Advent at Saint Andrew

An Advent Message from Saint Andrew Lutheran Church        In this season of joy and thanksgiving, it is

   proper to reflect on the year of ministry shared

   together through Saint Andrew.  Simply put, we

   are grateful.   

       While it would be impossible to list all of the

   many blessings that occurred through our lives

   together - this is an attempt to say, "thank you," for

   the ways in which you have shared in the mission

   and ministry of Saint Andrew Lutheran Church. 

(To view the message, click on the image above.)

     The prayer of Advent is "Stir up your power, Lord Christ, and come!"  May Christ stir up in your heart the knowledge of how much God loves you.

     Wishing you warmth and peace in Christ,


Pastor Craig Swenson                      Pastor Jenn Collins
