The Bible is full of stories of ordinary men and women who are called by God to do extraordinary
Faith is something that continues to grow throughout one’s life. It is rooted in the love of God and is nourished through regular worship and study. One of the great gifts of the church is that we can grow together with other followers as we stretch one another’s minds and hearts in community.
Make spiritual growth one of your goals this new school year and join one of St. Andrew’s adult classes. There’s a chair waiting for you!
READ THE BIBLE IN 365 DAYS St. Andrew will launch a Bible-in-a-Year reading project this fall, encouraging all who are interested to undertake this new spiritual practice. We'll be using a special New Revised Standard Version of scripture that divides readings into 365 sections and provides ideas for meditation and prayer each day. People can participate individually, or they can sign up to be a part of some new small groups that will begin this fall, too. Stay tuned for more details
Rooted in Love; Growing in Gratitude
Picture the biggest, most magnificent tree that you’ve ever seen. Its roots probably grow four to seven times wider than its crown, and they can grow as deep as twenty feet into the ground. Why? The roots of trees bring most of the nutrients for life into the trunk, branches, and leaves.
In some ways we are like that tree. Our very being draws sustenance from the limitless pool of God’s love. Nourishing love is always there, ready for us, but if we are to access it, our roots need to grow deep and wide. They are fed by worship, by prayer, and by study.
Are you ready to grow some deeper, wider roots this fall?
Rally Day, the traditional kick-off for fall programming at St. Andrew, offers many opportunities for just this sort of growth. Our theme is “Rooted in Love; Growing in Gratitude,” and we hope that the entire St. Andrew family will join us to start a new year of learning together.
