“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”
We hear these words every Sunday at St. Andrew. Various elements of our worship service originated from the Bible ages ago – our greeting comes from 2 Corinthians 13:13. As the annotation for this verse in The New Oxford Annotated Bible says: “the grace of Christ expresses and leads one toward the love of God, and the love of God when actualized through the Spirit, produces communion with God and with one another.” To be graced by Christ with the love of God through the Spirit so that we live in communion with God and with one another is the purpose of Christian worship. “Be with you all” means we are called to welcome everyone in the name of Jesus, absolutely everyone.
You can learn more about us from our website, and we hope you will explore it. We also hope you will worship with us and give us the privilege of learning more about you.
