As usual, there are lots of good reasons to be at St. Andrew’s Hespeler on a Sunday morning. October 2 will be no exception. Here are some highlights:
- We will be celebrating World Communion Sunday with a very special celebration of the Sacrament based on one of the most ancient written Christian liturgies ever found — from a book called The Didache or The Teaching of the Twelve. We will learn a few things about what the very first Christians believed happened when they celebrated the Lord’s Supper together.
- The Youth Band will be playing for the first time this fall: Remembrance (The Communion Song) (Matt Maher and Matt Redman)
Special music of the day will include: Menuet en Rondeau & Air pour Zéphire (Jean-Phillipe Rameau), Thy Table I Approach (Jan Bender), Let Us Break Bread Together (Arr. Carol Tornquist) and Christ is Made the Sure Foundation (Henry Purcell, Arr. Cindy Berry)
We will have a chance to speed our runners and walkers who are preparing for the “Jeff-a-thon” on their way.
We’ll update the standings on the “Pie in the Face” race for Anniversary Sunday.
Our sermon will explore some alternative and additional meanings hiding in our celebration of Communion.
