Annual Lenten Series

St. Andrew experiences Lent through covered dish fellowship and uplifting programing to help people appreciate and prepare their hearts for the love and sacrifice God showed at Easter.

ash-wednesday-quotes-14 2Covered dish dinners are at 6 pm with programs at 7 pm on Wednesday evenings. Each Wednesday in Lent will follow with programs of music and testimony of God's love.  Our own youth group will also bring their perspective of God's love in everyday life.  

March 4: His Blood Church Choir of South Toms River, Pastor Ade Omojola, is a largely Nigerian, Ghana and Hispanic Congregation. Minister of Music Hanna will lead one of the church choirs in comtemporary songs of praise and worship, a special song, "Glorious Deliverer," and praise songs from the Nigerian culture. Hanna will also bring a message to encourage us on our Lenten journey.

On Holy Thursday we will have a service of Holy Communion.

Pastor Mark: Blogging Towards Sunday

stepping stones

“If Christ Wasn’t Controversial, then there is no such thing as the cross.”

During this Lenten season, our focus will be upon the “Controversial Christ.” During the week between Palm Sunday and Easter, many controversies and debates occurred within the precincts of the Temple area. 

It stands only to reason that what Jesus said and did was so ‘out there,’ that it led to His crucifixion.
