SUNDAY WORSHIP

Please join us in person for worship each Sunday! We currently follow all state and IDPH guidelines related to Covid safety. For those times when masks are required, we have extras available if you forget yours.

Our Sunday schedule is as follows:

– 8:30 am Traditional Service Worship

– 9:45 am Christian education (Sunday school, adult ed)

– 10:45 Contemporary Service Worship

If you would prefer to still worship virtually, or are unable to join us in person, we will alternate a livestream of the services via Zoom. The Zoom information is available in our weekly e-blast. To be added to church communications, please contact the church office via phone or email (anitapahlmanstandrew@gmail.com).

The Zoom webinar is recorded and posted to YouTube each week. If you subscribe to our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpKWaDnSHH4DPVRflVBhJ8A), your YouTube homepage will also then have the latest St. Andrew worship service ready to go for you!

It is often used for prayer/meditation and a quiet space to be present with God.

Communion during live virtual worship

We will be celebrating the Eucharist during our in-person worship each week. We affirm that God is at work in the consecration of the elements. If you are worshiping from home, you will need to have ready:

Bread: when Jesus broke the bread and said “my body, given for you”, he used the bread that would have been present at most meals in the ancient world. You are invited to use the bread, crackers, or even tortillas that your family regularly uses at mealtime. Please do not use chips or cookies.

Wine: we will be using red wine at the altar in the sanctuary, and invite you to use a red table wine, or a pure grape juice. Please do not use soda/pop, milk, or other beverages. If you do not have wine or juice, the bread is enough! That’s called Communion In One Kind, and is a common practice for many communities.

If you need both or either of these elements, please let Pr Jenna or Anita know, and we will make sure you have access to the prepackaged communion items we have at the church. They come with a wafer and a thimble of grape juice.
