Summer Childcare & Nursery

All ages are welcome to join us for stories, crafts and snacks in the Morning Glories room during the 10:00 am service, for childcare. Parents, please pick up your children for communion or at any time through the conclusion of the service. Summer nursery is provided in the Morning Glories classroom during the 10:00 am service.

The Adventures of FLAT JESUS!

Flat Jesus, inspired by the Flat Stanley literacy project, reminds us to keep Christ at the center of our lives even, or especially, when we are far from our church home.

This summer, take Jesus along for the adventure: take Flat Jesus on vacation, camp, out to dinner, the park, the zoo, to exotic locations, sporting events, or all your favorite local sites - wherever you and your family go!

Document your adventures: Print out your very own Flat Jesus HERE or pick one up in the Chapel Lobby to color and cut out. Be sure to take photos of Flat Jesus and everything you do together! Share them with your St. Andrew’s family: email your photos to Carol at so they can be displayed. Submitted photos will be posted in the lobby so that everyone can see what a fun-filled summer Flat Jesus had with everyone at St. Andrew’s!

This project is fun for ALL AGES!

Music Notes

Hymn 623: O What their Joy

It is rare to have the words of great philosophers in the hymnal, but here are the words of the great medieval philosopher Peter Abelard (1079-1142). Because of the difficulty of his teaching and his relationship with the nun Heloise, Abelard was surrounded by controversy most of his life. This hymn looks beyond earthly life to contemplate with longing the resolution of all controversy and contradiction (a focus of Abelard’s work) in the peace of the heavenly Jerusalem. The modal tune we sing, dating to the 16th century, is well-suited to the words. This hymn is a favorite of Fr. Alan's. --Donna Wessel Walker


Do You Have a St. Andrew's Parking Permit?

We continue to ask that all parishioners place a permit onto the lower left corner of their back window to identify themselves as having permission to park in our lot. Permits are available at no cost from the church office during office hours or after services on Sundays. Vehicles without permits WILL BE TOWED.
