Sunday Worship Services
What you can expect . . .
St. Andrew's offers three different worship services on Sunday mornings to meet your needs. Below is a brief description of each service to aid you in your selection. If you need directions to join us this Sunday, please click here.
At St. Andrew’s, worship is a family experience. While we offer Nursery services during all three of our worship times, children are welcome in our Sanctuary at all times. The 8:30am and 11am services have an interactive Children’s Message, where children are invited to the front for a special message focused on their needs. The third Sunday of the month, our children are the Children’s Message as they collect a Noisy Offering--think quarters, dimes and nickels in a metal pail--to benefit Rise Against Hunger. We also offer Activity Bags that contain quiet activities to engage children before and after the Children’s Message. Please see one of our ushers if you desire to use of one of these bags during your time with us.
Our 8:30 worship features a traditional service at a time to accommodate early risers. Those who attend will enjoy conventional hymns accompanied by piano, organ, and a "pick-up" choir.
Our 9:45 contemporary service adds a modern, relaxed feeling to Sunday worship. Visitors will enjoy a range of classic hymns to contemporary songs performed by our volunteer praise band.
Nursery services are available for children under 2. With Sunday School classes offered for everyone 2 years old through adulthood.
Like our 8:30 a.m. service, our 11:00 service features a traditional worship style. Those who attend this service will enjoy conventional hymns accompanied by piano and organ and an inspiring anthem performed by our Adult Choir.
Children's Church is also available during this service for children in grades K-4 following the Children's Message every 2nd and 4th Sunday.
St. Andrew's participates in Communion on the first Sunday of the month and on special designated Sundays throughout the year (i.e. World Communion Sunday, Easter service, Christmas Eve service, etc.), except the 9:45 service has Communion every Sunday . We believe in an "open table" in which all are welcome to receive God's grace.
Communion is usually administered by intinction, whereby participants partially dip the consecrated bread into the juice before consuming it. Gluten-free wafers and individual cups of juice are available for those with dietary restrictions.
