Advent & Christmas Eve

Posted in Special Worship Updated

Advent 2016 at St. Andrew: Simply Sent

Our theme for Advent is "Simply Sent". Jesus was simply sent to us to bring us many gifts, arrived with such humility, and we are sent in Christ’s name to bring His many gifts to our world. A primary resource for the season will be “Sent” based upon a book by Jorge Acevedo. The tone of the services will be kind and inviting with the expectation that those who receive the gift of God’s sending (Jesus) will know they are simply sent to share that gift with others.
