As is our custom on the first Sunday of the month, we will be gathered by the Holy Spirit to celebrate Holy Communion. ‘Taste and see that the Lord is good’ (Psalm 34). If you are joining at home, you are invited to prepare bread and cup before this service. If you are joining in the sanctuary, bring your own bread and cup, or receive a packaged unit as you enter.
This Sunday we arrive in Mark’s gospel at the words of Jesus ‘Whoever is not against us is for us’ (Mark 9:40). What might these words mean for us today?
If you are able and wishing to attend in person, please review the mandatory protocols detailed in the previous post and in the link found under ‘Special Events’ to the right, ‘Re-Opening the Sanctuary’.
This service will be live-streamed and available at https://youtu.be/Y1xSyFmTrNQ – organ preludes will begin around 10:20 a.m. and the service will commence at 10:30 a.m. Other services can be found on the St. Andrew’s Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzEy41z3sqfRm8X_lLfKGUA
