Worship & Music
Worship at St. Andrew’s is both liturgical and uplifting. A different worship setting is usually used each week, utilizing the new Evangelical Lutheran Worship hymnal with its ten settings for liturgical worship, the With One Voice hymnal, the Hymnal Supplement 1991 and other appropriate resources. Holy Communion is a part of every Sunday service. We use a gluten-free communion bread and offer a choice of wine or white grape juice. Worship is led by the pastor with the assistance of lay readers, communion assistants and assisting ministers from among the membership of the congregation. Worship also always includes a provocative Children’s Word (sermon), a favorite of both adults and children. We invite you to worship on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. We gather around God’s Word and Table to be fed by Christ through Proclamation and the Meal.
Please consider yourself welcome!
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.
This is our adult and older youth handbell choir which accompanies hymns, plays anthems, and leads processionals during worship services. They will usually rehearse on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m.
The Chancel Choir practices in preparation for regular worship leadership. Please contact Director Linda Underwood if you wish to join the choir. Come join in the fun!
Baptisms of children and adults are a delight to the Church. However, since through baptism one becomes a member of the Church and the congregation, baptisms are only done where there is the expectation that participation in the Church is the intention. Baptisms are scheduled only after consultation with the pastor via email.
Non-member weddings can be scheduled after consultation with the pastor, and include three mandatory pre-wedding sessions with the pastor in addition to a rehearsal and the wedding ceremony. Fees for facility use, wedding hostess, organist, and pastoral services are negotiated depending on need.
Non-member funerals can be scheduled following consultation with the pastor. Pastoral services for non-member funerals on or off-site are possible depending on the pastor’s schedule and availability.
