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.

A message from Bishop Jaech:
My heart is heavy as I grieve the killing of 50 sons and daughters of God at the LGBTQ dance club in Orlando. Hatred has once again erupted into violence, leaving families shattered and lives torn apart. I urge you to pray for all those devastated by this event: the wounded, the slain, their families, all LGBTQ people everywhere, and our entire nation. As we mark this week the year anniversary of the Charleston Nine Murders, let us pray for all who are victims of violence, including our African-American sisters and brothers. May our grief and horror compel us to advocate for sensible gun legislation and work for peace in our communities. The power of God to bring life out of death is our one hope in this time.
