Give My Offering Online


Let us join with you in prayers of concern and joy. We will get it out to our community for prayer. This will strengthen, comfort, and connect us as we write our heart's journeys, read through other's needs, and pray together to our loving and faithful God Almighty. It's our time to rise up and connect through our prayers! What a witness in itself it shall be...

Children & Youth Ministry
Today, we began to learn Joseph's story from the Old Testament. There are so many rich lessons to learn from his life. Almost everyone can relate to being treated unfairly at some point in their life. It does not feel good and can leave damaging scars on our insides. Joseph gives us a powerful example of how to keep our eyes fixed on God. Being faithful to God is not always easy, but the rewards and blessings we accrue are life-saving and transforming!

Student Prayer Praises & Concerns:
Thank You, God, for my family and friends!
Please, God, help me to remain faithful to You above all else.
Please, God, help me to go deeper in praying to You.

Students joyfully tithed their service through the collection of the Offering and serving as Acolyte.
We are a Safe Sanctuaries Church with every volunteer and staff member trained and approved. For questions or more information on Safe Sanctuaries or any of these news/events, please email Christy Little at
Saint Andrew's Day School
We began this Chapel with PEEPS flying! That's right - that gooey, surgery marshmallow Easter treat was being launched by one student trying to get it into his partner's Easter bucket. The point of this hilarious game was that we do not need to worry about where life might throw us because Jesus is preparing a place for us in Heaven. This led us into our lesson on snapshots of Holy Week. It was very interactive, and the students enjoyed it! We celebrated the Offering and Holy Communion and closed by singing and signing "The Lord's Prayer."

We will have our traditional 7PM Tenebrae Worship Service on April 7. We hope you will join us in creating a new tradition of having our faith community lead us in the readings. Our evening's worship together will be meaningful and powerful. We hope you can join us! If you would like to have a reading part, please contact Christy Little.


Spread the word and make the invites! We have a lot of great events going on to honor and celebrate our Lord on Easter Sunday!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the gifts for Reverend Andy and Dean Titcomb. We purchased a Praying Angel Dish Garden with a Willow Angel Keepsake and a Sympathy Wind Chime. We had an abundance of generosity, so the rest of the money collected was donated to St. Martin's Evangelical Lutheran Church at their request. 


Our Spring New York Bus Trip will be on Saturday, May 6. The cost is $60/per person. Space is limited! Sign up now on the Church Bulletin Board located in the main hallway or call Joanne at 443-569-2290.


There will be NO ADMITTANCE during this time in concern for safety issues. Please do not walk thru but use other entrances/exits as needed to the church building. Your cooperation is appreciated!
