From smalls groups to youth groups, and Vacation Bible School to a plethora of volunteer opportunities, there are ways for all members of your family to get involved in the St. Andrew’s Community. Please read on for more details about the offerings we provide, and don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.

How to Join St. Andrew's

Families and individuals interested in joining St. Andrew’s are invited to join on the first Sunday of each month, and then participate in the St. Andrew’s Growth Track. The Growth Track guides new members to discover their identities as a Child of God and live the life God created for them. The Growth Track is made up of four steps that equip new members to 1) connect to the church 2) understand their role as a Child of God, 3) discover the strengths of their purposeful design, and 4) use their God-given gifts to make a difference in the lives of others.

There is no required order to take the classes, except that stepFOUR needs to come after you have attended stepONE through stepTHREE. If you plan to join St. Andrew’s on the first Sunday, please let us know at https://standrews.breezechms.com/form/2fe0e1

stepONE – Story.

Hear the story of St. Andrew’s, why we were founded and where we are going, and share a little of your own. Step One takes place the first Sunday of every month.

stepTWO – Instill Identity/Find Freedom

Discover your place as a Son or Daughter of God and find freedom from those things that seek to tell you otherwise. Step Two takes place the second Sunday of every month.

stepTHREE – Discover Purpose

Dive into the details of your personality, discover your gifts, and see how your design reveals your purpose in life and your best fit in ministry. Step Three takes place the third Sunday of every month.

stepFOUR – Join St. Andrew’s Army

Connect to the opportunities available at St. Andrew’s to live out your purpose and serve others by using your God-given gifts. Step Four takes place the fourth Sunday of every month.

(an invitation to join St. Andrew’s will be presented during both worship services on the first Sunday of the month)
