what to expect

NURSERY is provided each Sunday during the 10:00 AM service.  We have lots and lots of Hand Sanitizer bottles because little kids are just so… Inquisitive!

HOLY COMMUNION

The children return from Sunday School to their parents for the Holy Communion.  In the Episcopal Church all who are baptized are welcomed to receive the Lord’s Supper, and that includes children.  If your child is baptized in the Christian Faith they are also welcome to receive the Holy Sacrament. Please know that this is completely the decision of the parents’/guardians.

How We Worship

St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church is home to a variety of people coming from different church traditions. We encourage you to come exactly as you are. Whether you’re Baptist, Roman Catholic, Pentecostal, “Cradle Episcopalian,” or have never been to church before, we hope you will feel at home. You’ll notice some people bow, kneel, and cross themselves. We encourage you to engage the liturgy in a way that is comfortable or familiar to you. If you have any questions about why we do what we are doing, just ask! We would love to talk with you about it.

WE ARE BLESSED

 We are blessed.  Most of us (unfortunately) don’t think we are, but we are blessed.   If we can walk, talk, eat, digest, hear, sing, carry, pick-up, or bend over; if we have a job or have some money in the bank; if we have insurance or access to it; if we have a roof over our head, clothes on our back, and food in our tummy – WE ARE BLESSED.Since we are blessed, we are called by God to bless others.
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’     …Matthew 25:35-40 ESV

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

    …James 1:27 ESV

Welcome Statement

 We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, separated, straight, gay, transgendered, mighty rich, mighty poor, or mightily trying.

 We welcome those who are crying newborns, skinny as a rail, or aiming to lose a few.

 We extend a special welcome if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or can only sing into a bucket.

 You’re welcome if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up, or just got out of jail.

 We don’t care if you’re a “cradle Episcopalian” or a “cafeteria Christian,” or if you’re not sure what to believe.

 We don’t care if you have only seen the inside of a church through YouTube, think Hozier invented “Take me to church,” or haven’t been in church since your BFF from high school got married.

 We extend a special welcome to those over 60 who haven’t grown up yet, and to teenagers who think they’re already grown up.

 We welcome soccer dads/moms, NASCAR moms/dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte sippers, card-carrying NRA members and card-burning Socialists.

 We welcome vegetarians and junk-food aficionados.

 We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted.

 We welcome you if you’re having problems, or you’re down in the dumps, or if you don’t like “organized religion.” Hey, many of us have been there, too.

 We extend a special welcome if you blew all your offering money at the casino, still think the earth is flat, work too hard, can’t sepll, or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

 We extend a special welcome to those who are inked, pierced, both or undecided.

 You are welcome if you need a special prayer right now, don’t trust “religion” yet feel a spiritual tug, or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake.

 We welcome seekers, finders, tourists, wanderers, doubters, bleeding hearts… and you.

 This is your home.

What unites us is Jesus Christ, his Life, Death, and Resurrection.

The rest is details.
