During The Season Of Lent each year, the people of St. Andrew’s are encouraged to collect coins to support the work of Presbyterian World Service and Development.

The Stewardship Committee has provided coin-collecting jars for us.  You can pick one up in the entranceway, and remember to bring it back on Easter Sunday. There are also some PWS&D envelopes in the entranceway if you would prefer to write a cheque.

A Maundy Thursday Worship will be held on April 17th at Calvin Goforth Church (1602 Sommerfeld Ave.) at 7:00 pm.

Lent and Holy Week Activities

Posted in category: Announcements

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

Study materials are available in print (306-242-0525) or by email (email hidden; JavaScript is required) from Rev. Amanda Currie.

A Maundy Thursday Worship will be held on April 17th at Calvin Goforth Church (1602 Sommerfeld Ave.) at 7:00 pm.

Inner City Undies Appeal

Posted on January 24, 2014 in category: Announcements

February is “Bring some underwear to church” month at St. Andrew’s!

The Outreach Committee is encouraging everyone to bring new packages of underwear to church, which will then be distributed between Saskatoon Native Circle Ministry, The Lighthouse, and the YWCA Women’s Crisis Center. A bin will be provided for all items donated.

Things to consider:

  • Please, no used underwear. All underwear should be in its original packaging or with the original tags attached.
  • It can be either men’s or women’s, but be aware that there is more of a need for men’s.
  • They can be S, M, L or XL. God did not make everyone the same size.
  • It can be long or short. Long will help during the cold weather, but short will also be very much appreciated.

In Saskatoon there are a number of agencies that provide good condition used clothing either free, or at a very reasonable cost.  However, because of the nature of the item, underwear is somewhat less available.  It would be nice to be able to provide someone with a change.
