To the Church in Corona
a six week exploration of Paul's letter to the Philippians
This spring and summer we have found ourselves in a unique and challenging position as the Church. Unable to gather and worship in the ways that many of us cherish, we are finding new ways to be the Church and to be together.

This summer we want to invite you to join us for another new way in which we will learn, grow, play and be in community together! Starting July 6th, we will be starting a six week exploration of the book of Philippians with opportunities for all ages to participate. While we will all be working our way through the same book together, we will be offering a number of ways to engage. These will include online discussion groups, coloring pages, optional journaling bibles, opportunities for memorization, and a weekly email with a reflection from our clergy and resources.

For our youngest participants we will also have a special guest making his way to homes across the Madison area - Flat Paul! We will be sure to keep you updated on his travels throughout the summer.

As we prepare to dive into this book together next week, you will find sign-ups for many of the mentioned opportunities below. Please do take a moment to sign up and join us on this journey through Philippians!
Meet Flat Paul!

DISCUSSION GROUPS
Each week we will provide reflections from the St. Andrew's clergy on the portion of Philippians that we are reading for the week. In addition to this, we hope to form several discussion groups that will meet throughout the week for 45 minutes-1 hour.

MEMORIZATION GROUP
Have you ever tried to memorize scripture? Taking the time to not only read, but memorize portions of the Bible then mean you are able to call it to mind throughout your day and be surprised about how it informs even the most mundane moments of your life.

If you are interested in trying to memorize some key verses in the book of Philippians we will be create a group of support, encouragement and celebration. This group will only meet twice over the six weeks, but will communicate more frequently via email. Sign up here.
