Community prayer and worship are at the heart of what we do at St. Andrew's. At least once a week, we gather together to hear God's word proclaimed in scripture, song, and sermon, and to celebrate Christ's presence among us in the sacrament of Holy Communion.
Our primary way of worshipping is through the service of Holy Communion found in the Episcopal (Anglican) Book of Common Prayer. Our corporate worship is different from the way we may pray at home as individuals or families. It takes all of us to make it happen well. The best way
to be involved is by joining us for worship on Sunday morning. You are also welcome to serve as an acolyte, lay reader, usher, altar guild member or choir member. To view a recent
Sunday service bulletin in PDF format, please click here.
We follow the Revised Common Lectionary of readings from the Old and New Testament for our services. To view the lectionary online, please click here. Please note that on some special occasions such as St. Andrew's Day we
use alternate readings. The church office can confirm readings in advance if you have questions.

Childrens' Sunday School continues in parallel with the service with the children rejoining their parents at the Peace. A professionally staffed Nursery is available for children through age 3.
Recordings of recent Sunday morning services are found on this website here, and recent sermons are available in a variety of
