No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church! We are a community of believers that extends love and grace, just as it has been extended to us. Our mission as a church is to make “More People, More like Christ.”
What are our services like?
On Sunday mornings, you will experience a worship service with both traditional and casual elements.
10:30 a.m. Traditional Worship
This is our traditional worship service while attempting to stay in touch with 21st-century faith development. Worshiping families encounter an intergenerational experience where both the very young gather with people of every age group.
The service combines several different styles of music, some rich in tradition in a very comprehensible format. Other music reflects newer modes of musical praise. Instruments on any given Sunday vary from the massive pipe organ to guitars, brass, percussion, and piano.
This service is followed by a “meet and greet” session where numerous people greet one another while enjoying coffee and other refreshments in a casual setting.
What should I wear?
We encourage people to come as they are and to be comfortable. You’ll see people dressed in a wide range of clothing, from jeans to dress clothes. We want you to feel at home, so come as you are most comfortable. We are a congregation of all ages.
How often do you take Communion?
The service of The Lord’s Supper is served on the first Sunday each month. We explain all the services as we go along while encouraging the use of everyday language in prayer, reading, and preaching. We ask that only those that profess a personal faith in Jesus Christ participates in this holy sacrament.
What about my children?
Your children are welcome to attend worship with you, or if you prefer,
you may bring your children (age 5 and under) to the Nursery before the service or before the Sunday School hour.
Until further notice the Nursery is open by reservation only.
If you will need nursery care during worship,
please contact Martha Pate (409-866-5965 or 409-718-1150)
by the Wednesday preceding that Sunday’s worship. Thank you.
The Nursery is located near the northeast corner of the sanctuary.
How do I get connected?
At St. Andrew’s, we value community. We try to provide many ways for individuals to get connected to our church. You’ll hear about a lot of these opportunities from the pulpit on a Sunday morning, as well as in the Sunday Bulletin.
9:15 – 10:15 am
Connect with us while you grow in your faith. Click here to see all of the different Adult Sunday School Classes we have to offer during this Sunday School period.
Many of our adult members are active in a small group to experience deep personal Christian fellowship, support, and care for one another. These groups grow in faith, do ministry together, explore and develop their spiritual gifts, build relationships.
How do I become a member?
Want to be an active member here? The only prerequisite to join this church is that you have professed faith in Christ. You can transfer your membership from another Christian church. You can also be baptized if you haven’t been. If you haven’t gone to your church of membership in a long time, you can join us by simply sharing your faith journey.
Active membership means that your faith is in Christ. Moreover, because of your faith, you have been baptized, you have been received into membership of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, and that you have joined us in work and worship. That, in a nutshell, is an active member at St. Andy’s. Just ask the pastor or other congregational leaders for more information.
