Saint Andrew's - 12 Months a Year


The bible is a weird and wonderful place.

This Sunday is Pentecost, and The Church points us to either the Holy Spirit blowing open the doors in the Book of Acts, or the visions of Ezekiel in the book of.... Ezekiel. This year it’s Ezekiel we choose. 

Now, some have claimed, in weirdness and wonder, that Ezekiel’s writing is PROOF of an actual alien visitation to earth. Unfortunately, Susan is not one of them (Don’t you wish, though? That would be an interesting sermon). It’s the valley of dry bones that draws our attention, and the blessings of communion, music, and prayer, on a beautiful May long weekend.

See you Sunday.  And Wednesday too, for our mid-week contemplative service. 

Wednesdays Contemplative Service, 6:00 – 6:30  

For mid-week peace and connection.


Mark your calendars!

Next Week, May 23rd, join us for a four-week exploration of what it means to belong to a faith community. Church is changing - what does that mean for each of us?

Ok, but what are you doing?

Each week starts with sharing a meal, breaking bread as we have for generations. This is followed by a bit of teaching and deep discussion. Discussion so deep we needed three ministers to help us through it!

Alright, but I've been part of Saint Andrew's for a long time.

This isn't just for new faces (though we hope to see some!). Church is evolving, and this is a great way to explore what we're all about. Whether you're a life-long congregant or stepped foot in Saint Andrew's for the first time last month, this is for you.

How do I get involved?

Drop us a note at so we can have food ready for you when you drop by at 6:00 PM on May 23rd. The group will be meeting in the Lower Fellowship room.

Hope to see you there!


In April, the Suppers restarted a popular tradition - Birthday Sunday. The last Sunday of each month we have birthday cake, sing Happy Birthday and celebrate everyone who had a birthday that month.

We have had men cry while we sing as it is the first time anyone has ever celebrated their birthday. In April, we celebrated a very proud 82 year old guest.

Our university student volunteers are gone for the summer, so we are short of volunteers. Please join us for one Sunday. 


We had a 13% increase in guests from March 2023 to 2024. Three weeks ago, we handed out 4 sleeping bags to people who were newly homeless, or had their belongings stolen.

Our ability to meet the increasing needs depends on donations of time, food or money. We are currently looking for inexpensive rain ponchos and large bottles of shampoo or body wash. They can be dropped off at the church.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact or reach us at the church office.

Thank you!


Members of Saint Andrew's are invited to join the family of the late Dr. Walling May 26th at 2pm for a celebration of life!

The service is not going to be held at Saint Andrew's. Please RSVP for more information.

If you are interested in attending, please email to RSVP.

Our sympathies and prayers go out to Se Uk Walling, Michael, Alexandra, Phillip, Carol, and Simon.
