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.
We have regular Adult Education following Sunday Morning Worship. Click here for the Fall 2019 Schedule.
The Pieceful Quilters meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month (except December) at 9:30 a.m. Simple quilts/comforters are made for the homeless, each new family in the House Next Door project, high school graduates of the congregation, and any others in need. Sewing skills are not necessary. There is time for brown bag lunch and fellowship. All are welcome.
CARING/COMMUNION LUNCHEON (Next: 9/14/19 & 12/14/19)
St Andrew’s Caring Committee welcomes all V.I.S.P. (very important special people) senior members, family or friends to share in the fellowship of quarterly Caring Communion Services and Luncheons. Each celebration begins with a brief communion service in the sanctuary at 11:30 a.m. and is followed immediately by the luncheon, prepared and served by committee members in Meyer Hall. If you would like to join us, please contact the church office so that we may include you in our next gathering.
