Upcoming Sermon Series

JONAH: THE MYSTERY OF GOD’S MERCY

This sermon series will be based on the book, The Prodigal Prophet, by Tim Keller. We will be looking at the hidden depths of the book of Jonah. Like the Prophet, we can find ourselves running from God. We can also try to make God into who we want God to be. We, like Jonah, can just flat out ignore the call God has put on our lives. Let us learn the depths of God’s mercy. Books will be available at the Adult Discipleship Table in The Gathering Place.

SERVICE TIMES

We have three Sunday morning services. Each has a unique feel and style.

7:30 am Communion Service || During this service, we sing praises through hymns, say prayers, listen to the Word of God through bible-centered preaching and celebrate Holy Communion weekly. The music is lead by organ, with special guest instrumentalists and vocalists appearing regularly throughout the year. Please join us for this very intimate service in our chapel.

9:00 am Contemporary Service || Each week, our contemporary worship is lead by our worship team consisting of a variety of instruments, such as guitar, bass, piano, drums, singers.  The music selection ranges from current Christian songs to more traditional hymns that have been reset to a contemporary feel.  There are also elements of drama and video sprinkled through the year as well. This service take place in the main sanctuary on the SW campus.

10:45 am Traditional Service || In this service we feature listening to the Word of God through bible-centered preaching and musical presentations, as well as various liturgy and much prayer. The hymns are lead by the organ and the chancel choir, which provides anthems throughout the fall and spring. The service is also musically enhanced by the appearances of other ensembles within the music ministry including the Wittman Ringers, Children's Choir, Men's Ensemble, St. Andrew's Orchestra, St. Andrew's Clarinet Choir, as well as other special guest musicians. This service take place in the main sanctuary on the SW campus.
