Sermon Series: Miracles

Sermon Series:
Miracles (June 11— July 23)

This will be an eight week sermon series based on the book Grave Robber, by Mark Batterson. We will look at the seven miraculous signs of Jesus found in the Gospel of John, showing how miracles are not just simply acts of the past, but also something He wants to do now. "There are miracles all around us all the time," says Mark Batterson, "but you won't see them if you don't know
how to look for them." (Amazon Review)

Summer Book Study

Summer Book Study with Pastor Jim

The Summer Book Study I have chosen is Left, Right and Christ: Evangelical Faith in Politics. I often talk about St. Andrew’s being a church that lives in the tension of not always agreeing with each other. Here is a great chance for us to have healthy conversations. Let us read together and learn from each other. We will meet on Wednesdays, June 7–July 12 from 6:30—8:00 pm at Beyond Bread.
How can two people have a common faith but different political loyalties? In this updated edition of Left, Right, and Christ, authors D.C. Innes and Lisa Sharon Harper discuss and explore how the Christian faith speaks directly to American politics today, but with different understanding and applications. They address issues like; abortion, healthcare, same-sex marriage, environment, and immigration. (Amazon)
