Greetings St. Andrew's,
We have a lot to look forward to in April, especially upcoming Holy Week as Lent comes to an end and we reflect on Christ’s journey to the crucifixion, his suffering and death, and ultimately the joy of Jesus triumphing over sin and death on Easter Day. I anticipate a lively period of time in our community before summer vacations start to scatter us about. This is also the time of year we may have an increase in newcomers, so let’s all keep an eye out to help newcomers find their way and feel comfortable. My hope is that everyone stepping foot on our grounds senses a feeling of belonging that continues to draw them back to our wonderful community. As the body of our church grows, so will our diversity of relationships, talent, and capacity to support our mission!
