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!

SYNOD EDUCATIONAL GATHERINGS

Who is My Neighbor and To Whom Am I Being a Good Neighbor?
In lieu of the Synod Assembly this year, we're hosting Educational Gatherings to bring people and conversations together. Join fellow ELCA members in our Synod! All are Welcome! Our faith and our community living experiences in particular, train us to look beyond borders and see all people as our neighbors. We understand that our well-being is hinged on their well-being. "Who is my neighbor" is probably not a question we often ask ourselves. However, lately we've noticed that many of us can relate to the man who asks Jesus "Who is My Neighbor?" because we have learned to think globally. We may know the correct answer to the question, but we may not actually know who our neighbors really are or how to relate with them. In these three regional Synod Educational Gatherings lay members, rostered ministers and you will have opportunities to expand your horizons and learn about many different people, and how we, as individuals and as God’s church in the ELCA, can support, welcome and connect with those in our global and immediate neighborhoods.
 

All are welcome!
