Amazing Grace Sunday

Two hundred years ago, British politician William Wilberforce and his band of loyal friends took on the most powerful forces of their day to end the slave trade. His mentor was John Newton, the slave-trader-turned-song-writer, who wrote the world’s most popular hymn, Amazing Grace. This year is the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade. But the work of justice and mercy continues. 27 million men, women, and children are still enslaved around the globe. How sweet the sound of freedom. Join churches around the globe in singing Amazing Grace and in praying for the end of slavery once and for all.

Tomorrow, St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church will join more than 3,000 churches across the U.S. for Amazing Grace Sunday on February 18. We will have a special service tomorrow in honor of Amazing Grace Sunday. Everyone is welcome to attend.


The Amazing Change

~~You hear, O LORD, the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you
listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, in order that man, who is of the earth, may terrify no more. ~~
—Psalm 10:17, 18

Souper Bowl Sunday!

140 million people all over the world watched the SuperBowl football game today. There were parties with abundant food, friendship and fellowship. At the same time, there were people who worried about staying warm, finding shelter and a warm meal.

The youth of St. Andrew's decided to make a difference. They held a Souper Bowl of Caring during Moments of Fellowship today. They used the Super Bowl weekend to fight hunger and poverty in our local communities.They made delicious soup and bread and took up donations that will benefit our local soup kitchens.

The Souper Bowl of Caring is a youth-led, grassroots movement of caring, the result of thousands of young people joining together to fight hunger and poverty in their communities. Since 1990, $35 million has been raised for charities across the country.
