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:
  • See God more clearly in lives and all creation.  All are invited to come and see Jesus in our worship and hospitality.
  • Love God more dearly as followers.  Everyone is invited to come and grow in Jesus through our study and prayer groups. 
  • Follow God more nearly in acts of service.  All are invited to come and serve Jesus through WHO- Winter Hospitality Overflow, our Christian preschool, and Orchard’s Kids Club.

God’s dream for St. Andrew is our vision—

bringing healing and wholeness to lives and all creation.


 

 

God's love is always with you!

You Are Invited to Godly Play Training August 10-11, 2018

What is Godly Play?

 

Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond.

The result of a lifetime of research and practice by theologian, author and educator The Rev. Dr. Jerome Berryman, the Godly Play® method is a curriculum of spiritual practice exploring the mystery of God’s presence in our lives. The Godly Play curriculum engages what is most exciting about religious education: God inviting us into—and pursuing us in the midst of—Scripture and spiritual experience. Godly Play practice teaches us to listen for God and to make authentic and creative responses to God’s call in our lives. Godly Play is a creative, imaginative approach to Christian formation and spiritual guidance. Godly Play has a foundation of 40+ years of research and practice. Godly Play values process, openness, discovery, community and relationships. Godly Play models the worship life, stories, symbols and rituals of Christian congregations. Godly Play allows practitioners to make relevant and personal theological meaning. Godly Play nurtures participants to larger dimensions of belief and faith through wondering and play.
