Welcome to Saint Andrew
Saint Andrew, 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
A season of learning and growing!
Late spring and early summer bring opportunities for getting out and exploring, getting away for the weekend, and plenty of time for play and rest. In the life of the church, the season of summer is also the season of Pentecost - a time of learning and growing through the gift of the Holy Spirit. Wherever the summer takes you, we hope you will stay connected to the nourishing gifts of Word and Sacrament.

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!
Safe and Warm...
"While our daughter was sick, she and I would always put our arms around each other and say that we were "safe and warm." As she got closer to the end, I would tell her that she would always be "safe and warm in God's loving arms." Everyone at Saint Andrew has, without hesitation, embraced and opened their arms to us. Saint Andrew is a "safe and warm" place, assuring us that God's arms are around all of us together."

Confirmation concludes for the year with a celebration!
The confirmation program at Saint Andrew is a time of learning and growing, centered in relationships. Students begin weekly study their 7th grade year and conclude by affirming their baptisms at confirmation worship in the fall of their freshman year. Students, mentors, and parents met for a celebratory picnic after putting in a hard year of work learning about faith in life. Below are pictures from their time together on April 29th.
