. Andrew. Following a funeral, surround grieving families and friends with love and support by providing a comforting meal and warm hospitality.
