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 participate in the St. Andrew’s Growth Track in the St. Andrew’s Church Office during the 10:00am Grow Hour. 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 contact Troy Dunn at tdunn@saumc.com. 

stepONE – Knowing God/Our 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 – Make a Difference/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)

KiDS at St. Andrew's

There are a lot of ways kids can get involved at St. Andrew’s – and not just by attending church on Sunday mornings! We have monthly missions to inspire a giving heart, and frequently have special events!

KiDS on Sundays

  • While all children are welcome to join their parents for worship at both the 9:00am and 11:00am services, childcare is provided for nursery-aged children. KiDS Church is available for children in Kinder through 5th grade immediately following family worship.
  • During the Grow Hour, children in Kinder through 5th grade gather in Fellowship Hall to dive deeper into a Bible Study lesson led by adult leaders.
  • At the 6:00pm service, childcare is only available for nursery-aged children.

More information forthcoming.
