Sunday Morning Adult Forum

The Good Book Club
St. Andrew's will join Episcopalians around the world to read the Gospel according to Luke during Lent and the Book of Acts during Eastertide in 2018. We hope you’ll join us on this journey! Click here for more info.

  • Feb. 18: This week, we will discuss what is often considered the Luke’s thesis statement for Jesus’ entire ministry in Galilee. We will pay special attention to the healing miracles, the spiritual aspects of these events and our understandings of wholeness. We will also pay special attention to some of the implicit anti-Jewish language and responses recorded in this section. Additionally, we’ll visit the sometimes problematic idea of divine favoritism.
  • Feb. 25: This week, we will discuss the parable of the Good Samaritan, one of the most beloved stories Jesus shares with us. We’ll take a long, hard look at the divisions between the Jews and the Samaritans, as well as taking a second look at the question of who our neighbors are and how we ought to love them.
  • Mar. 4: This is One City Marathon Sunday. There will be no Adult Forum and just one worship service at 4 p.m., followed by supper.
  • Mar. 11: This week, we will take a look at possessions and wealth and how we manage both in light of our relationship to God. We will consider the lilies and the ravens, as well as viable strategies for living faithful lives in a consumer-driven culture.
  • Mar. 18: This week, we will take a deep dive into the realm of liberation theology. This may be a difficult concept for some folks to grasp—or at least uncomfortable to ponder—but it is an important concept for us to consider. How do we reconcile these texts from Luke with other biblical perspectives on wealth?
  • Mar. 25: A preview of Luke 24:13-35, which is the lesson for Good Friday.


During the Week

Spiritual Gifts: A Joint Lenten Study of the Hilton Churches
During Lent this year, five Hilton-area churches are coming together to explore the topic of spiritual gifts—what they are, how to identify them, how to put them to use.  Taking turns offering hospitality and facilitating the five-part series, our churches seek to model and to benefit from sharing our gifts with one another.  We hope that you will join us. Click here for lots more info and the series schedule.

Wednesdays in Lent
Beginning on February 21 and continuing each Wednesday evening through March 21. You're invited to join us each Wednesday for all or just some of these events: 7:30 a.m. Lenten Service; 8 a.m. Breakfast; 11 a.m. Holy Eucharist with Healing

Thursday Morning Bible Study
This Bible study meets 10 to 11:15 a.m. every Thursday. The group is currently studying the Book of Acts.

Centering Prayer
Centering Prayer is offered at 7:30 a.m. on Thursdays in the Parish Library. Led by David Lilley.

Being & Becoming: Goals for Our Future
Interested parishioners are invited to come together monthly beginning Feb. 6 for conversation, planning, and action as we discern how best to move forward on the goals presented at the Annual Parish Meeting in December 2017. Please join us, either in person or in spirit (and definitely in prayer!), as we move forward into our future, where God is already present and waiting for us. Click here for more info.

Christian Formation offerings for Children

Children’s Chapel
Children’s Chapel, for children age 3 through 5th grade, is offered during the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday. Following the Gospel reading, children leave for Chapel and return in time for Communion. Clergy or other leaders offer an age appropriate lesson based on the lectionary of the day and music is led by our Minister of Music Brad Norris.

Vacation Bible School
Hilton Area Churches Vacation Bible School, usually held in early July each year, is an ecumenical program which includes five area churches. It began over 25 years ago and continues to be an important collaborative ministry each summer. Adult and youth volunteers begin preparing months in advance to ensure that the children attending benefit from an enriching Christian education experience. Our volunteers work alongside volunteers from other churches and together share in the mission to communicate God’s love to all. To learn more or get involved, contact the Parish Office, 595-0371 or saec0371@verizon.net.
