I had a spirit filled Via de Cristo weekend up in Albion, Indiana, at Camp Lutherhaven! St. Andrew’s was well represented as Mark and Denise Hollman provided the music leadership, Jamie Shake and I gave talks on the Christian life, and Anne Demaree-Cullen attended as a pilgrim. It was a wonderful time, and beautiful weather near a lovely lake.    There is another Co-Ed weekend coming in October 19-22 south at Camp Lakeview near Seymour, please pray about attending and making your own spiritual pilgrimage! A central point of the VDC weekend is about God's Grace! I want to remind you all of us, that God's grace is a tremendous free gift for everyone. It is God's automatic "do-over' and fresh start and new beginning.    This month we transition out of the Easter season into Pentecost where we celebrate the gift of God's Holy Spirit. May that same Spirit pour out upon you today and renew your heart, because you are loved and you are that new creation in Christ! (1 C 5:17).


1) Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's this Sunday!

2) Clothes Closet this Saturday, 10-12. This will be the only one in the month of May due to the race. If you can volunteer, please come by, if you know of anyone needing clothes, please refer them to us!

3) Please keep Tony Guedel in your prayers, as he had a fall and was hospitalized. Pat reports that he was released home Tuesday and doing well.

God be with you until we meet again!   +Pastor Doug
