About Us




Welcome to St. Andrew's!

St. Andrew’s seeks to be a welcoming, embracing community for all peoples, where we wrestle and rejoice in God’s redeeming Word, receive God’s sacraments and live in community with other sojourners. You can learn a great deal about us by simply searching through this website; however, only in person can you truly come to know whether or not you are called to be a part of this community. Come and see!


In 1517 Martin Luther helped start the storm that was the protestant reformation.  The question lingers however; so what? What does it have to do with us today?  The truth is that many of the issues that were first and foremost on the table during the time of the reformation are still present today. How do we understand the sacraments?  How are we "saved"?  Who speaks with authority?  Why are donuts so important in church?  Okay, well, not that last one. The rest of these are explored in contemporary dramas.  No monks, priests, or any old deceased people.

Fake news?

We have been hearing a fair amount about "fake news" stories posted on-line.   It seems more and more we have to wonder what we can and cannot believe.  In this week's Gospel text Joseph is asked to believe the ridiculous, namely that Mary is with child, and this baby is of God.  Joseph hears the word, and believes.  Does it remove all doubts from his mind? We don't know, but I personally don't think so.  Does it answer all his questions about God and what He is up to?  Certainly not.  I will never pretend to have all the answers.
