Welcome to St. Andrews
A Thriving Christian Community in Howard County
We invite you to worship with us and into community with us at St. Andrew's. Come, join us, and grow with us in the knowledge and love of God. We hope that you will discover a way to connect to God through our many offerings in life and ministry together
Join us for one of our three Sunday services: 8 am, 9 am or 11:15 am. The 8 and 11:15 services are held at historic Union Chapel, a 19th century worship space set among the towering elms of Western Howard County. The 9 am service is held at our Parish House. The 9 am service offers childcare during worship. Church school and adult Christian formation take place at 10 am, between the second and third services, mainly in the Parish House (our oldest group of youth meet in Union Chapel). All are welcome to worship, where we pray, delve into Scripture, and share the Eucharist (also called communion, or the bread and wine) together.
A workshop for all ages, all denominations
Saturday, October 12 from 4-7pm
followed by a light supper at 7pm.
Spiritual wellness and financial wellness are linked for the Christian person. Perhaps that is why Jesus teaches more about money and possessions than any other topic in the Gospels. Devote a few hours to your spiritual growth and financial health by joining us for a free workshop. No products will be peddled, and no one will ask you for a donation — other than what you are willing to put in the basket to offset the cost of our shared supper. Children and youth can especially benefit from solid Christian teaching that prepares them to be generous and faithful followers of Christ.
Program for Adults
The program for adults will be led by Bruce Rockwell, who spent 20 years in senior management at a bank before becoming a nationally recognized teacher in the Episcopal Church on issues regarding finances and faithful living. The program offers participants time and exercises to explore their approach to finances, continue developing an understanding of faithful practices with finances, and a time of teaching through Bible Study and reflection.
Program for Children & Youth
There will be a concurrent program for children and youth, running in separate tracks based on age, which will teach children how to approach money in ways that will encourage generosity and saving. Through crafts, activities, games, and a short workshop with finance educator and Blogger Sue Rogan (http://pennywiseconsumer.blogspot.com/), children and youth will strengthen their knowledge of living faithfully as they begin to earn money, whether a weekly allowance or a part-time job. Sue lives in the community, teaches money values and money habits, and is a Certified Financial Counselor. She formerly worked in consumer protection.
Workshop is free.
If able, bring a non-perishable donation for a local food pantry.
Supper is a freewill offering; stay and eat, and offer what you can to cover the cost
