How long are services?

Do you offer childcare or Sunday School?

We currently do not offer childcare or Sunday School, but we do hope to do so as our church continues to attract children and youth. (Our newly-formed Board of Christian Education is making arrangements to launch a regularly scheduled Sunday School program in the near future. Stay tuned!) We always welcome the glow and honesty children bring to worship. There’s a Children’s Time every Sunday during worship. We also have activity bags for children to use during the service.

Is there fellowship after church?

Yes, after each Sunday service, Stewart Hall is open for a time of fellowship and refreshment. We invite you to join us for a snack, beverage, and conversation with some new or old friends. Rev. Paul will look forward to meeting you!

Does St. Andrew UCC offer a Bible and Study Group?

Yes, our Study and Discussion Group meets most Thursdays at 10:00 AM. Sessions include discussions of various cutting-edge topics and authors.

What should I wear?

We encourage you to dress the way that feels appropriate to you. We believe that God cares more about the state of our hearts than what we wear. Some people come dressed in their Sunday best. Others dress more casually. The most important thing is to be you!
