St. Andrews Christian Church

We visited St. Andrews Christian Church ( in Carrollton on Sunday, January 2nd.

The friendly atmosphere was set by greeters and  by announcements of activities during the week via slideshow and by members of the congregation from the pews.

This small auditorium has delightful acoustics.

The Old Testament Reading was Ecc. 3:1-8 by Robyn Gerko.  The New Testament Reading was Matt. 25:31-40 by Russell Daniel.

The congregation joined in several hymns and praise songs.

A wonderful sermon “Tending the Embers” was read as a story from a volume published by the Albany Institute,  Gifts of an Uncommon Life, by the pastor, Rev. Randy Smithson.

Music was provided by Lisa Morales, with a special guest violinist, her cousin, Janelle Davis.  Ms. Davis played a Baroque violin.

This church really provides ways to be close to its congregation. It includes the membership in so many community activities.
