Due to the COVID-19 virus, the Session of St. Andrew’s has voted
to suspend inside activities, not including worship, at our facility.
Our worship service is each Sunday at 10:00.
We have began in-person worship services along side our parking lot and Facebook Live services. Masks and social distancing are required.
As this is a fluid situation, we will continue to monitor local, state, federal, and common sense guidelines. We will update as needed.
The congregation of St. Andrew’s has proven to be great Prayer Warriors, continuing to support, love, and nurture one another. We pray for each other, our community, and the world always, but particularly and mightily during this difficult time as our sense of normalcy changes day by day.
Hanging of the Greens: November 27th from 10-1pm; we need volunteers to do the following:

• Nativity set up on table
• Place candles in the windows or prepare luminaries if we have the supplies
• Photographer-this is to take pictures during the hanging of the greens for FB and website
Contact the office if you are interested. Thank you all!
