Jesus Calls Us…Come and See! Come and Grow! Come and Serve!
St. Andrew is located in the Orchards area of Vancouver, Washington, east of I-205, between SR 500 and Fourth Plain Boulevard, on Gher Road between McDonald’s and Midas. The parking lot and main church entrance are easily available from Coxley Street, the east-west street between St. Andrew and McDonald’s. Surrounded by many fast food restaurants, St. Andrew is often referred to as the place offering “The Bread of Life.”
St. Andrew has a generous parking lot. Reserved visitor spaces are located in the parking area closest to Gher Road. Overflow parking is available on the side streets and in the strip mall parking lot east of the church. Click here for a Bing™ Birds Eye view.
The glass doors of the main entrance are surrounded by stonework and pillars. This entry gives quick access to the worship center and the church office.
Worship at St. Andrew is a blended service of traditional and contemporary musical selections. The service follows the four-part liturgical order of gathering, word, meal (communion) and sending. The order of service is easy to follow through projection and a printed worship folder. Some people are dressed formally for worship, but most of our worshipers are dressed casually. Many adults are in t-shirts, shorts and jeans.
St. Andrew is very supportive and accepting of children in worship. Parents need not be anxious about the commotion and noise made by children. Their participation in worship is important in learning this faith practice. A nursery for children 5 years old and younger is available Sunday mornings.
The Welcome Center desk is in the center of our main entrance area. There you will find a guest book for all first-time visitors to sign and brochures about the ministry of St. Andrew.
