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.  The next two-session New Member Class is April 19th (6:30 PM-8:00 PM)  and April 26th (6:00 PM -8:00 pm) 
Adult Forum– Sunday mornings during the school year, we provide educational forums for adults from 9:30 – 10:15 am 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.

Monday Night Bible Study led by members of the study meets the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month at 6:00 pm at St. Andrew’s in the Fireside Room.   Everyone welcome!  The current study is “Decisions – Seeking God’s Guidance” bDonald Baker.  Do you sometimes wish that the Bible could make your decisions for you?  Donald Baker is familiar with this desire.  He writes, “God has given me free will, and while I appreciate his confidence in my ability to choose, there are times when I wish that he would make the decisions for me.”  The Bible won’t give you a direct answer to each choice you face, but the Bible will teach you how to make decisions wisely, confidently and in harmony with God’s will.
