who we are

St. Andrew’s is a Christ centered, mission focused community of faith that strives to be the hands, feet, heart and voice of Jesus. We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.

The Episcopal Church celebrates diversity, honors tradition and transforms hearts and lives. We strive to live by the example of Jesus Christ, welcoming the stranger and the outcast, helping our neighbors, and offering forgiveness and love. We walk the “middle way” between Protestant and catholic traditions. The liturgy (the way we do church) and the sacraments (actions that we believe are visible signs of grace) are very important in the life of the Episcopal Church.

Often, we also walk the “middle way” in our theology and debates. We don’t believe that everyone must agree with each other – but that we can enter into thoughtful, respectful discussion on a range of issues.

The Episcopal Church has between 2-3 million members in about 7,500 congregations in the United States, the Virgin Islands, Haiti, Europe, and other areas in North America. We are part of the larger Anglican Communion, which has 70 million followers around the world.

We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.

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.

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.


 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
