Each Sunday we weave together music, scripture, prayer, meditation, Biblical teaching, and a beautiful space to create a worship service that includes both traditional and contemporary elements.
We also include special music, such as children's choir, quartets, harp, soloists, and guitar. We frequently use other media as well such as dance, and reader's theater. Banners and other displays create a beautiful environment for worship.
guided by the Holy Spirit, we believe it is our responsibility to take seriously our baptismal vows to nurture, educate, and guide the church community in the teaching, example, and living word of Christ.
St. Andrew strives to meet the Christian Education needs of all it's congregants. With adult classes, children's classes, youth group, nursery, groups for women, men, and people who like to read, we are working toward the goal of a church of people whose spiritual growth is a life-long journey.
Christian Education meets after worship service on Sundays from 11:00-12:00. Christian Education is provided for children from 2-18, and for adults. Nursery care is available for children under 2
This is our passion, serving others. We have a large range of programs and activities that serve our church family, our community, and our world. An example of our hands on mission work is our Neighborhood Ministries. St. Andrew ministers to poor and homeless friends in the Montgomery Park neighborhood. This ministry includes providing sack lunches, clothing and toiletries and a hot meal on Sundays after worship. We welcome contributions of clothing, blankets, sleeping bags, back packs and toiletries in the church office.
Fellowship is an essential part of church life, and at St. Andrew we excell at it. In addition to coffee hour, parish potlucks, Thanksgiving breakfast,youth group, book group, Presbyterian Women, Men's Bible Study, Wednesday evening programs, mission work, committees, Famous Friends, Alternative Christmas Faire and the Entertainment show, St. Andrew is the kind of place where people feel welcomed. From the homey rocking chairs, to warm smiles and hugs, St. Andrew is truly a church family.
In addition to the work or our pastor, our deacons provide connection through the parish network. They send out cards, visit people, and provide support to church members in need of a little extra help after the birth of a child, or surgery. St. Andrew is a place to lean on during tough times, and to celebrate during times of joy.
