“Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts,” (1 John 5:21)
What takes God’s place in our hearts? Idols. Our struggle may not be with a golden calf, but what about social media, secular pressures, food, substances, comfort? The list goes on and on. If you have felt sluggish in your walk with God – if you long for the joy of the Lord – if you wish to take your spiritual maturity to a new level, then join us February 23-25 for our annual Women’s Retreat. Marcia Lebhar and her daughter, Dr. Sarah Hall, will help us examine the role of idols in our culture and how to overcome them through the lens of Scripture. Holy Joy awaits us on the other side of these idols, so don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity.

About our speakers
Marcia Lebhar is a storyteller, teacher, and exhorter with a passion for the Scriptures, and a passion to see ‘ordinary’ believers in Jesus discipled and equipped to be extraordinarily used of God. Her column, Discipleship Journal, can be found on the website of the Gulf Atlantic Diocese. A former executive director of CMJ USA (Christian Ministry among Jewish People), Marcia is married to the Gulf Atlantic Diocese’s bishop, Neil Lebhar. The Lebhars have four children and eight grandchildren, and they consider the friendship and mutual ministry they share as a family to be one of life’s greatest treasures.
Sarah Lebhar Hall, Ph.D. is an adjunct professor of Hebrew and Hebrew Bible at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, The King’s University, and Trinity School for Ministry. She has also spent many years in youth and college ministry, and is currently on the leadership team for an Anglican church plant in downtown Tallahassee, FL. She is married to the Rev. Jon Hall and has two children, Benjamin and Miriam.
Dr. Hall especially loves writing for the church. You can find some of her recent articles for Christianity Today here:
Elementary-aged kids (1st through 5th grade) and their parents are invited to join us for an FX: Family eXperience. We will explore the theme of knowing God’s love during this season of Lent. We will also preview what books of the Bible we will be learning about for the next few months.
No need to RSVP and childcare will be provided for younger siblings. For more information contact Katie Arndt (KArndt@StAndrews.Church or 843.284.4329.)

This spring, we are re-establishing Prayer Ministry at City Church! If you’re interested in learning how to pray for others, or serving on the prayer team, we’re offering a three session training series.
The three sessions will be held on February 28th, March 7th, and March 14th, all at 6:00 in the evening.
Attending this training series doesn’t automatically commit you to serve on the team, but we do ask that everyone interested in serving on the team attend the training, even if you’ve been previously trained at St. Andrews or another church. If you are simply interested in learning more about how to pray for others and grow in your prayer life, you are welcome to attend.
Anyone who does desire to join the team will be invited to apply following the training. (Membership of City Church/St. Andrews is a requirement for serving on this team, but again, you are welcome to come to the training even if you’re not a member yet.)
If you are planning to attend the training, please register below.

The season of Lent lends itself to quiet reflection, prayer, and a slower pace, practices that are easily edged out in modern life. In an effort to intentionally make space for prayerful contemplation during Lent, women are invited to meet in Hampton Park for about a half hour on Saturday mornings during Lent.
The goal is a time to rest in who the Lord is while asking Him to reveal how He’s moving now in our midst. Coffee will be provided afterwards, for any who would like to linger and talk.
Beginning this spring, Stephen Puckette and Alex Adcock will be leading a life group for college men. Between the 9:00 and 11:00 services on Sunday, March 4th, there will be a quick huddle to discuss more details. If you are interested in learning more information, register below!
Contact Stephen with any questions at email@example.com.
Join us Sunday, March 11, immediately following either the 9 am or the 10:45 am service for a cup of coffee. Whether you are looking for a Life Group, interested in volunteering, or new to St. Andrew‘s and have questions – this is the place for you. The drop in coffee is free and there is no RSVP necessary.
If you have any questions contact Kyle Holtzhower (KHoltzhower@StAndrews.Church or 843.284.4346).

How many of us take the water that comes from our taps and faucets for granted every morning? When is the last time you got sick from the water from your home? We may not see it and rarely hear of it, but every day millions of people have to walk miles and miles just for water. Most of the time, the water they can find is contaminated and makes them sick. From this, they are unable to work or go to school, which leads to a perpetual state of poverty, frustration and many other emotions in these communities. However, since 1999, Water Mission has sought to change this, bringing hope of a better future and better life in providing safe affordable and sustainable water to over 3 million people, from rural villages in Honduras to refugees fleeing from conflict in Burundi. These projects are life giving, but also bring transformational change that leads to restored relationships and prosperous communities. Through this year’s Walk, we as City Church have the opportunity to play a role in continuing this change and mission by walking for life, for hope and for water. We encourage you to join our team as a walk participant, or by making a donation to support this vision of life, hope and water.

Every Spring and Fall our Men’s Ministry embarks on an incredible journey of fellowship, worship and freedom connecting men to the presence and power of Jesus Christ. Throughout the hike you will experience intimate worship with the Lord through spiritual teachings on the trail; praise, worship and fellowship around the camp fire.
Do not let a lack of experience or a lack of gear keep you from this adventure. We can help you with both.
Mark your calendars for these required pre-hike meetings at the Mt Pleasant campus:

- Sunday, April 8, 12:15 – 1:30 pm, Chapel
