Welcome to our website:
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”
We hear these words every Sunday at St. Andrew. Various elements of our worship service originated from the Bible ages ago – our greeting comes from 2 Corinthians 13:13. As the annotation for this verse in The New Oxford Annotated Bible says: “the grace of Christ expresses and leads one toward the love of God, and the love of God when actualized through the Spirit, produces communion with God and with one another.” To be graced by Christ with the love of God through the Spirit so that we live in communion with God and with one another is the purpose of Christian worship. “Be with you all” means we are called to welcome everyone in the name of Jesus, absolutely everyone.
You can learn more about us from our website, and we hope you will explore it. We also hope you will worship with us and give us the privilege of learning more about you.

Why We Aren’t Meeting in Person (Again)
We are committed to worshipping in person again -- when it is both safe and responsible to do so.
We are commanded to love our neighbor. This often means prioritizing our neighbors who are most vulnerable: our neighbor who is more at-risk than us; our neighbor who is in the medical field, working to fight off this disease. Furthermore, the Bible teaches us that the most sacred law God gave us is to preserve life. We discerned that the best way to preserve life and love our neighbor was to not create an opportunity for a large group to gather – at least for now.
