Welcome, and thank you for visiting Saints Andrew & Matthias online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.
We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
Prayers for Our Troops
Our church offers prayers for servicemen and women at every Morning Prayer or Evening Prayer service.
PRAYER FOR ALL IN THE SERVICE OF OUR COUNTRY
O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defense, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
The Fifth Sunday after Easter
O LORD, from whom all good things do come; Grant to us thy humble servants, that by thy holy inspiration we may think those things that are good, and by thy merciful guiding may perform the same; through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
For Fruitful Seasons
¶ To be used on Rogation-Sunday and the Rogation-days.
O GRACIOUS Father, who openest thine hand and fillest all things living with plenteousness; We beseech thee of thine infinite goodness to hear us, who now make our prayers and supplications unto thee. Remember not our sins, but thy promises of mercy. Vouchsafe to bless the lands and multiply the harvests of the world. Let thy breath go forth that it may renew the face of the earth. Show thy loving-kindness, that our land may give her increase; and so fill us with good things that the poor and needy may give thanks unto thy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

In Time of Great Sickness
(BCP p. 45)
O MOST mighty and merciful God, in this time of grievous sickness, we flee unto thee for succour. Deliver us, we beseech thee, from our peril; give strength and skill to all those who minister to the sick; prosper the means made use of for their cure; and grant that, perceiving how frail and uncertain our life is, we may apply our hearts unto that heavenly wisdom which leadeth to eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer For Our Police
Almighty God, we beseech thee to pour thy blessing upon our country's police forces. Strengthen and protect them in all danger. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Do you know how to make a person with anger issues really angry?
Just tell them that they have anger issues.
While people do make us all angry from time to time, we as Christians are called to forgive others.
Mark 11:25 “And when you stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.”
There are many exhortations in the Bible for us to pray. The Gospel for this Rogation Sunday from the sixteenth chapter of Saint John's Gospel is one example of Jesus telling His disciples to ask God in prayer “that your joy may be full”.
Rogate means “Pray ye.” This Sunday is known as Rogation Sunday or Rogate Sunday because of the three Rogation Days which follow in which, by tradition, the English church has always prayed for the success of the farming in this new year's growing season.
For our prayers to be God pleasing however, we must remember that they must be addressed to the one true Triune God and we must ask through the merits of Jesus Christ and not through our own worth.
We are reminded by Christ himself that if we have faith in God our prayers will be answered, but that we must forgive others if we are to expect forgiveness from our Heavenly Father.
We cannot, as Christians, afford to hold grudges against those who have wronged us.
We must be willing to follow the example of Christ who on the cross was willing to forgive.
Christ tells us “But if ye do not forgive, neither will you Father, which is in heaven forgive your trespasses”.
We all need forgiveness.
None of us is without fault.
Forgiving those who have done us wrong is difficult. Our natural inclination is to make them feel the pain we felt by getting “even” with them.
Our loving Redeemer shows us the better way.
By Christ's sacrifice on the cross we are reconciled to God and can boldly pray to “our Father”in heaven. We need to remember to use that great privilege, not just once a week in church, but daily, anywhere and anytime.
If we are to please God with those prayers however, we must forgive others as we wish to be forgiven by the saving blood of Christ.
