Traditionally one of the tasks of interim ministry is to strengthen ties with the congregation’s denomination. And while Saint Andrew has strong ties with the region, it is helpful from time to time for congregations to pause and remember their history and core beliefs. And since so many of Saint Andrew’s members come from other denominations, this may be an opportunity for some members to learn more about the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
Eastertide is a 50 day season that gives us an opportunity to rejoice and experience what it means when we say Christ is risen. It’s a time when we remember our baptisms and how we, as the Church, are called to carry on Jesus mission of restoring wholeness to a broken world.
Lent is a journey and the starting point of that journey is wherever we are with God. We hope that, wherever your starting point is, that you will join us as we journey towards the hope of Easter!
