St. Andrew’s Welcomes Special Guest Rev. Dr. Karl Jacobson to Life U

By |2020-11-09T14:35:10-06:00November 6th, 2020|News & Updates|

Beginning November 9, Life U participants will have the chance to discuss meaning and understanding of the Bible through a special class with Pastor Karl Jacobson. Jacobson will teach a Life U discussion group via zoom for 3 weekes, beginning November 9 at 7PM: IS EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT THE BIBLE WRONG?! A lightning-quick overview of the Old and New Testaments through the lens of common misconceptions, assumptions, and outright blunders. For many people the Bible is just a little bit scary; it’s big, it’s long, and it’s serious business. Even for many of us raised on the Bible there are ways we think about the Bible that aren’t terribly helpful, things we think we know about the Bible that are quite right. the reality is that as familiar as the Bible may be to us, most of us don’t know the Bible nearly as well as we think we do. The three sessions of “Everything You Know About the Bible Is Wrong” will help us enter into reading the Bible and making sense of it for our daily living. Pastor Karl Jacobson, Pastor Sarah Breckenridge and Pastor Mike Carlson. Mondays at 7pm (Nov. 9, 16, 23) The Rev. Dr. Karl Jacobson (M.Div., Luther Seminary; Th.D., Providence) serves as Senior Pastor at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Minneapolis, Minn. Prior to that, he was Assistant Professor of Religion at Augsburg College. He is contributing author to Crazy Talk: A Not-So-Stuffy Dictionary of Theological Terms (Augsburg Fortress, second edition 2017) and Crazy Book: A Not-So-Stuffy Dictionary of Biblical Terms (Augsburg Fortress, second edition 2019), Invitation to the Psalms: A Reader’s Guide for Discovery and Engagement (Baker Academic, March 2013), commentary on the Book of Numbers in the Fortress Commentary on the Bible: Old Testament and Apocrypha (Fortress, 2014), as well as commentary on selected psalms [...]

Update on Church Office Systems

By |2020-11-06T11:31:45-06:00November 6th, 2020|News & Updates|

As you may know, our church office systems began experiencing technical difficulty last week and as a method of standard procedure we immediately took all systems offline to investigate further.  Upon investigation of this, we learned that we were targeted by a cyberattack intended to essentially lock all data. We have engaged outside help in the areas of technical, security and operations to: Understand the source of this incident and advise on best steps in an attempt to reduce the likelihood of future such incidents. Enable our leadership to continue to focus on mission.   While our investigation is ongoing, in the interest of sharing as much as we know, I share with you the following. We know that online financial transactions were not targeted. The reason we know this is because they use a third-party processor and we do not hold information from online financial transactions in our system. We are still in the process of understanding what happened, but believe this to be a routine attack targeted towards many organizations and businesses. Here’s how you can help: Pray for your church staff -- that is working around the clock to assist, understand, and help in this investigation. These are difficult times for all of us to be disconnected and this seems like one more “challenge” on top of the many we all experience as a result of operating in conditions that are anything other than business as usual. Remain vigilant with your information.  The news is filled daily with organizations and businesses much larger than ours that are regularly attacked with what appears to be the sole goal to create fear and distress for others. Know that we will NEVER ask you for financial information or passwords via email. And you should not provide this information to anyone [...]

A Celebration to Remember

By |2020-11-06T11:17:30-06:00October 25th, 2020|News & Updates|

On Sunday, October 25,  we welcomed 9th Grade confirmation small groups, one at a time, to the campus for a Faith Walk experience, which culminates in the Affirmation of Baptism, laying on of hands, and pastoral blessing. Thank you to St. Andrew's pastors and staff who've agreed to be part of hosting this experience (which includes being outside for four hours in our early winter weather!) for our youth and their immediate families. On the weekend of October 31-November 1, we observed first communion with 30 students.  Students joined from online and in-person worship as we affirmed our beliefs and participated in Holy Communion as one church. Do you have confirmation photos you'd like to share?  Send them to connect@saintandrews.org
