This past December, members of St. Andrew generously donated nearly 200 shoe-boxes to local organizations that serve homeless children and their families.  These shoe boxes were delivered to the YWCA, Catholic Charities and The Living Room, all in Santa Rosa.  Special shoe boxes for teenagers were also delivered to TLC Child and Family Services.  Joanne Green took the lead in this effort, but Joanne quickly acknowledges that none of this would have been possible without our caring and generous congregation.  Well done!

We are an ORANGE church. What does that mean? It means our model takes the heart of the family (red), partners it with the light of the church (yellow), to create a powerful ORANGE team! Our goal is to provide quality instruction to your children regarding the bible and its truths while helping to empower parents to share their faith in the home!

Invite a friend!
Invite your neighbors!
Bring your grandchild!

It’s going to be AMAZING!

Sunday worship is about good works. If you want to find out what Jesus had to say about life and love, visit with us on Sunday. We teach from the Bible, learn about God and open our doors to everyone. Our family welcomes you!

Who knows what God’s Spirit might do in our midst?

 

God-friendly but church adverse?
