This past Sunday, St. Andrew's resumed the popular Sunday night activities for all ages with a really good turnout. The potluck supper at 5 pm was delicious, followed by small groups for all ages from 5:30-7 pm. The adults will be studying world religions, so please join us!
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 email@example.com
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:
Please spread the word that additional volunteers are needed to provide hospitality to people in need at the Newark Empowerment Center. Potential volunteers may wish to stop by the Newark United Methodist Church (back door entrance) Monday through Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. to see how the center functions and/or just contact the volunteer coordinator, Sheila Anderson, firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know when you may be available to assist.
Thanks to all for this outreach serving the needy in Newark.
As a separate note, Tom Parkins, Calvary Baptist, email@example.com, 302-731-8193, has now assumed the coordinator role for the Newark Empowerment Center and Code Purple Sanctuary.
Please join us at 10 am each Sunday for a blended service of praise and worship of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. Ours is a blended service, opening with a couple of praise and worship songs, followed by prayers of adoration of God, a time of unison and private confession, Scripture reading, special music or a choir anthem, the proclamation of the Word, and the opportunity to give to the Lord's work, with a song of sending and a charge to go and make disciples of all nations.
Come as you are and be renewed and refreshed by the love and grace of God in Christ!
The Lord's Supper is provided on the first Sunday of each month.
