Current Message Series ~ The Gospel of Grace

The book of Galatians is a Pauline Epistle (letter from Paul). It was written by the Apostle Paul about 49 A.D. prior to the Jerusalem Council which had taken place in 50 A.D. This quite possibly could have been Paul’s first letter. The key personalities of this book are the Apostle Paul, Peter, Barnabas, Abraham, Titus, and false teachers. Paul writes this book to deal with the problem of circumcision and Jewish legalism toward Gentile believers.!” (See Jay Smith-http://biblehub.com/summary/galatians/1.htm

The first chapter lays out the Apostle Paul’s ministry, message, and motive for writing to the Galatians sending them the Grace and Peace found in Christ.

On Sunday, May 17 Pastor Chris Carter’s message was “The Necessity of Forgiveness”. This is the last message of the current series The Art of Forgiving

Youth and Young Families

You may wonder if St Andrews looks after the needs of your children. We believe that children should have an age appropriate, excellent Christian experience at our worship services. Children remain with the “big people” for the first part of the service including the “Praise Song” time and, following a time set aside just for them, they go downstairs to have fun, play games, sing songs, meet new friends-and learn how much they matter to God. We also provide a nursery program for children up to age 4.
