Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we will be holding all Holy Week and Easter services online-only.
As part of this year’s Lenten experience, we have created, do-it-yourself prayer bead kits, which can be used to make a sliding prayer counter, bracelet, or necklace. Beads have been used as a tool for spiritual practice for millennia drawing seekers closer to the Divine with each bead touched and prayer offered.
Each Sunday during Lent, you can obtain your weekly devotional prayer based on that week’s sermon. As you say the prayer, rest a single bead between your thumb and forefinger. Take a deep breath. Pray. Hold your bead or beads using them to stay focused and centered on the devotion. Or each week, slide one bead toward the cross to symbolize your movement through Lent, toward the crucifixion and resurrection. We will also have blank prayer cards available for you to write your own individual prayers for the clergy team to pray over each week.
This Lent, we are going to experience and witness our Lenten journey together using #standrewprays on Instagram and Facebook.
Be serious, be contemplative, be quirky, be creative, be yourself. In this chronicling of prayer we hope that it brings you closer to who you are and what matters to you. Remember have fun, invite God in authentically, and share your journey with us.
Join us for a virtual Lenten study via Zoom phone and video chat.
For centuries, Holy Week and Easter have been the most sacred time in the Christian calendar. Join us for this year’s Lenten study to learn about the biblical and spiritual roots of this ancient tradition.
