Parish Profile

Parish Profile – St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church Parish Profile

The Episcopal Church – The Episcopal Church has an ancient and storied history, yet we are as relevant today as we ever were.

The Episcopal Church celebrates diversity, honors tradition and transforms hearts and lives. We strive to live by the example of Jesus Christ, welcoming the stranger and the outcast, helping our neighbors, and offering forgiveness and love. We walk the “middle way” between Protestant and catholic traditions. The liturgy (the way we do church) and the sacraments (actions that we believe are visible signs of grace) are very important in the life of the Episcopal Church.

Often, we also walk the “middle way” in our theology and debates. We don’t believe that everyone must agree with each other – but that we can enter into thoughtful, respectful discussion on a range of issues.

The Episcopal Church has between 2-3 million members in about 7,500 congregations in the United States, the Virgin Islands, Haiti, Europe, and other areas in North America. We are part of the larger Anglican Communion, which has 70 million followers around the world.

PRAYER

 

  • Morning Prayer is held every Monday at 10:00AM. All are invited in a time of spiritual reflection on Scripture and prayer. Prayer requests are collected in person, in the prayer box, Facebook Messenger, and via email at office@standrewspickerington.org.
  • Prayer Net is our online prayer offering at St. Andrew’s. A collection of dedicated and faithful people have committed themselves to pray for the needs and concerns brought to them.  Do you have a request?  Email the church at office@standrewspickerington.org and they will forward it to our Prayer Net.   The amount of details you wish to share is up to you. You can give as much or as little as you want.  God knows your request. Don’t feel comfortable emailing a prayer request? Drop it in our Blessing Box outside the church.
  • Prayer Team is our in-worship prayer offering. Each Sunday, during Holy Communion at the 10:00 AM service we have a Prayer Team stationed in our back chapel to pray for any concerns, thanksgivings or more. Again, you do not need to give them any details unless you want to. God knows your request. Prayer Net requests are prayed for at this time as well.
  • Additional Prayers. Each Wednesday at our 12:30 service of Holy Eucharist we pray for the needs of the parish and requests which come into our Prayer Net and any concerns our Prayer Team has given us – with the permission of the person requesting prayer.
  • Our Sunday Prayer Rotation. Each Sunday at our 10:00 AM service we pray through a “prayer rotation” of needs in the community, including the people of an Episcopal Church in the Diocese, the people of a different (or no) denomination in the community, the people of this parish, those serving in the military, and time is given at all services for people to lift up other concerns whether out loud on their lips or silently in their heart.
  • Birthday and Anniversary Prayers. On the first Sunday of each month (sometimes can be moved to the next week if falls on major holiday) we ask people in the congregation to come forward who have birthdays and/or anniversaries that month and we ask God’s blessings on their “new year”.
  • Men’s and Women’s Share Groups’ Prayers. We have several men’s and women’s groups who meet weekly to encourage one another in their walk with Christ. They offer up prayers for the parish as well.
  • Tuesday Prayers at our Adult Bible Study at 7:00PM. Both groups lift up prayer concerns given to them.
