2 Pastors & Staff The Rev. Dr. Alan Baroody, Interim Pastor The Rev. Lisa Patterson, Associate Pastor Brandi Schoel, Youth/Blended Worship Director Jeff Snider, Director of Music Jannette Hindman, Children s Choir Director Jean Harden, Handbell Choir Director Sue Elliott, Nursery Director Tonya Hernandez, Financial Secretary Stephanie Raesz, Treehouse Director Jim White, Facilities Manager Louis Korom, Office Manager/Communication Assistant Shea-lyn Stephens, Office Administrator From Our interim Pastor Dear St. Andrew Church Family, It is exciting to be a part of a church that invites challenging inquiry and promotes life-long learning! Dietrich Bonhoeffer once said that we should make it a practice to read with the Bible in one hand and the newspaper in the other. As Christians we never stand still long enough for faith to become stale and separated from how we live our lives. Our Spring Guide offers opportunities for children, youth, and adults to experience fellowship, continuing education, and mission within the context of the Community of Faith. Through classes, seminars, music and mission, we equip ourselves to bring the healing light and love of Christ to the complex world in which we live. 300 W. Oak St. Denton, TX Church Office Hours: Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm I invite you and your family to look through the Spring Guide together. Pick out the courses and activities that appeal to your interests and that will enhance your faith journey. Then, join with us as we worship, learn, and serve together as the St. Andrew Church Family. Grace & Peace, Alan Baroody Sunday Worship Schedule 8:30am & 10:50am Children s Chapel - after the children s 10:50am 2 Spring Guide 2015

3 welcome to st. andrew St. Andrew Presbyterian Church is a joyful community of faith committed to worshiping in ways that inspire awe and praise; Growing in God s Word; Practicing the radical hospitality of divine grace; Sharing God s love with people of diverse backgrounds and ages; Reaching out to human need in Denton and beyond; Growing in all forms of giving time, talent, and treasure; Becoming faithful disciples of Jesus as we learn to love God with all that is in us, and the neighbor as the self. We worship and study together on Sundays at 8:30am with soloists and 10:50am with chancel choir. Sunday School is at 9:30am, with a nursery for infants and young children and a Children s Chapel for pre-k and K children. We periodically hold a Service for Wholeness on weekday evenings where respite from busyness of life can be found, as well as weekly Bible studies and activities for men and women and various monthly gatherings. We serve our congregation, our community, and the world, including a Fall Festival of Faith and Stephen Ministry. We gather mid-week during Fall and Spring semesters for a Super Wednesday meal, program, and activities for all ages, including Chancel Choir, whose membership is open to all with no auditions, and a Handbell Choir. We have an active Youth ministry for middle and high school students and a dynamic program for elementary and pre-school children, including two children s choirs, which also attend a Worship and Music Conference at Mo Ranch in the summer. We provide The Children s Place, a preschool, and the Treehouse, an after school program for elementary children. We house Denton s ecumenical soup kitchen, Our Daily Bread, in Fellowship Hall M-F every week at noon, and we volunteer working with Hearts for Homes, Habitat for Humanity, Interfaith Ministries, HOPE, Inc., the Denton Community Food Center, Spirit Horse, and mission trips throughout the year for all ages. how to become a member Membership at St. Andrew is the first step in what we consider a life-long process of discipleship, and we invite you to join us on this journey. Becoming a member affirms your faith in God and love for God s people. Membership is a commitment to this particular part of God s family, where we nurture growth in faith, worship, and service to others. We hope you find the simplicity of our membership process an engaging introduction to our life together. There are four steps to becoming a member of St. Andrew: 1. Fill out and turn in a New Member Information Form. You will find the forms on the Visitor Information table in the narthex. 2. Come to the parlor after the 10:50am worship service on the last Sunday of the month. The Session, our governing body, formally receives new members at that time. We receive new members in one of the following ways: Letter of Transfer (can be requested by our church office), Reaffirmation of Faith, or Profession of Faith and Baptism. 3. Join us during the 10:50am worship service the following Sunday (first Sunday of the month) when we recognize our new members during the service. 4. We encourage all new members to participate in an Inquirer s Class, which is offered periodically during the year Spring Guide 3

6 Sunday School For Children Nursery - 8:30am-Noon Room 102 Preschool - 9:30am Sue Elliott & Vera Odei, Room 100 Completed K-5 th Grades - 9:30am Media Room For Youth 6 th /7 th Grade - 9:45am-10:30am The Den 8 th Grade Confirmation Class - 9:45-10:30am Rec Center Mezzanine High School - 9:45-10:30am The Den Envisioning St. Andrew s Future Alan Baroody, Fellowship Hall January 11-Februay 15 When we have a major life transition (change of vocation, marriage or divorce, going to college, retirement, empty nest, etc.), we are forced to ask the Who am I? question all over again. The same is true for a church in transition. We are forced to ask similar transitional questions: Who are we as a faith community? Where is God calling us? What will God s future for St. Andrew look like? Our six week class will approach the answer to these questions by exploring and celebrating our history, identifying our core values, identifying our strengths, and prayerfully dreaming about our future. We will be sharing our faith and having congregational conversations together as we touch on the areas that our newly formed Mission Study Task group will explore in depth. Join our discussion as we envision the future. All church members and interested visitors are welcome to attend. Breakfast Club 9:30am Lisa Patterson, Room 206/208 How do we, as human beings, grow into a deeper understanding of the triune God? How do we even begin the sometimes eagerly anticipated but confusing and lifelong journey of seeing and experiencing God s actions in history and in our lives? God s revelation of God s own self comes to us through Word - Jesus Christ and the Scriptures - and both are living. God, revealed to us in Jesus Christ, came in the form of a fully human and fully divine person and God s revelation to us through the Scriptures comes in a living, breathing, active revelation. The Scriptures are a living word that requires loving attention, on the part of the community and individual listeners, to hear and to receive as the living revelation of God. Join us as we study the living Scriptures by using The Mighty Acts of God, by A. B. Rhodes to guide us in our reading, hearing and receiving. If you re looking for a way to grow in your knowledge and ability to contemplate, understand and hear God s revelation, we invite you to join us. ALL levels of learners are welcome. The book is optional and cost is $15, if purchasing a book. 6 Spring Guide 2015 For Adults Mighty Acts 9:30am John Mikow, Room 100 The Present Word engages participants in an experiential style of learning and connecting faith and life. Through the exploration of the biblical text, class members are invited into a deepened relationship with God. Pastor s Class 9:40am Fred Cassell, Room 207/209 Join this inquisitive, faithful, lively and welcoming group for the Spring semester. They are faithfully led by Fred Cassell and study the Bible in all of its complexities and meaning. They will complete the Gospel of John on January 4, 2015 and then begin a study of the Acts of the Apostles on Sunday, February 22, Pathfinders 9:30am Richard Sale, Room 205 The Pathfinder s Sunday School Class will have a discussion of The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning. The book is good news for the bedraggled, beat-up and burnt out.

7 Chancel Choir Jeff Snider, Director of Music The Chancel Choir is open to all members of the congregation as well as non-members. The ability to read music is welcome but not required, nor is an audition. We rehearse in the adult choir room at 7:30pm on Wednesday evenings and in the chancel on Sunday mornings at 9:45am. If you feel the call to sing, please consider joining this group of dedicated singers. Handbell Choir Jean Harden, Director The handbell choir offers another option for musical participation in worship. This intergenerational group consists mostly of St. Andrew members but over the years has usually included non-members as well. The handbells play in worship several times each year, most often during Advent, Lent, and the Easter season. Some familiarity with music notation is strongly recommended, but previous ringing experience is not required. We will teach you what you need to know about ringing. Membership is open without audition to ringers from senior high through adult. Junior high students with substantial past musical experience may be accepted into the group after consultation with the director. Small ensembles for more advanced ringers are filled by invitation only, from the ranks of the principal group. The full handbell choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm in the adult choir room. Beginning date TBA Service for Wholeness February 24 You are invited to a Service for Wholeness in the sanctuary at 6:00pm on Tuesday, February 24. This informal service affirms God s love for us in the face of spiritual and perhaps physical pain and suffering. It is a way for us to be present with one another in love. Consisting of a short meditation from the one of the pastors, responsive reading, and prayer, the service offers a quiet and contemplative approach to worship. In part of the service, worshipers are invited to bring a need or concern before God by coming forward for prayer with one of the pastors or Stephen Ministers. Perhaps it is an illness, or treatment for an illness. Or maybe it involves a family or business matter, or a relationship of one kind or another. Whatever the need, the Service for Wholeness is an opportunity to bring that need into the presence of God in a confidential environment. The service concludes with the celebration of the Holy Communion. Music Ministry Children s Choirs Jannette Hindman, Director Participating in choir gives children the opportunity to serve God as they offer up their singing in worship as a gift. The children s choirs rehearse on Wednesday evenings after the meal in Fellowship Hall. The Covenant Choir, for second through fifth grades, rehearses from 6:15-7:00pm, and the Noel Choir, for kindergarten and first grades, rehearses from 7:00-7:30pm. The children s choir room is located on the floor directly above the church office. All children are invited to join a choir! Youth Choir Jannette Hindman, Director Youth Choir meets from 9:00-9:45 on Sunday mornings in the children s choir room and is open to all middle school and high school youth. It provides an opportunity for our youth to worship through music and to serve God by enhancing the worship services of St. Andrew. Singing in choir also enables our youth to participate more fully in the worship life of our church, and is a way for them to give back to their church, which supports its children and youth programs fully. Last but not least, listeners are blessed by the beautiful sounds of our teens singing praise to God. Come join us! Instrumental Ensemble Adam La Spata, Director The instrumental ensemble provides string, wind, and percussion musicians the opportunity to honor God by playing hymn orchestrations and original compositions and arrangements for instruments. We play in worship several times each year, seeking to enhance the meaning of the liturgical seasons. Membership is open without auditions to instrumentalists from high school age on up even if they are not St. Andrew members; junior high students with sufficient musical experience may be accepted into the group after consultation with the director. All members of the ensemble should be able, at a minimum, to play a notated hymn melody and harmony, at a tempo suitable for singing. The full ensemble rehearses on Sunday afternoons from 12:30 to 1:30pm in the adult choir room. Rehearsals will begin on January 18. For more information, please contact the director at Spring Guide 7

10 Making a Difference in Denton Community Outreach Committee This diaconate committee provides opportunities for members of St. Andrew to assist with community needs identified from a variety of community agencies and organizations. Activities for January-May 2015 include the following: Give-A-Meal-A-Month: Food is collected each month in the bins by the soda machines near Fellowship Hall for distribution to the Denton Food Center. January & February: Community Outreach will collect congregation donations of needed supplies for the Denton Christian Preschool. March through May 3: Community Outreach will collect congregational donations for Giving Hope, Inc. Mothers Day Gift Bags. The committee welcomes others to become a member of the Community Outreach Committee. We meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. Treehouse Volunteers The Treehouse is St. Andrew s outreach mission to low-income children within the Denton Independent School District. Each day, 14 children from three different elementary schools are picked up on the St. Andrew bus and brought back to our Rec Center to spend their after school time with us. They enjoy a healthy snack, have time to rest or do homework, play in the gym or outside, have arts and crafts time, music time, and chapel time, providing them with a safe and loving environment. The Treehouse has one paid staff member/director, and we rely completely on volunteers to spend time with the children each afternoon and/or to provide their daily snack. If you feel called to this mission, please contact the director at verizon.net. Those who give their time can do so weekly, a few times a month, or be on our substitute list. All you need to do is pass a background check and a brief orientation. Snack volunteers are provided with a schedule and a list of snack options. Please prayerfully consider whether your time and talents would match the needs of this special program. Give a Meal Our monthly food drive for the Denton Community Food Center is organized by the diaconate s Community Outreach committee. The monthly menu is in the bulletin each week, and the committee asks that we bring our staples to the collection bin by the Coke machine near the doors to Fellowship Hall. They will deliver the food to the Food Center at the end of the month. Our monthly food drive is a simple yet powerful way to help feed our hungry neighbors in Denton. Thank You! Birthday Endowment This endowment was established in 2007 and provides income to fund mission efforts not covered by the annual mission budget. Income has been used in previous years to send children and sponsors to Mo-Ranch s Worship and Music Conference, as well as for mission projects such as water filtration systems for people in Guatemala. Traditionally, members contribute an amount equal to the number of years being celebrated. So on your next birthday remember this endowment and contribute toward making a lasting difference in the lives of others. Our Daily Bread Many in Denton turn for help to this community soup kitchen housed at St. Andrew. The kitchen staff always needs volunteers, and there are other avenues to serve as well. To volunteer, visit their website, and follow the directions under Volunteering. 10 Spring Guide 2015
