On Sunday morning, a greeter will welcome you and can help with questions and directions to the Nursery.  You will get a service program from the usher as you enter the church, and you're invited to sit wherever is most comfortable for you.

Nursery care is available each Sunday from 9 a.m. to noon for infants and children through age 3.

Stained Glass windows & Stations of the Cross

St. Andrew's stained glass windows tell a continuous story of the life of Christ, beginning with the Annunciation and ending with Pentecost. See and learn more about our windows here. The Stations of the Cross depicts the final hours, or Passion, of Jesus. See our beautiful Stations of the Cross here.

Funeral Customary

St. Andrew’s Funeral Customary is a document that contains helpful information not only about planning funerals but also about living wills, organ donations, powers of attorney, and other end-of-life considerations. It is a very helpful reference for yourself or for loved ones. Click here to download your copy of the Funeral Customary. Please contact the church office if you would like a printed copy.

Service Dogs Welcome at St. Andrew’s

Animals are one of God’s great gifts to us.  The loyalty and affection of our pets and service animals can be for us a reminder of the way God loves us – completely and abundantly.  What a blessing that some animals are able to serve as helpers and companions to humans who need a little extra help!  Service dogs are always welcome at St. Andrew’s.

Connect With Us!

We’d love to meet you. Our doors are open and all are welcome to any of our events, all of which can be found on our events page. Any of our clergy and staff are also available and happy to meet for coffee, any time. Their contact information can be found on the staff page.

Follow us on Facebook and on Instagram. Visit our blog.

Another great way to get to know us is to hang out at the Coffee Bar on Sunday morning – open 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Sunday from September through May. We have our very own coffee: St. Andrews Blend - a blend of Ethiopian, Guatemalan and Sumatran coffees – in Bold, Mild and Decaf. Our new blend was developed for us by Aromas Coffeehouse Café and Bakeshop.
