Upcoming Events

Marketplace Vacation Bible School

Children are invited to come experience MARKETPLACE 29 AD: Life in Jesus’ Time on June 18-20 from 9:30 am - 12:15 pm.

Our annual Vacation Bible School is a joyful experience that invites children in young fives through fifth grade complete to journey as a family tribe of Israel through the lively setting of a Judean town set in the time of Jesus’ ministry. Crafts, games, synagogue school, storyteller, engaging drama vignettes, song, dance, Bible-time foods and live animal visitors are all the ways children enjoy an engaging and fun Bible time experience. Come be a part of this year’s theme, “Life In Jesus’ Time” when we explore Jesus’ ministry. We partner with our friends from St. Clare’s Episcopal Church, First Baptist, Blue Ocean Faith and our wonderful hosts for over 30 years, First Presbyterian Church. Their beautiful grounds are the perfect place for the start of the summer season.

Bring a friend to this free event.  We would love to see a great turnout from St. Andrew’s so let us know how we can help with any logistic arrangements to make this happen for your children. They will have an amazing time.  Register online at Registration Deadline: June 2

VBS NOT JUST FOR KIDS: There are many volunteer opportunities for middle/high school youth and adults as shopkeepers/crafters in the marketplace, family group leader, games, food preparation, childcare, daily set up/teardown, drama and many more roles. Please contact Carol Andrews-Ferguson for more information and volunteer opportunities.

Music Notes

Hymn 296: We Know that Christ is raised

This new hymn text links baptism’s rebirth to Easter resurrection, displaying the connection between Christ’s being raised, his gift of new life, and the restoration of the universe to glory. No wonder the hymn celebrates our “blazing joy”! The first two verses tell the good news that Christ has overturned death in resurrection and has brought us new life in baptism. The third verse describes the life and work of each member of the Trinity in novel ways. The last verse moves from the beginning of personal life to the worship of the whole universe in a resounding “Alleluia! Amen!” --Donna Wessel Walker

And I Saw a New Heaven (Bainton)

Edgar Bainton (1880-1956) was a pupil of Stanford’s at the Royal College of Music. This morning’s anthem is typical of his choral compositions; he was attracted to late-romantic harmony. --Dennis Powers
