In order to keep God’s people safe during the time of COVID-19, we are worshiping virtually via Facebook Live each Sunday morning at 10 a.m. Viewers may access the service then or at any time afterward.
Although the pandemic has brought many challenges to us, it has also awakened creativity in our worship services borne of those challenges. Our Sunday services include live preaching and music. In addition, both vocalists and instrumental musicians often participate from home via prerecorded videos. Children and adults alike regularly help with worship leadership via readers’ theater style scripture and liturgical readings from their homes. The photography talents of our congregants often serve as backdrops to other parts of the service. We are grateful to be able to worship God in these new ways.
We still celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month and encourage each worshiper in her or his own home to remember the Lord’s Supper together, even though we are in different spaces.
When we no longer have to worry about COVID-19, we will resume our in-person worship activities.
Join Us This Sunday
St. Andrew worships God together each Sunday at 10 a.m. Led by our pastor, our worship service includes a sermon, scripture readings, children’s sermon, prayer, and offering.
Worship at St. Andrew is a combination of traditional and contemporary with music led by a vibrant blend of instrumentalists and vocalists. Nurseries are available for infants through 5 years old during the worship service as well as during the education hour.
The Lord’s Supper is usually served the first Sunday of the month, as well as at other special times of the year. We have an open table (all may participate).
Jesus said, “I am the Bread of Life.”
In the last meal before his death, Jesus shared a simple meal of bread and wine with his friends, the disciples. During that meal Jesus spoke of the bread and wine as being symbols of his body which would be broken and his blood that was to be shed.
Communion is a meal that remembers this last meal of Jesus. In taking bread and wine, we trust that this will remind us of the love of Jesus, provide us forgiveness and strengthen us to do the work to which Jesus calls us.
At St Andrew Presbyterian all are welcome at the Table, even those who may bring their doubts and their questions.
On the first Sunday of every month we celebrate this meal and are assured of the love and grace of God that is open to everyone.
Worship music at St. Andrew ranges from traditional hymns and anthems accompanied by piano, organ, and choir to newer praise music led by a small praise combo of instrumentalists and vocalists.
Each Sunday, the Chancel Choir meets at 9:00 am for our Weekly Rehearsal. Music for that week and the following week are rehearsed as well as music for special events. All abilities and ages are welcome to attend. Our Chancel Choir performs each Sunday during the program year including Cantata, Music is the Message, Easter Sunday and travels around the country making a joyful noise. Please consider joining us for one of our weekly rehearsals
Celebration Bells is St. Andrew’s hand bell choir for experienced ringers, 5th grade through adult. Celebration Bells meets in the choir room on Wednesdays from 7:00-7:45.
Music Makers, St. Andrew’s children’s choir for ages 4-6, meets to sing and share, and they regularly perform for morning worship. They practice in Room 14 behind the sanctuary on Wednesdays during Kirk Night from 6:30 – 7:00 p.m.
The Praise Combo is comprised of percussion and amplified acoustic instruments. The Combo helps to lead worship with modern arrangements of familiar hymns and contemporary praise music.

Jesus said, “Let the children come to me”
We believe that the Sacrament of Baptism is a sign and seal of the promise of God’s grace. When anyone is baptized, the baptismal waters are placed on their head to remind us of God’s faithfulness in welcoming us all into the family of the Church. When Jesus was baptized, he heard the voice of God saying, “You are my beloved, with whom I am well pleased.”
In our baptism we are reminded that we, too, are the beloved of God and that this love is given before we are even able to respond in faith.
Both the parents of the child and the congregation have a vital role to play in ensuring that those baptized are nurtured in the faith so they may grow up knowing the love of God.
For more information about baptism or to request baptism, please contact the pastor.
Children in Worship
St. Andrew Presbyterian Church believes strongly in the centrality of worship in the life of the Christian community, and that includes children!
Worshiping with young children isn’t always easy! It’s one of those parental tasks that often seems to have absolutely zero chance of success but which pays huge dividends in the long run.
Find out how we include children in worship and help them connect with God each Sunday.
Join us at 10:00 a.m.
