Becoming a Member


We are so thankful you are interested in joining St. Andrew Presbyterian Church. Please speak to the pastor or a greeter about this, or indicate your desire on our attendance books and you will be contacted. The Session (our governing body) is charged with accepting new members into the church, and will, ultimately, take action on your request. 

Joining a PC(USA) church is done in one of three ways:

  • A public profession of faith (and baptism, if not previously baptized)
  • A certificate of transfer from another church (the church office will make the transfer request of your former church)
  • A reaffirmation of your faith
Depending on the method of joining, there is training with the pastor of 1-3 meetings. You will meet with our elders and ask any questions or share any thoughts you may have. Our Session will then vote to admit you as a member.  Finally, you will be introduced to the congregation at a Sunday morning service.

Christmas Worship Services

Blue Christmas Worship
Wednesday, 12/15, at 6:30 p.m.

For many people, Christmas is a particularly difficult time as they remember the loss of loved ones and the other losses of life. While some rejoice at the delights of the Christmas season, others feel their pain more deeply. Gather with us in the Sanctuary to acknowledge all these losses, to grieve those who are no longer with us, to remind ourselves of the faith that sustains us through all of life, and to worship God who came to be with us and promises that even when we walk through the dark places, we have nothing to fear.

Two Christmas Eve Services

4 p.m. Family Service
Music, scripture, and a special children's message will focus on the young (and the young at heart) at St. Andrew's early Christmas Eve service. The service will last approximately 40 minutes. Childcare will be available.

7 p.m. Communion Service
We will welcome the coming of the Christ Child with music, scripture, a homily, and Communion. The service will end in candlelight. There will be no childcare available for this service
