Church School Announcements

2014-15 Church School

Church School is under way! Missed registration? It's never too late to join! If you have any questions or would like to register, please contact Carol Ferguson, Director of Children and Youth Ministries.

Church School Day and Open House

The entire parish is welcome to join the Church School for our annual Open House on Sunday, October 26 at 11:30 am. Please visit the classrooms, meet the dedicated teachers and learn about our program. Special treats and refreshments of the autumn season are for the sharing in fellowship with family and friends.  

Our Young Adults in the Church (YAC) will be starting this special day with a YAC Liturgy at both the 8:00 and 10:00 am services. Members of the YAC class undertake most roles in the liturgy and have prepared the sermon.  This is their opportunity to thank the parishioners for their support, to share their spiritual experience and learnings, and be welcomed by the congregation into their adult ministries as stewards in the life of the parish.

A special Pilgrimage 2014 video presentation follows the 10:00 am service in the Chapel.  Members from YAC will be on hand to answer questions and share more moments of how their Pilgrimage and other experiences have impacted them and their faith journey.   The video runs continuously, so please join us at any time.

Guest Teachers Needed

Faith formation is a process of discernment. The Church School and Journey to Adulthood is interested in sponsoring guest teachers to share their stories. The youth groups in particular are eager to hear about your passions, your spiritual journey, an epiphany, or your outreach initative.

Please contact Carol (663-0518 ext. 202, caferguson@standrewsaa.org) if you would like more information on how your experience can provide a meaningful message to our children and youth.

Music Notes

Hymn 377: All People that on Earth do Dwell

Do any of us not know and love this hymn? It is sung around the world; it is one of very few hymns shared by the hymnals of every English-speaking denomination. This hymn’s words are the only text we still use from the Elizabethan psalm book, and its tune is the original one. The text is a paraphrase of Psalm 100; that is why the tune is known as “Old 100th”; note that it’s been “Old 100th” since the 1640s. The tune, French in origin, is simple and dignified, yet never stodgy. It asks for full-throated singing to support our full-hearted worship --Donna Wessel Walker
