      This Sunday at St. Andrew's Rev. Otto will continue a short series on Jewish Holy Days and the Church, focusing on how the Jewish holy days find fulfilment in Jesus Christ.  This Sunday we will consider Shemini Atzeret, "the eighth day of assembly" and Simchat Torah, "rejoicing in the Torah."  Please join us at 10 am as we worship the Lord and seek to understand better the Jewish roots of our Christian faith.

      “Code Purple” is a program supported by the Newark Empowerment Center.  In the winter, when temperatures drop to dangerous levels, seven churches in the area open up, in rotation, for overnight housing of homeless people.  Volunteers are critical and are needed to support those events.  There are a lot of opportunities with varying amounts of time required.  Please consider helping our neighboring churches in this life saving program. Contact Tom Parkins (302) 731 8193

      Think of "cold people" when you read or hear the term "code purple". The Code Purple ministry offers cold people, the homeless in our area, supper and an overnight, 6 pm- 6 am, in a safe, warm sanctuary when local weather forecasts predict 20° F or colder overnight. Eight Newark churches participate in Code Purple. As soon as NEC declares a "Code Purple" night, the host churches activates its volunteer staff.

      The Volunteer Teams:

      • Prepare supper and ready the dining area
      • Set up the sleeping area for the overnight guests
      • Greet guests and explain the rules; monitor behaviours
      • admit late arrivals until 9 pm, when doors are locked
      • stay from midnight to 6 am, in case a guest needs help; this team also prepares breakfast and sees guests out
      • clean up
