New Members Class  is usually offered twice each year for those interested in membership at St. Andrew’s.  It’s a time to learn about the history, present and future of the church.  Ministries and programs of the church are introduced and explained.  We cover the basics of Christianity from a distinctly Lutheran perspective and how that is lived out in and through St. Andrew’s.  The Marks of Discipleship (prayer, worship, Bible reading, service, relationships and giving) provide the basic shape to this class.  We share some of the foundational pieces of this congregation including the Mission Statement.  It’s a time to ask questions, hear preliminary answers, meet staff and other course participants.  All people interested in joining St. Andrew’s should be part of a New Member Class. 
 
Adult Forum– Sunday mornings during the school year, we provide educational forums for adults in the north Fellowship Hall.  It may be a presentation of a congregational ministry, a Bible study, or a facilitated discussion on matters of life and faith.  Be watching for details of Upcoming Adult Forums.
 
 
Men’s Breakfast Bible Briefs  meets every Wednesday morning at 7:00 am at the Forest Lake Restaurant (bar side).  Each week, they read and then briefly discuss the Gospel reading which will be read in worship on the upcoming Sunday.  Then, it’s time for breakfast and conversation.
 
 
Women’s Conversation Group meets second and fourth Tuesday of each month (during the school year) from 9:30-11:00 am in the Fireside Room at St. Andrew’s to discuss Christian issues and participate in Bible study.
