In challenging times, we’re here with worship that’s right for you.
The coronavirus crisis is challenging churches to respond in new ways to our call to worship. At St. Andrew’s, we’re worshiping online only because of the increasing incidence of COVID-19 in our metro area. We want to do our part to protect our community while still offering God our sacrifice of thanksgiving (Psalm 50:14). Sunday worship is livestreamed and daily prayer is available on Facebook Live at 8 a.m., 1 p.m., and 8 p.m.
Good Book Club Takes Up the Gospel of Mark
Mark is noteworthy for several reasons: Most scholars think it’s the first of the four Gospels, written about 40 years after Jesus’ death, resurrection, and ascension; and it provides much of the source material for Matthew and Luke. It’s also the shortest of the Gospels, and it moves along just as Jesus does in the story – quickly and full of action. And, as it turns out, it’s the book from which we’ll take most of our Gospel readings in the current year of the liturgical cycle (Year B). So, reading Mark will give you a great overview of the perspective on Jesus we’ll be hearing from now through the end of November. We’ll read Mark in its entirety through Shrove Tuesday, Feb. 16
