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.

Special Congregational Meeting - Sunday, November 17 - 9:30 am
A special congregational meeting is scheduled to call a full time associate pastor at Saint Andrew.  The only business to be conducted at this meeting is to vote to extend a call to the pastoral candidate and is expected to take 10-15 minutes with worship to follow as normal.  To retain the confidentiality of the candidate’s identity within the pastor’s current congregation, synod protocols do not permit the council to reveal the identity of the pastor until the meeting. The special congregational meeting will take place: Sunday, November 17, 2019 at the beginning of the 9:30 worship service. Per our constitution, C9.01:  Authority to call a pastor shall be in this congregation by at least a two-thirds vote of voting members present and voting at a meeting legally called for that purpose.  Voting proxy or absentee ballots will not be permitted.
