February 4th 2024 -“From where does your strength come from?”

2024-02-04 “From where does your strength come?” 11:00 AM

Dear friends,

THANK YOU to everyone who helped make St. Andrew’s 99th Anniversary Potluck Luncheon such a success!  We all enjoyed the fantastic and unique food choices brought to the potluck.  It’s moments like these, where good food, meaningful conversations and friendships come together to make for such memorable experiences. 

OUR RESPONSIVE READING this week is taken from Psalm 147, “God Heals the Broken-hearted.”  This psalm is a hymn of praise celebrating God’s power, care for Jerusalem, and His role as a healer.  It emphasizes gratitude for His guidance, protection, and enduring love, making it a source of comfort and inspiration for believers in times of difficulty.  Martin Luther, the famous protestant reformer from the 16th century, comments on this psalm, “God does not demand great sacrifices or precious treasures of great price for His blessings, but for something much simpler than that.  He wants our songs and praise.”  

Let us lift our hearts and voices to the Lord in songs of praise and worship this Sunday!
