Jesus Calls Us…Come and See! Come and Grow! Come and Serve!

Do One Thing

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.
