Sunday Morning Worship

Worship at St. Andrew is diverse, creative and progressive. Each service is unique; featuring a variety of music and weekly communion.

Worship takes place at 8:30 am in the sanctuary. We will worship outdoors (weather permitting) at 10:30 am. Please bring your chairs for the outdoor service. The 10:30 worship is live streamed on Facebook.

Join us to celebrate Intern Pastor Grace's year of ministry with us at a BBQ in her honor on Sunday, July 30th after the 10 am service. We'll set up tables and chairs on the back lawn, bring out the outdoor games, and enjoy hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers and salads, sides and dessert that everyone has brought to share.

Join us live or watch anytime on Facebook or on YouTube.
Worship videos will remain available anytime you wish to access them - see links above.

Children’s Church - We are taking a summer pause for July and August. See you in September.

Coffee Hour - Join us after each Sunday service for coffee, goodies, and community.

Masks are now optional in worship and meetings.

Bible Study Resumes September 20 @ 9:30

Bible study will resume on Wednesday, September 20. Employing a video series from the N.T. Wright collection, we will begin an in-depth look into Paul's brief, but powerful, letter to the Colossians.

Here's a snapshot of discussion over the next few weeks:

Understand the background surrounding this wonderful but small letter of the Apostle Paul to the Colossians.

Describe the exalted picture of Jesus Christ as the Apostle Paul describes in this epistle.

Recognize the beauty of the poetic phrases found in this epistle. Embrace the manner of life to which believers in Christ should pursue.

Develop a broader understanding of what it means to be a King Jesus follower in a countercultural way.

See how certain controversies are handled by the Apostle Paul.

All are welcome to join this wonderful time of fellowship and conversation.

Thanks to our Partners and Friends we are Moving Toward our Goal of $225,000 for the outdoor sanctuary.

oslogoThe campaign for St. Andrew’s open-air chapel and grounds project is in full swing.

We can’t wait to experience elements of the project as envisioned: a beautiful open-air structure for worship, summer camps, coffeehouses and more; gardens honoring Pastor Jim Warner and others; expanded organic garden beds providing fresh veggies for the food pantry; the comfort of knowing that a loved one might be laid to rest here within the embrace of the St. Andrew community; and meditative moments walking the labyrinth in the natural beauty of this place.

It is not too late to make a commitment over two years and join partners who are supporting the open-air sanctuary project! Preparations for site work are already beginning and we will soon see progress towards the vision of a beautiful multi-purpose space with outdoor chapel, gardens, labyrinth and memorial garden.

If you would like to take a look at the open-air sanctuary webpage, click HERE. If you would like to download a commitment form follow this LINK. If you would like to make a donation to the open-air sanctuary follow this LINK.

Commitment forms can be placed in the offering plate on Sundays or returned to the church office in person or by mail. Barbara is in the office Tuesday through Friday mornings.

Our Hallway Photo "Gallery" Need Updating

We will be taking photos for a new photo gallery on the bulletin board in the hallway. The bulletin board is a useful tool for getting to know the name of that person who always talks to you at coffee hour.....whose name you can never remember! We do not plan to do a new photo directory at this time.

You will be able to sign up for a time slot on several days at the end of the month and in October. The following options are planned so far:

Saturday, September 23rd, 9 AM to Noon

Sunday, September 24th, after both services

Wednesday, September 27th, 9 AM to Noon

Help Pack 10,000 Meals for Local Food Pantries

Please plan to join us in supporting those who are food insecure in our community. We'll be packing 10,000 meals of Minestrone Soup and Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal for local food pantries on Sunday, September 17th. Set up is at 8:30 with packing beginning at 10. Get a team together or just come yourself and we'll add you to a team. Just sign up in the lobby! We partner with Matthew Martin and End Hunger New England.
