Join the Maunday Thursday Observance

seder last supper 18 400Holy Week is coming sooner than you think! St. Andrew is planning to celebrate Maundy Thursday with a Seder Dinner:
Date: March 29th
Time: 6:00 pm

We'll re-enact a simple Jewish Seder dinner with the help of twelve apostles and some of our children and youth. Then we'll enjoy Brett Margraff's cooking! Lamb Shepherd's Pie [with mac and cheese as an alternative], salad and apple dessert are planned.

Please join us as we attempt to walk with Jesus through the last week of his life. We'll eat together, take communion together around our tables, and pray together. In anticipation of Good Friday we'll prepare the sanctuary, altar and worship area, drape with black and a lay a large wooden cross on the ground.

Please sign up Sunday and plan to support the Family Supper Table with a donation that evening.  View the flyer.

Financial Peace University

Is it for You?

financial peace quote 400w About Debt: Paying down debt is the first step to "financial peace," according to Dave Ramsay. You start with the card that has the lowest balance. Then you move on to the next one, rolling over what you used to pay for the first onto the second. Thus, the debt snowball is born....and you see yourself actually making progress toward getting out from under the burden of debt.

You take charge of your money, so it doesn't have you by the throat!

Having a Budget: You might think that creating a budget and sticking to it would be confining.....that it would feel BAD....but my experience is that it gives a kind of freedom I had never known in relation to money! Bishop Jim and I feel as if Dave Ramsay's Financial Peace University changed our lives. And we think it might change yours, too.

Whatever stage you are in from 20's to already retired, it is NEVER TOO LATE to learn how to devise a plan in relation to your money and to learn how to follow it.

With Dave Ramsey’s class Financial Peace University, you CAN take control of your money and start planning for your future. Check out the registration page if you’re interested in learning more about the class!

Because we’re offering it at St. Andrews just for you starting March 8th.

Dates: March 8th - April 3rd
