The Lenten Season Begins Feb. 26
At the end of February, we enter into the season of Lent, a period of 40 days and 6 Sundays, beginning on Ash Wednesday (Feb. 26) and culminating in Holy Week. It is a time for personal reflection and prayer, a time for soul-searching and spiritual redirection. It's a time for opening ourselves to the transforming power of God in Jesus Christ, that we might become more Christ-like and reflect the image of God more clearly. It's a time to turn our lives around and begin living in new ways, a time to renew our faith and recommit ourselves to following the way of Christ. Those of you who would like to begin your Lenten observance with worship are invited to join us at St. Andrew for our Ash Wednesday service on February 26 at 7:00 p.m.

Church Librarian Needed
The St. Andrew Church Library is in need of a Church Librarian. Our Church Library is in pretty good shape right now, but we need someone to help keep it that way (primarily organizing and processing new books that are donated to the library). You don't need to have had prior experience as a librarian. Any book lovers out there who would like to volunteer? Contact Pastor Roger.
In 2020, we're striving to continue organizing events that will foster intersecting holy moments for all generations alike. These moments are special because they intentionally hold space for all to mutually engage and invest in each other in the creation of meaningful relationships, while sharing faith stories and connecting to a larger community. What does intergenerational ministry look like to YOU? Share your thoughts and ideas with Claire and the Children & Youth CE Committee! youth.standrewabq @gmail.com
The Spiritual Formation group meets every 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month from 10:00 to 11:30 am in the library. We aim to take a deep dive into scripture, opening our minds and hearts to whatever God may convey to us through the Word. Join us!
