Visitors and guests are especially welcomed at St. Andrew's, and we look forward to greeting you and helping you feel comfortable.
The worship setting at St. Andrew's is unique in that we literally gather "around Word and Sacrament" (a major Lutheran principle). Both the preaching spot and communion table sit at the very center of the room, with rows of seats facing in on four sides. This setting lends itself to the creation of a special sense of intimacy and community as we gather for worship. Here the Word is proclaimed from scripture, and the promises of that Word are personally extended to all in the Holy Communion meal.
Immediately following the service, we invite you to share in a time of conversation and refreshment in the fellowship hall.
