Our faith formation program, Word of the Week (WoW), looks to share God’s Word for us from the Bible in fun, creative ways. We want everyone to know how much God loves us, AND the person next to us (or across the street, or across the world). With prayer and blessing, interactive lessons and hands on extras, it looks to build faith and relationships across the ages. Each week we sing and pray and bless, tell bible stories through drama & art, storytelling & puppetry, (& whatever else we can think of), make crafts, play games, do service projects, and share a meal (usually pizza).

Our 2018-19 theme invites us to think about how we walk with God. God invites us to live courageous, generous lives that celebrate the gift of life God has given to each of us. God invites us to honor and serve one another – to treat one another as a good gift of God. God invites us to join in loving and caring for the world and all that God made. Each week we’ll explore this ongoing invitation to walk with God.

WoW is intergenerational. People of all ages are welcome. Families learn together. Children come (and participate) with an adult – parent, godparent, grandparent, aunt, you get the idea. We all meet and eat, tell stories and make stuff, play and pray together.

Worship is the center of our life together. In fact, worship is an integral part of our identity. We are people gathered by the Holy Spirit around Word and sacrament. This gathering together of God’s people draws us closer both to God and one another. From the weekly "coffee hour" that follows Sunday worship to special events such as potluck suppers, family game nights and church picnics, we at St. Andrew value the importance of community and fellowship in our life together. Parish life at St. Andrew means sharing each other’s joys and sorrows. Whether we are celebrating the birth of a baby or grieving the death of a loved one, we are there for one another.

We believe that God calls us to reach out in Christian love to one another. While an important part of our commitment as members of a faith community includes caring for one another, much of our ministry is directed outside the walls of our congregation to our local community and beyond. We believe that Christ calls us to reach out in love to those who are most vulnerable and in need.

We believe that all we have comes as a gift from God and that it is our duty and joy to share our time, abilities and financial resources for the sake of mission. Our congregation is committed to giving over 10% (the biblical tithe) of its income in support of the wider church and other worthy ministries. We believe that our congregation’s example of "first fruits, proportionate giving" is something all Christians should practice. As stewards entrusted with the care of God’s good creation, we are also called to make ecologically responsible choices both individually and as a congregation.
