MISSION & VISION
Engage. Connect. Grow. Serve.
Our mission is to lead people to experience God's grace through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Our vision it to help people engage in a lifestyle of worship, connect in Christian community, grow to be disciples of Jesus Christ, and serve each other and the community.
We want everyone to feel comfortable when they join us for worship. Come as you are. All are welcome. For our families with young children we offer a nursery and kids programming.
Our nursery (6 months-2 years) and preschool (3-4 years) drop-off is located in the Children's Center. Our elementary school (K-5) drop-off is located in Powell Hall. There is also a cry room available in the Sanctuary.
Confirmation is viewed as the sealing of the covenant made in Holy Baptism. In many United Methodist congregations, preparation for confirmation begins when children enter their middle school years. We believe this is a time when young people begin to move from concrete thinking to abstract thinking and is when many people begin to make lifelong faith decisions. During these middle school years youth are seeking a sense of belonging. Belonging to the community of faith is an appropriate response to that developmental task.
BECOMING A MEMBER
Becoming a member means that you are ready to commit to helping St. Andrew’s accomplish the mission of leading people to experience God’s grace through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. A membership class is offered quarterly where people interested in membership can learn more about the mission, vision, and values of the church. At the end of the class we ask people to consider taking the step of commitment to membership. Members promise to support the church through their prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.
