Jesus Calls Us…Come and See! Come and Grow! Come and Serve!
Welcome!We are glad you have found us! St. Andrew is all about reaching people with God’s radical acceptance and grace in Jesus Christ to make lives whole. The journey of faith begins by recognizing how Jesus calls us.
A Christ-follower in the 4th century by the name of Augustine wrote, “Our hearts are restless until they rest in you.” In the restlessness of his heart, he heard the calling of Jesus. You might know that same restlessness in your heart. We know it too.
We have found rest in God and invite you to join our prayer day by day to:
God’s dream for St. Andrew is our vision—
bringing healing and wholeness to lives and all creation.
Lent meditations start in March
Ash Wednesday Worship is Wednesday, March 5 at Noon and 7:00 PM with Dispensation of Ashes and Holy Communion. Lent Worship Services featuring the faith stories of church members will be each Wednesday between March 12 and April 9 at noon and 7 pm. Soup supper is served at 6 p.m. in the gym.
Gospeled Lives: Encounters with Jesus by John Indermark is our study for the season of Lent. The book allows us an opportunity to think more deeply about what it means to hear and respond to Christ’s word. We meet individuals who heard Jesus speak a word about their life. Some responded with joy and gratitude; others ignored or rejected his word to them. There is a reading for each of 30 days, including scripture, exploration of the passage, prayer, and a call to encounter Jesus Christ yourself.
Many small groups are available beginning the week of March 12, where you can interact with others to explore the book together. The groups meet on Sunday mornings and during the week. There is also an online Facebook group. Check the signup in the church foyer for details.
