We believe for many Holy Week becomes a window into God’s love for us. Please join us in the sanctuary as we walk through Jesus’ last week starting with Jesus’ Triumphal Entry on Palm Sunday, Last Supper on Maundy Thursday, Crucifixion on Good Friday, and then His Resurrection on Easter. All of us have friends, neighbors, family members and coworkers who are longing for more meaning in their lives. Please pray and listen for whom you might invite to go on this spiritual journey with you during Holy Week.
THE LIFE OF JESUS: A LENTEN SERIES
During Lent this year we are challenging the congregation to read The Story of Jesus. This is a compilation of the Gospels to create a seamless narrative. Feel free to purchase the book from Kindle, Audio Book, or from us in The Gathering Place. As we experience the life of Jesus, we will learn from His teachings, actions, and parables. Let us all enter into the story as if we are reading the life of Jesus for the very first time. Allow Jesus’ story to intersect with your story.
Service Worship – Kingdom Connections
Our next Service Worship will take place on March 31. Our main focus will be on the new Gospel Rescue Mission Center of Opportunity which will open its doors in April. We will have plenty of projects that will help launch the opening in a successful way. Beginning Sunday March 17, (the first Service Worship sign up) we will be collecting non-perishable items such as cereal, peanut butter, soup with pop tops, canned vegetables, applesauce cups, fruit cups, and pudding cups. We are hoping to help Haven Totes Corporate and La Frontera with their empty pantries. Finally, if food isn’t your item of choice, we will also be collecting toilet paper for the single mom scholars at Interfaith Community Services and for those in need who are transitioning to their own apartments. Thank you for blessing our community! Please contact RuthAnn at email@example.com for more information.

We have three Sunday morning services. Each has a unique feel and style.
7:30 am Communion Service || During this service, we sing praises through hymns, say prayers, listen to the Word of God through bible-centered preaching and celebrate Holy Communion weekly. The music is lead by organ, with special guest instrumentalists and vocalists appearing regularly throughout the year. Please join us for this very intimate service in our chapel.
9:00 am Contemporary Service || Each week, our contemporary worship is lead by our worship team consisting of a variety of instruments, such as guitar, bass, piano, drums, singers. The music selection ranges from current Christian songs to more traditional hymns that have been reset to a contemporary feel. There are also elements of drama and video sprinkled through the year as well. This service take place in the main sanctuary on the SW campus.
10:45 am Traditional Service || In this service we feature listening to the Word of God through bible-centered preaching and musical presentations, as well as various liturgy and much prayer. The hymns are lead by the organ and the chancel choir, which provides anthems throughout the fall and spring. The service is also musically enhanced by the appearances of other ensembles within the music ministry including the Wittman Ringers, Children's Choir, Men's Ensemble, St. Andrew's Orchestra, St. Andrew's Clarinet Choir, as well as other special guest musicians.
