  • What do you remember about the first Apostle, Andrew?
    Without some research, I personally can’t think of much about Andrew. He is one of the lesser known Apostles, and mentioned only briefly in the Bible.
    However, his message goes deep. John 1: 41, “The first thing Andrew did (after he had met Christ) was to find his brother Simon and tell him we have found the Messiah.”
    Then, in John 6:8-9, Andrew introduces the boy with five small loaves and two small fish to Jesus who then fed 5,000.

    The reception will take place in the new fellowship hall on the second floor of the building.
    The family requests no gifts.
