Sunday Morning: Morning worship begins each Sunday at 8:30 am and 11:00 am. The worship of the the Living God in Christ is central to the life of St. Andrew Presbyterian Church. Vibrant prayer and praise and thoughtful, engaging messages for children and adults combine with a rich variety of music for a vital experience of worship.
8:30 am + 11:00 am
We welcome you to join us Sundays for worship. St. Andrew is rooted in the Reformed Presbyterian heritage, yet reflects a diverse array of liturgical elements from many different traditions. The morning services use diverse styles of music from hymns and global songs to jazz and contemporary music. Following the first service, coffee is available in the Fellowship Hall; this is a wonderful way to meet the family of St. Andrew and new people.
We welcome families with children and infants to our worship services. You are welcome to keep your child with you during worship. Children’s bulletins and worship bags are available in the Narthex as you enter the Sanctuary. Infant and toddler care (up to age 2) is provided in the Nursery, which is in the East Wing of the church. Children’s Time, for ages 3 years through kindergarten, meets in the Castle Room in the East Wing. This is a time of unstructured play, special activities, and continuing worship following the Time for Young Disciples.
Sunday School for All Ages:
9:45 am – 10:45 am | September – May
Children and Worship: Children are welcome in our worshipping community! But we understand that our families seek to meet a variety of their children’s needs during worship, so we offer a variety of children’s activities. A nursery is provided for infants 2 years of age and younger during each service. Children’s Time, for ages 3 years through kindergarten, meets in the Castle Room in the East Wing. Parents please note that our Children’s Time now begins with a Chapel Service. Each week Cheryl or Kristen will lead the brief service, follow- ed by activity time for the children. Children’s Time meets in the Castle Room, room 407, and is for 3 year olds through Kindergarteners. For parents and children who wish to listen to the sermon outside the Sanctuary, there is sound and seating in our Narthex.
Worship Planning Team: The worship planning team consists of Matt Paul, Kyle Otterbein, Matthew Penning, Lora Morgan Dunham, and Patti Benson. They meet weekly to facilitate all the aspects of worship throughout the year. Some of these are: a prayer-themed Lenten series, the design and creation of a prayer labyrinth, summer picnics and praise (in conjunction with the Fellowship Team), and the 28:16 stories.
Worship Leaders: Serving as a worship leader is yet another way to live out St. Andrew’s purpose and new participants are always welcome. Contact a worship planning team member or the church office for more information.
Ushers and Greeters: All congregants are encouraged to volunteer to usher or greet at one worship service every six months. This is an important ministry, and one that makes all feel sincerely welcomed at St. Andrew. Our elders serve the first Sunday of the month, and our deacons fill the second Sunday of the month. The remaining Sundays are filled by those who sign up in the Usher/Greeter notebook at the Welcome Center in the Narthex.
Music is an important part of each worship service at St. Andrew. There are several opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. Click here for more information.
