FAITH FORMATION AT SAINT ANDREW

When a person is baptized at Saint Andrew, we pray for the Holy Spirit to stir up a “spirit of wisdom and understanding.” One of God’s greatest gifts to us is the opportunity to be curious.   Through intentional faith formation and the study of God’s Word, we strive to create a community of trust where questions are honored, doubts are shared, and faith grows over time.  The Lutheran tradition is rich with resources that can help us to deepen our sense of understanding for a life of faith that is enriched by the voices of scripture, reason, tradition, and experience.

LEARNING FOR LIFE

The Library at Saint Andrew provides a good blend of audio and visual resources and includes tools for Bible Study, discipleship, devotional practice, and entertainment.
