WELCOME

TO SAINT ANDREW

The ministry of Saint Andrew Lutheran Church is “open to all who wish to express their faith in God through Jesus Christ by worship, learning, witness, and service.” Whether you are new to the church, have stepped away for a time, or have been connected to the church your whole life, you are welcome at Saint Andrew.

COVID-19 SAINT ANDREW MEMBER SURVEY AND INFORMATION UPDATE

While we were not able to gather as we had hoped, by the work of the Holy Spirit, we are connected as the body of Christ. Even though we cannot gather in the church building, Saint Andrew’s mission and ministry have not ended. Openness is more important than ever at a time when so much is “closed.”

We are worshiping online, communicating weekly via e-mail, and working through the church directory to call every member, but we recognize that we may have missed you. Through this survey, we hope to reach those we have missed and hear feedback on how we might better be “open” to you – and stay connected at a time when it is necessary to remain apart.

The survey was mailed to every family. You may return it in the envelope provided to you. You could also scan your answers and email them to info@salc-wausau.org or use our online form to complete the survey by clicking here.

CURRENT INFORMATION ABOUT WORSHIP AND MINISTRY ACTIVITIES

A letter from the Church Council of Saint Andrew was mailed to all member families the week of May 18th. The letter outlines our current understanding of when “in person” worship and communion may occur. A number of listening session via Zoom are also being scheduled so that you may gather more information for your own knowledge and well being. This will also be an opportunity to ask questions. More information will be coming out shortly about the listening sessions.

WEEKLY WORSHIP SERVICES - JOIN US ON-LINE

In in effort to continue to gather for worship and prayer, Pastor Jenn and Pastor Justin will be live on Facebook with a Midweek Reflection on Thursdays at 12:15 and Sunday Worship beginning at 9:00 am.

Giving in Gratitude for 40 Years of Ministry: $40 for 40
In honor of the life and legacy of Saint Andrew, members are invited to consider sharing a gift of $40-one dollar for every year of the church’s ministry-or a gift of any amount. This special appeal will be used in three significant ways: 80% of funds will be allocated for a Sanctuary renewal project (lighting updates, flooring, etc.); 10% will be shared with the SALC endowment and local hunger efforts; 10% will be tithed to the greater church in thanksgiving for our connection to the ELCA. Watch your mail for more details.

WE ARE ONE BODY – We Stand Together
A message from local ELCA Pastors.

Pastors from the ELCA Wisconsin River Valley Conference of the East Central Synod of Wisconsin have prepared a video of support and unity during this pandemic. Their message is based on 1 Corinthians 12: 12-26.

It’s okay to grieve and hope | Message from ELCA Bishop Eaton | April 17, 2020

God is bringing about something new for the world and for the church – and we have hopes and dreams for that – but we are waiting for God to reveal that. So, in the meantime, in our anxiety, in our joy, in our hope, let’s remember: Christ is risen! Christ is risen, indeed! Alleluia!
