Our mission as a church is to bring the powerful grace, joy, and hope found in Christ to those who have little hope. We believe the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the source of hope and strength in any and every circumstance. We desire to live out and share with our community the hope that has transformed our lives. Christ has inspired more love, compassion, courage, and healing than any figure in history. He has changed us and we believe His love, mercy, grace, and healing power will change our city if we humbly, courageously, and graciously serve each other.
Inspiring our community to live out the hope found in Christ.
Starting with You
God wants a relationship with you. With each of us. You matter more to Him than you can ever fully realize.
Here at St. Andrews we seek to help you get to know Jesus in a way the changes and transforms your life. We are here to help you take your next step on your journey of faith. That next step could be growing in worship and devotion to Him, growing in relationship with others, learning how to serve and give generously, finding healing from life’s hurts, or discovering your God-given purpose.
We believe our youth and children are best served and mentored when they have multiple relationships with trusted adults in their lives. Our small group, children, and youth ministry is structured to provide those opportunities and relationships where our children and grandchildren are mentored in life and faith.
We have groups of all ages meeting throughout the week to help you and your family grow in faith together.
Growing in Service
We believe God has uniquely gifted each and every one of us with gifts, talents, and opportunities that help us live out His purpose in our lives. We are here to help you find ways to learn, serve, give, and develop your unique potential.
We are also dedicated to serving our community and world. We follow Jesus in this, who personifies giving up of oneself in order to help others and heal the hurts of our world today. You are welcome to join us and learn the joy that “its better to give then to receive.”
Mission Grants Available Now
Once again we are excited to offer Mission and Ministry grants to the people of our congregation. Last year we had several groups apply for grants including a group that made blankets with residents of a local shelter program, a backpacking trip for middle school youth, distribution of hygiene items and “Why Pray” books at a local family shelter and more. So get a team together (your small group, Bible study, coffee group, ministry group) and consider how you might be able to serve and reach out with the love and hope of Christ into our community. Check out a copy of the Grant Guidelines. Contact the church council through our main office if you have questions (Admin@stalc.org).
