We have recently begun limited in-person worship in our sanctuary!  We may have up to 70 people in attendance at each worship service, so long as all commit to wearing a facemask, and maintaining social distancing between households.  Please join us in-person by registering for worship services through the emails sent by our Parish Secretary, Angela Olsen, or by clinking the link on our homepage or Facebook page.  We will also continue our live streaming worship available on our Facebook page on Sundays at 9:00 am and Wednesdays at 6:00 pm.  These services will also be archived on Facebook and on our Youtube channel shortly following the conclusion of the services. You can access both through the links on the right side of our home page “Follow Us on Facebook” and “Follow Us on YouTube” 
 
To help us stay connected, when you login to the services, live or archived, please sign St. Andrew’s “Friendship Pad”! (also available as a link on our Facebook page posted immediately prior to the service).  This is our virtual way of seeing who worshiped with us and it allows you to note prayer requests privately. 
There will also be a link to our donations page…Thank you for your ongoing support!

Gathering weekly to worship is one of the ways we both live out our faith and are strengthened in our faith.  Through worship, we come intentionally into THE presence of God.  We experience God when hymns or songs of praise are sung, when prayers are spoken, when the Word of God is read and proclaimed and when the sacraments are celebrated.  As Lutheran Christians, we gather weekly around both Word (read and preached) and Sacrament.  Holy Communion (the Eucharist, the Lord’s Supper) is part of every Sunday worship experience and is open to anyone who wishes to receive the true presence of their Lord Jesus in the bread and wine.  We also offer gluten free wafers and white grape juice as alternatives.
 
 
Our Worship follows the basic order of “Gather-Word-Meal-Send,” with most of the parts coming from our primary worship resource:  Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW) hymnal.  Congregational singing comes primarily from hymns and songs in the ELW, which includes a wide range, from the “golden oldies” to “global” music.
