Saint Andrew’s Calendar

Devotional Word…..

  

“My counsel for you is simple and straightforward: Just go ahead with what you’ve been given. You received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live him. You’re deeply rooted in him. You’re well constructed upon him. You know your way around the faith. Now do what you’ve been taught. School’s out; quit studying the subject and start living it! And let your living spill over into thanksgiving. (Colossians 2:6-7 The Message)


That verse was key to the ministry of Meg Marcrander in her time as our Director of Christian Education. Her constant prayer and focus was to ensure that each of us were discipleFit and growing our relationship with Jesus Christ and with one another.

Over 8 years ago, Emily Harrow joined our Ministry Team as Director of Youth Ministries. For the past 3 years, she has served as Director of Discipleship Ministries building on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ and a mission which ensures that the members of our faith community are engaged in Bible Study.

Now on a strong foundation, she returns to be with her family in St. Louis. She has carved a place in our hearts and lives and has touched the lives, not only of our students, but each one of us who have shared her professional growth and deepened calling as a teacher and mentor in the Faith.

For the past two Sundays, we have shared the fruit of her faithful in sharing Affirmation of Baptism and the recognition of our graduating high school seniors.

In each service, those honored and blessed were literally surrounded at the Altar for a time of prayer and sending to the next stages of their lives. It was both a tear-filled and heart-full time to remember that we are all united in Christ and called to be for each other along the way.

As we move into the summer, we are following the leading of the Holy Spirit to ensure that we will continue to hold close our calling to become witnesses in love and life. Roots ever deeper into the promise that we are forgiven and called to be Christ in the world.

We send Emily, Adam, and Silas with Godspeed and confident that God will provide all that need in times of change.

Watch and pray; be involved and participate in the central life of our congregation through worship and discipleship growth in Christ.

News to Share…

 

Color Emily Harrow’s Farewell Scroll
Stop by the table in the Narthex to sign Emily Harrow’s farewell scroll. And this time we want you to color outside the lines! Because Emily, the Director of Discipleship Ministries, had us coloring posters for Lent and for Advent, it is appropriate that we use those artistic talents to say goodbye. Draw a picture of something you enjoyed, a trip you took with Emily, helping with a fundraiser, participating in Sunday school classes or adult discipleship hours, or just a fancy design. Add a written message to the scroll for Emily, Adam and Silas too.
We also welcome contributions to the Harrows’ “New Life in Missouri” fund. The gift and scroll will be presented at the ministry celebration at 10:45 am on Sunday, June 24.
