Upcoming Events

Prayer Loom

During Lent, come share as a Church family with a visual prayer representation at the Prayer Loom. Please visit the Chapel "where prayer and story merge into a multi-sensory manifestation and powerful expression of prayer." Colorful yarn skeins, will be available to weave around the nail heads and through each persons' weavings as you offer your prayers. We hope you will be a part of this shared experience, as individuals, families and a faith community. A special thank you to Phil MacBride for the creation of a beautiful prayer loom. His extraordinary carpentry talent shines in this unmistakable labor of love.

Millennial Bruch Group

Calling all young professionals, all students, and anyone looking for some post-service company: we’ll be gathering right after the 10:00 am service on Sunday, March 25, after the coffee hour, to depart for the Jolly Pumpkin (311 S. Main).

Will You Watch with Me?

Our Lord Jesus asked his disciples to watch with him as he prayed in the garden of Gethsemane. At the end of the Maundy Thursday Eucharist the Blessed Sacrament will be taken in procession to the chapel and placed on the Altar of Repose. Please, sign up to keep watch until 10:00 pm on Thursday, March 29, and from 6:00 am - 12:00 pm on Friday, March 30.

Free CPR Class

The Episcopal Health Ministers is sponsoring a free CPR class on Saturday, April 7, from 8:00 am - 12:00 pm in the Chapel, for anyone who wishes to attend. This class provides information for new certification, as well as a refresher course for those who need it. Participants will also learn how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator) and what to do in an emergency. Please register with the office by Wednesday, April 4.

Church School Announcements


A Nursery for infants and children through the age of 2 years is available during the 10:00 am service, located on the second floor of Parish Hall. Children age 3 - 18 attend Church School from 9:45 am until they join their families during the Children's Entrance Hymn.

Head to Toe Lenten Service Project

The Church School's Head to Toe Lenten service project is seeking donations of personal care and household items for the Hope Clinic in Ypsilanti by Sunday, April 15. All items are appreciated, especially: deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, feminine hygiene products, Kleenex, lip balm, dish soap, and laundry detergent. Leave donations at the Head to Toe Giraffe sign and donation box outside the Morning Glories classroom.

Easter Offering for Kalid

Easter is the second time during the church school year that we ask the children to fill their "treasure boxes" with an offering for our foster brother Kalid of Ethiopia. Children are encouraged to save their coins and bring donations on Easter Sunday to place in the large white cross located in the lobby area.

Music Notes

Hymnal 474: When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

This is one of the most moving texts by that great hymn-writer Isaac Watts. Often called the "Father of English Hymnody" Watts is said to have written more than 800 hymns, many of them both great and well-loved. This intensely devotional poem has both theological depth and personal ardor. It draws us to examine our lives: what we trust in, what we boast of, what we would offer. And it leads us to respond to Christ's love with our own love and devotion. --Donna Wessel Walker

Jesus So Lowly (Friedell)

Harold Friedell (1908-1958) was Organist and Choirmaster at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church on Park Avenue in New York City from 1946 until his death. The music program there held pride of place in the Episcopal Church in the middle of the Twentieth Century. Leopold Stokowski had established it on a firm footing during his tenure in 1905-1906. Friedell, who also taught composition and improvisation in the School of Sacred Music at Union Theological Seminary from 1945 on, accordingly influenced an entire generation of church musicians. --Dennis Powers


Do You Have a St. Andrew's Parking Permit?

We continue to ask that all parishioners place a permit onto the lower left corner of their back window to identify themselves as having permission to park in our lot. Permits are available at no cost from the church office during office hours or after services on Sundays. Vehicles without permits WILL BE TOWED.
