Dear friends,
Please come to worship at Saint Andrew's as we celebrate the Fifth Sunday of Easter, at 9:00 and 11:15 a.m. in person, or at 9:00 online via YouTube. We would love for you to join us!

Saint Andrew's offers worship services in-person and online, trusting in the Holy Spirit that unites us whether we are in the same place. Worship at 9:00 in the sanctuary is livestreamed via the link below. The same link connects to the recorded service for those unable to attend on Sunday morning.

Links to online worship and worship materials are available in our weekly worship and newsletter emails, on our website http://www.standrewsofsmithtown.org and on our Facebook page, St. Andrew's Lutheran Church of Smithtown.

Communion at Saint Andrew's

We celebrate the Lord's Supper from the altar.

The Pastor places an individual wafer into the communicant's hand and the worship assistant offers a pre-filled single-use communion cup of wine.

Communion is continuous; please follow the ushers' guidance on when to come forward.

After receiving communion we drop the disposable, recyclable communion cups into the bowl offered by the usher.

Please remember:
  • you may take either the bread, or the wine, or both elements
  • if you prefer a pre-packaged communion set, please let the ushers know when you come into worship
  • those not communing are invited to receive a blessing


In-Person - Would you like to host coffee hour between morning services? Sign up through the church office at 631-265-2288 or by email at info@standrewsofsmithtown.org.

Online - Zoom coffee hour meets for folks worshiping online, from 10 AM onwards. Here's the standing invitation for fellowship with other worshipers via our devices.
