Empowered by God’s love, we help transform lives, communities and the world so that everyone may know Christ’s healing power.

We are at an important time in the life of our congregation. Great things are happening – people are coming to St. Andrew’s to experience the love and hope that Christ provides. Children and youth are filling our hallways, literally, as we set up adhoc learning spaces in hallways and offices during our Wednesday night and Sunday morning programming. Record numbers of people are coming through our doors, both from our growing membership base and the community around us, seeking hope and healing. We are building hope and transforming lives each and every day as we live out our mission to “Proclaim Jesus Christ, Live in Christ, Serve!”

In January 2019, we rolled out our capital campaign, HOPE LIVES, a new, bold initiative to build hope and transform lives with new and enhanced spaces for our growing ministry and our congregation responded like never before. Together, we move forward with God’s call to extend the message of hope even further.

Watch for additional updates on our about the campaign page and in church publications.
