Operation Inasmuch

In Matthew 25 Jesus said, "Inasmuch as you serve the least of these, you serve me." On Saturday, April 1 we are called to serve. Operation Inasmuch is a national movement that motivates churches to move out of the sanctuary and into the streets to serve their communities.

Following the 8:30 a.m. service, St. Andrew's Lutheran Church volunteers of all skill levels will be helping in a number of ways including packing and delivery food, performing chores at a nearby house, rolling plastic bags for the homeless, creating health kits and worshiping with a group of inmates.

If you are being called, Saturday April 1 is the perfect day to answer. We hope to see you then.

Communication Coordinator/Office Manager – Part-time

St. Andrew's Lutheran Church, 1416 Broad River Road, in Columbia, SC is seeking an individual to support its ministerial staff and Church Office operations. This is a part-time hourly position averaging 24 hours per week. Compensation range, based on skills, qualifications and experience, is from $14.00 to $16.00 per hour. Applicants will be self-motivated with a positive attitude, solid work ethic, and excellent written, verbal and organizational skills.


In 1517 Martin Luther helped start the storm that was the protestant reformation.  The question lingers however; so what? What does it have to do with us today?  The truth is that many of the issues that were first and foremost on the table during the time of the reformation are still present today. How do we understand the sacraments?  How are we "saved"?  Who speaks with authority?  Why are donuts so important in church?  Okay, well, not that last one. The rest of these are explored in contemporary dramas.  No monks, priests, or any old deceased people.

Fake news?

We have been hearing a fair amount about "fake news" stories posted on-line.   It seems more and more we have to wonder what we can and cannot believe.  In this week's Gospel text Joseph is asked to believe the ridiculous, namely that Mary is with child, and this baby is of God.  Joseph hears the word, and believes.  Does it remove all doubts from his mind? We don't know, but I personally don't think so.  Does it answer all his questions about God and what He is up to?  Certainly not.  I will never pretend to have all the answers.
