Welcome to Saint Andrew
Saint Andrew Lutheran Church, located on the north side of Rib Mountain, serves the wider community of the Wausau area as a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The ministry of Saint Andrew is "open to all who wish to express their faith in God through Jesus Christ by worship, learning, witness, and service." Mission Statement
Welcome back to church!
"All are Welcome." This is a common theme at Saint Andrew that is not intended to be a nice catch phrase that sounds inviting but rather a challenge for us to practice those words and live them through inttentional invitation and engaging participation.
Whether you are here every week, or you have been away for the summer, or it has been years since you have walked through the front doors of a church, fall is a great time to say "welcome back." With fall approaching, we return to a more regular pattern of life and ministry through Saint Andrew. New this fall is the addition of a third worship service for Sunday morning, a slight revision to the Sunday school schedule, a staffed nursery, and several Bible study opportunities. All these and more are sure to bring about a spirit of change,challenge and opportunity to connect more fully into the life of Christ's church. Whether returing after being away or coming for the first time, please know that "all are welcome" for Christ is the one who invites and promises to meet us as we gather in his name.

A community that is loving...
"I am so grateful for the time I spent as a confirmation small group mentor! Spending two years with the young ladies and gentlemen, witnessing their growth as individuals and in their faith, provided me with great satisfaction!! However, I believe it was my own growth in my faith and knowledge of the bible that provided the greatest satisfaction! I hadn't been in confirmation, or any faith study group, since I was a teen. If you desire to live in a community that is more loving, accepting, and faithful to God, mentoring our youth is a great place to start!! And the bonus is that you will also grow to be more loving, accepting and faithful to God as well!!"
(Sheri is a confirmation mentor and has been a member of Saint Andrew since 1999)
12:15 & 6:15 pm 8:00 & 9:30 am
Weekly worship services are opportunities to encounter God's Word, to share a meal at the Lord's table, and to be sent into the world to serve. Throughout the Church Year, people of faith gather in worship to recall, proclaim, and participate in the mystery of Christ's life, death, and resurrection. Whether you have been to church before or are seeking to grow in a community of faith - come and hear about God's love for you at Saint Andrew, a place that is open to all!
