We are a Just Peace and Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ.
YOU’RE WELCOME HERE!
We are radically inclusive and extravagantly welcoming. We are a church of Love In Action.
We can’t wait to meet you!
Welcome to St. Andrew United Church of Christ!
We are a progressive and inclusive expression of the Christian faith.
We are proud to be an extravagantly welcoming church that fully includes all people, regardless of race, sex, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, physical ability, mental ability, economic status, or faith journey.
No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here.
We celebrate the diversity God created us to be! Together, we are:
• Young and old
• LGBT and straight
• Multiracial and multicultural
• Snowbirds and year-round Florida residents
• Folks who grew up in the UCC and folks who are new to the UCC
Our open-minded and welcoming environment attracts members from Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice, Lakewood Ranch, Osprey, University Place, Nokomis, Ellenton, The Meadows, Gulf Gate Estates, Southgate, Siesta Key, Anna Maria Island, and from many other places in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. We are easily accessible from USF Sarasota-Manatee, the New College of Florida, the Ringling College of Art and Design, and Suncoast Technical College.
We are a member of Sarasota United for Responsibility and Equity (SURE) and the Gulfcoast Affirming Interfaith Network (GAIN).
SINGSPIRATION SUNDAY – AUGUST 12
Join us on Sunday, August 12, at 10:30 AM for our special Singspiration Sunday worship service!
Almost all of our Sunday hymns come from the UCC’s New Century Hymnal, and we usually have one from the UCC’s other hymnal, Sing! Prayer and Praise every week as well. We print hymns from the two hymnals in our bulletins every week.
Do you have a favorite hymn that you haven’t heard in a while? On Singspiration Sunday, we will dust off our hard copies of the New Century Hymnal and request and sing hymns to “make a joyful noise” together.
“Blessed Assurance”? We’ve got you covered!
“Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound”? We will make a sweet sound together!
A favorite Christmas hymn? Sure! Why not?
An oldie but goodie? Absolutely!
Bring a friend to church on this special and musical Sunday!
