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.



WORSHIPPING WITH CHILDREN

At Saint Andrew, children of all ages are welcome as integral members of the body of Christ, and we welcome the sounds and activity that accompany them! We have children’s Spark activity worksheets for non-readers and readers. The worship service has children’s message time where children gather in front. Plus, there are a few spaces and activities designed for children to experience and participate in worship:

At the doors of the Sanctuary, kids can pick up a busy bag to take into worship. These bags include crayons and paper, a book, blocks or a puzzle, and a foam communion set.

 

The nursery is available for families with infants and toddlers as an additional space as needed. There are books, toys, rocking chairs, and a changing table.

A Prayground is located at the front of the Sanctuary that is intended for families with infants to early elementary students, recognizing that small kids are often more engaged when they can see what’s going on. Families can enjoy extra floor space for children that may need to stand or move around and soft and quiet toys for busy hand.

WEDNESDAY GAME DAY!

Game Day offers a new opportunity for the congregation to promote a spirit of joy and positive relationships and an opportunity for you to invite others to share in our Saint Andrew joy! There are a variety of games including Checkers, Scrabble, Monopoly, Cribbage, Yahtzee, Dominoes, Uno, and several decks of cards. Play Bridge, 500, Euchre, Sheepshead, Whist, Hearts, or whatever card game that you most enjoy. Bring your own game if you have an idea not included in the above list.
Game Day is every Wednesday except the first Wednesday of the month, and begins at 10:30 am lasting until everyone is done playing games! We will teach you how to make the coffee and all are welcome to bring treats to share.
