“Are you all the way back?” That’s a question I frequently hear these days from fellow pastors, friends, and members of sister churches in places near and far as they ask about the ministry of St. Andrew. So far, my answer is typically “No, but we’re getting there!”
Together with Pastor González, our staff and congregational leaders, I encourage you to read the latest newsletter to discover more of the ways we’re getting there in our journey all the way back to our pre-pandemic ministry and on to the future God has in store for us as a community of faith. I also encourage you to pray for our congregation, that we might emerge from a tragic ordeal stronger and even more joyful, welcoming, and determined to minister to the world around us. Some precautions are still being taken and we’re still missing a number of faithful worshipers. More of our fellow citizens need to be vaccinated and, given recent news, we aren’t yet at the point of having the COVID-19 pandemic fade from our memories. But, by God’s grace, we’re getting there, and I look forward to welcoming more and more of our members and friends back to church and to our work together for the greatest cause in the world!
The Lord be with you+Love in Christ,
