This is a brand new undertaking for St. Andrew, so please forgive any hiccups there may be in taping.   

Important Update from the Board of Elders at St. Andrew

    October is here and fall is officially in full swing. I love the changing of seasons as this time of year gives us a wonderful view of God’s creation with all the colors and variety of weather. With fall comes change to St. Andrew as well. ECC and confirmation class have started. We have 5 perspective confirmands this year. They are meeting twice a month on Saturday mornings.

    Starting October 4th, we will be changing our worship schedule as well. We are going back to two services at 8:00am and 10:30am. Both services will be inside with Communion. We will still stream outside on FM 103.9 for those of you who are not comfortable with being inside. We will have an usher deliver bulletins right before service starts. We will bring Communion out while weather allows but once cold sets in you will either have to walk in or set up an appointment with Pastor to receive Communion. You can walk in for Communion if you feel comfortable. If you will be staying in your car, please park on the east side by the garage, facing church as we do currently so we can see how many of you are outside and to make distributing bulletins and Communion easier. We will have someone outside to help park cars. If you are coming inside, please park in the first 3 rows in normal slots. We will not be utilizing the Communion rail as people will walk up single file keeping distance between each other. Pastor and an elder will be wearing gloves and a mask during distribution. Unfortunately we will not be offering common cup at this time.

   Pastor would like to start up family education hour and Sunday School right after 8:00 service for those who feel comfortable to attend.

    We hope doing 2 services will help with social distancing and we do encourage you to come in if you can. Masks are encouraged, please bring your own as we will not be able to supply them. Please understand that we hope this is temporary as we want to get back to one unified service at 9:00 eventually. Obviously the situation is always changing and this could change again very quickly. As we do this for awhile, we will probably make adjustments. Our goal is to give you the best and safest worship choices we can. We appreciate your patience and support.

   Please contact Pastor, an Elder, or the church office if you are going in for surgery, having a hospital stay or have anything else you think we should know about.  We are concerned for our members but if you do not tell us what is going on, we will not know to contact you to see if you would like a visit or would like to be included in our prayers.

    This is your church home and we are your church family so we are very interested in what you think.  Please contact one of the elders and let us know if you have any concerns, questions, need help or just want to talk.  We are here to help you in any way we can.
