From small 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.

Though COVID-19 has changed our approach, our mission is the same: to Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose, and Make a Difference. By getting involved, we hope you will able to join us in living our mission! 

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.
