Welcome to Saint Andrew's United Methodist Church
Where You're Family!
Dear Siblings in Christ,
Thank God! We are opening the church for in-person worship service on the first Sunday in June – June 6, 2021.
We are grateful to God for abiding with everyone of us through the trying time of pandemic. We lift up our prayers for those who have suffered from the pandemic in so many, horrific ways. We are thankful for those who contracted the Virus, yet recovered.
I keep all of you in my prayers to overcome the threat from this pandemic. Let us continue to practice the safety protocols. No vaccine provides 100% protection from the virus, and there are still those variants against which the efficacy of the vaccines has not been determined.
During the early part of reopening, we will need to adhere to safety protocols. Each one of us has a different sense of safety, and a different degree of resistance against the virus. Some may feel the safety protocols may be an overkill. Yet let us not dictate how safe others should feel, by one's own sense of what safety should constitute. There may be some of us who are of the weaker composition, and more susceptible to things which normally do not bother rest of us healthy folks.
If it has not yet been two weeks from the second dosage of the vaccine, I encourage to keep up your defense against the Virus. If it has been past two weeks from the last dosage, please be considerate of others, and do wear a mask and keep the safe distance, in order to protect yourself and others.
We will not mandate any rules, but ask everyone to be considerate and careful. We want to have our worship service be undistracted by anything, and we want to focus fully on the Word of God, prayer, praise, and thanksgiving on June 6th.
Therefore, we ask you the following: if you are coughing, run a fever, or do not feel well in general, please stay home. There will be no Sunday school or child care until July. Also, please visit with one another outside, not inside the sanctuary or narthex.
We feel that things will ease more and more, as the days go by. Let us not hasten to return to normal, but let us do all we can to make sure even the least of us is protected by our vigilance.
I look forward to worshiping the Lord with you.
In Christ our Redeemer,
We are here to help families in need!
Our community food closet is open on Thursdays, 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Please observe all safety guidelines when visiting the food closet. Wear a mask and practice social distancing.
Evening Service Has Returned
With the county moving into a less restrictive tier, cases in some areas decreasing and vaccinations occurring, St. Andrew's is on the path to re-open for in-person worship.
Last week, our 6:00 PM Evening Service resumed. Masks are required during worship at all times, social distancing is enforced and Hand Sanitizing stations are available.
Morning worship will also resume in the coming weeks. Stay tuned to this space for more information.
As always, all CDC guidelines will be observed when 10:30 AM worship resumes.
“Bravery does not equate always, however, with wisdom, and being wise as serpents and innocent as doves serves the believers well, as Jesus had advised in Matthew 10:16.”
