Lent and Holy Week Activities

The Season of Lent will begin with Ash Wednesday on March 5th. Everyone is invited to the service at St. Andrew’s (436 Spadina Crescent E) including Holy Communion and the Imposition of Ashes at 7:00 pm. Take the opportunity to be nourished and strengthened by communion with God and one another for the Lenten journey that lies ahead.

A Lenten Study – Biblical Models Of Discipleship In The New Testament: What is Christian discipleship? One might be tempted to say, “Just live the way the disciples did in the New Testament,” and leave it at that. But such a declaration is more complex than one might initially believe. It appears that even during the earliest period of Christian history, there was not a single means by which to follow Christ. Throughout this study, we will investigate key texts of the New Testament, revealing many methods by which disciples functioned as followers or pupils, and ask how applicable these methods might be for thoughtful Christians of our day.

You are invited to participate in this exploration of discipleship at St. Andrew’s (436 Spadina Crescent E) on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:30 pm during Lent:

Wed. Mar. 5th, 7:00-8:00 pm – Ash Wednesday Worship
Wed. Mar. 12th – Mark 4:1-9
Wed. Mar. 19th – Matthew 6:19-34
Wed. Mar. 26th – Luke 6:20-38
Wed. Apr. 2nd – John 15:12-17
Wed. Apr. 9th – Galatians 3:27-29
Wed. Apr. 16th – Titus 2:11-14

A Maundy Thursday Worship will be held on April 17th at Calvin-Goforth Church (1602 Sommerfeld Ave.) at 7:00 pm. As we gather to remember the last supper Jesus’ shared with his disciples, we will share in the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. Everyone is invited to bring a pair of new socks to donate to the Saskatoon Native Circle Ministry.

Good Friday Worship will be on April 18th at St. Andrew’s (436 Spadina Cres. E). We will gather to remember the day that our Lord Jesus was crucified, died, and was buried. We worship together at 10:30 am, followed by a time of fellowship. There will be a joint choir for this worship service. Speak to Gillian Lyons (306-242-0525 or email hidden; JavaScript is required ) about rehearsals beginning soon if you would like to join the choir.

Early-Morning Easter Worship & Breakfast (in Kiwanis Park, across the street from St. Andrew’s). We will gather in the park at 8:30 am for an early-morning worship service in celebration of the resurrection of Christ. Breakfast will be served at about 9:30 a.m. by our Presbyterian Youth in the lower hall of St. Andrew’s. A free will offering will be received to send our youth to Canada Youth 2014.
