New service schedule allows for enhanced discipleship, fellowship
St. Andrew’s has introduced a Saturday evening service, and moved to two Sunday morning services, with a return to a dedicated time in between for discipleship for all ages, and a greater focus on fellowship. This change brings with it an opportunity for:

  • all of our children, who now attend Sunday school at two separate times, to attend class together;
  • greater fellowship opportunities between services; and
  • more time for parishioners and clergy to interact on Sunday mornings.

New service schedule

  • Saturday, 5 p.m., Traditional liturgy and Holy Communion, with organ
  • Sunday, 9 a.m., Traditional liturgy and Holy Communion, with organ and choir
  • Sunday, 10:15- 11 a.m., Discipleship for all ages and fellowship time
  • Sunday, 11:15 a.m., Contemporary worship with Holy Communion

Bishop's Visitation

Bishop’s Visitation
St. Andrew’s was blessed to have the Rt. Rev. Peter Beckwith, assisting bishop in the Anglican Diocese of the Great Lakes, visit with us on the Feast of Christ the King on Nov. 22, the last Sunday before Advent. Bishop Beckwith preached at our three services, and celebrated the Holy Eucharist and administered the rites of Reception and Reaffirmation of Baptismal Vows at the early Sunday service.


All SaintsAll Saints Children’s Procession
Young Saints of St. Andrew’s turned out in full force on All Saints Sunday last week for the annual Children’s All Saints Procession. Above, Fr. Ron Baird shares the story of the origin and real meaning of Halloween — All Hallows Eve — and the meaning of All Saints Day. At left, children share candy in a demonstration of how God’s blessings multiply. Click here to download the latest edition of “The Net” with more photos from All Saints Sunday.


Harvest Festival

St. Andrew’s Harvest Festival
Despite rain in the morning, our 5th Annual Harvest Festival and Rummage Sale on Saturday. Oct. 24, was a huge success. We celebrated the bounty of God’s harvest by gathering for some great fellowship, ministry, and service to our community. We welcomed the community to our festival, which featured music by members of “Calling of Levi,” our contemporary worship band; 104.9 The River; and a hayride, pumpkin patch, food and games for all! A special feature was an appearance by Silver and Natasha, two of the alpacas from Circle G Alpaca Farm of Alexandria. Thanks to Jeff Schramm for bringing these two crowd pleasers!

Come and See
Cross Andrew was a simple fisherman, called by God to do a great thing ... to follow Jesus and tell others about him. Here at St. Andrew’s, we embrace Andrew’s calling as our own, and believe our name reflects our mission of “transforming the world through Christ — one heart at a time.” We are excited to offer our community a new Anglicanism for the 21st century — an Anglicanism that embraces Biblical truth, and proclaims the uniqueness of Jesus the Messiah, the only Son of God who has come to redeem the whole world through the power of his transforming love.

We have found the Messiah! Come and see! (John 1:41)
