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!


Join us Sunday, all are welcome!


Services are at 8:30 am and 11 am.

Spiritual Practice Mini-Retreats

First retreat is August 25th

People are looking for more. There is more to life than what many of us are experiencing. The more we are looking for is the transformation of our own lives by the power and presence of God. Jesus says it this way, “For what will it profit you if you gain the whole world but forfeit your own life? Or what will you give in return for your own life? (Mt. 16:26)”  An ancient church father from the 4th century said, “Our heart is restless until it rests in you (God).”   Spiritual practices are an invitation to enter more deeply into the process of spiritual transformation and choose life from that place. These mini-retreats are an opportunity to forge a connection between our souls and our day-to-day lives. Spiritual transformation is the process by which Christ is formed in us for the glory of God, the sake of others, and the abundance of our own lives.   The primary intent of teaching various ancient and modern spiritual practices is to create the right conditions for us to encounter God in the places where we need it most.   Lest we are tempted to view this as a glorified self-help project or an occasion for more activism, these practices embrace spiritual transformation as a process full of the mystery of God’s power to change lives.
