“Make me to know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths.” Psalm 25:4

FAITH FORMATION AT SAINT ANDREW

When a person is baptized at Saint Andrew, we pray for the Holy Spirit to stir up a “spirit of wisdom and understanding.” One of God’s greatest gifts to us is the opportunity to be curious.   Through intentional faith formation and the study of God’s Word, we strive to create a community of trust where questions are honored, doubts are shared, and faith grows over time.  The Lutheran tradition is rich with resources that can help us to deepen our sense of understanding for a life of faith that is enriched by the voices of scripture, reason, tradition, and experience.

UPCOMING EVENTS - PLEASE JOIN US!

ADVENT RETREAT
Saturday December 8, 8:30 am – 2:00 pm
Waypost Camp on Mission Lake, Hatley

How does being a baptized child of God shape your life?  What would you say if someone asked “What do you believe?”  Openly sharing faith can be difficult if you do not feel confident in your response.  This advent retreat is being held in the cozy lodge at Waypost. Come, sit by the fire, share a meal and make new friends as we explore this topic together, growing our understanding of the central things we believe as Lutheran Christians.  Pr. Jenn will lead group conversation,  bible study, time in creation, reflection exercises and silent moments. Register online by clicking here or stop by the Information Desk in the Narthex at church. Please register by Monday, December 3rd. Carpooling may be available if interested.  Cost is $15 for lunch and materials.
