Following the 9am service, we will be meeting together in small groups to discuss the blessings that surround St. Andrew's - those that you bring, and those that are provided for you. What does the future of St. Andrew's look like to you? What does it need to look like for you? Come be part of the discussion and help to plant the seeds and nourish our blessings. Don't miss out on this great opportunity of growth and nourishment!

During the summer months, we will have ONE Sunday service at 9am. These will be Family Services meaning that there will not be any Sunday School or nursery services available. Families of all ages and sizes are welcome and heartily welcomed in the church for our Sunday service.
Fr. Blaine will also be on Sabbatical at that time, but we have a wonderful line-up of guests through the season. Please join us!
