St. Andrew Presbyterian Church seeks to be a dynamic Reformed community of faith that proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ by reaching out to others in compassionate service, celebrating our faith together in worship, encouraging all ages to grow personally and spiritually, and nurturing and supporting one another in Christian love.

St. Andrew Presbyterian Church is a reformed and reforming community of faith in Christ where we work for reconciliation and social justice and where we can be theologically bold, spiritually generous, and radically welcoming.

We are striving to overcome all divisions that separate the peoples of God from God and from one another, whether race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, age, physical or mental ability, education, socio-economic status, or cultural background.

We invite you to join with us in creating this beloved community.

St. Andrew Presbyterian Church welcomes you in the name of Jesus Christ to come and visit us on Sunday mornings at 9:30, at 5301 Ponderosa Ave. NE. One block east of San Mateo. Across from Montgomery park.

New Beginnings Reports

The congregation of St Andrew Presbyterian church went throught a process called "New Beginnings". It involved working in small groups, using guided discussions, to develop a vision for the future of this congregations. The assessor's report was developed by an independent outside group and is an assessment of the current congregation and its role in the community. The other reports describe the results of the small groups discussions, with increasing detail going from the Overview Report to the Detailed Report. These results have been reviewed by the congregation at a meeting on August 10th and will be submitted to the Session for approval.
