Mark Harmon, Rev. Dr. Matthew BoultonScripture: Luke 10:25-37

I hope you will join us for a great Sunday of worship and fellowship this Sunday at Saint Andrew. As we enter into the second week of our fall stewardship campaign, we continue to think of the many ways we share our gifts for ministry with the community and world.

At the 8:30 service, Mark Harmon will preach on 2 Samuel 7:1-17, as we continue our series in the Narrative Lectionary.

We will have a special guest preacher for the 10:45 service. Matthew Myer Boulton is the President of Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis. He is a former associate professor of ministry studies at Harvard Divinity School—and he happens to be married to former Saint Andrew ministry intern, Elizabeth Myer Boulton.

He is the author of Life in God: John Calvin, Practical Formation, and the Future of Protestant Theology (Eerdmans 2011), God Against Religion: Rethinking Christian Theology Through Worship (Eerdmans, 2008), and is a co-editor and contributor to Doing Justice to Mercy: Religion, Law, and Criminal Justice (University of Virginia Press, 2007).  He is currently at work on a book on Christian preaching.

Both he and his wife, Elizabeth Myer Boulton, are ordained ministers in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and together they have two children:  Jonah and Maggie. 

We look forward to welcoming him—and each of you—in worship on Sunday.

Rev. Erin Wathen, Senior Pastor

Our Shalom Statement

Saint Andrew Christian Church is a shalom community; a gathered people, seeking God’s peace, justice, healing, and wholeness in every part of our lives and world.

Celebrating our diversity, rejoicing in our unity, we welcome and affirm all children of God of any color, class, sexual orientation, age, gender, ability, or thought.

As members of the family of God, we share our beliefs, doubts, struggles, and growth.

Recipients of God’s boundless grace, forgiveness, and love, we in turn offer our gifts and invite the fellowship, gifts, leadership, and spirit of all who share God’s passion for shalom.
