the good news we have received;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Song of Response
Gather, Give Thanks, and Pray
If you haven’t already, set the elements—some bread, some juice or wine—in the room where you worship electronically in these days with our faith community. Bring them with joy, giving thanks for God’s provision.
If a joy or a concern has come to mind, please share it with the assembly here so you do not carry it alone. These will be shared by email to our St Andrew prayer list so that we pray for what you hold by name. This information is emailed to a curated group, not shared or posted online in a searchable form.
As we respond to God's grace and new life, consider those ways you can express gratitude, thanksgiving and blessing. And remember that we continue to keep our financial commitments to our mission partners and staff. Thank you for remembering to send in your financial pledges and offerings!
