This is the first message in our new worship series, “Growing Into God’s Purpose.” It’s often said in church circles that “God doesn’t call the qualified, he qualifies the called.” We’re going to spend a few weeks exploring this idea by working through the story of Jacob in Genesis 25-35.
This week we’ll be looking at the start of Jacob’s story in Genesis 25 & 27, and reflect on how there’s good news in the fact that he seems like last person God would choose to be a part of his mission to bless the world.
Fall Textile Drive – Saturday, October 21 from 9am to 12Noon.
The Mission team will be holding the Fall Textile Drive, on October 21 here at St. Andrew’s. Acceptable donations include clothes, towels, curtains, linens, bedding (NO PILLOWS) socks, underwear, shoes, purses, belts.
This week’s message “Letting Go,” is based on the challenging story of Abraham’s test in Genesis 22. We reflect on why God needed to test Abraham in this way, and how we can remember that everything we have is a gift that comes from God.
This is the fourth message in our ongoing worship series, “Partners in Mission.” This week’s message “More Than We Deserve,” is based on Genesis 18 and 21. We reflect on the good news that God is a generous giver, whose gifts do not depend on us being worthy or deserving.
