St. Andrew's & Phase 2 of Reopening
As we enter Phase 2 of the plan to reopen churches, a revised directive has been issued by the Diocese. (The entire plan is available here.) If you read through the plan carefully you will see that there are clear limits on the number of people who can gather in the church for services, as well as stringent sanitizing procedures that must be followed.
With these requirements in mind, and with the fact that the Covid-19 virus is still active, and no proven treatment or vaccine is available, St. Andrew’s will not reopen the building for public worship at this time. The Breakfast will continue as a take-out service, as it has been since March.
As much as I would love to return to worshiping with you in person, that does not seem prudent right now. As the summer progresses, we will continue to reevaluate our options and make adjustments as they are warranted. In the meantime, I hope you will join us on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am for a service from the church, followed by a Zoom Coffee Hour at 10:45 am. The eService Bulletins and Church School Faith At Home will continue to be made available each week.

All parish worship services have moved to an electronic format until further notice.
No in-person services or meetings are taking place in the church buildings at this time. Check with your particular group or committee for online gatherings.
Our parish office is closed until further notice.
Our staff will continue to work remotely to ensure that St. Andrew's is able to maintain it's ministry to the parish as best we are able. We urge you to connect with our staff via email or by leaving them a voicemail at (734) 663-0518.
The Breakfast Program at St. Andrew’s will continue with our mission of serving a free, hot breakfast every day throughout the current COVID-19 crisis. Out of caution and love for our guests and volunteers and in accordance with CDC recommendations we are making some immediate changes to breakfast service.
Effective Tuesday March 17, 2020, Breakfast will primarily be a carry out program for the duration of the crisis. We are serving cereal and milk, hard boiled eggs, granola bars, fruit, juice, and coffee; however, these items will be packaged for each guest to take with them.
Food will continue to be available from 7:30am – 8:30am daily.
Thank you for your understanding.
