Hope to see you this Sunday!


Join us on Saturday evening, April 29th, 5:00 to 8:00 PM, for a great night of music performed by The Carrtunes. For those of you who would like to join us for a fun, appetizer party ($25 per couple/$15 per person), come at 5:00 PM! Three members of our own church are in this musical group. Bring a friend and let’s fill the house to support them and the youth group! A free-will offering will be taken to support our Youth Group’s Summer Mission Trip to San Diego—Caravan 2017.

YOUNG LIFE IS LOOKING FOR ADULTS WHO WOULD LIKE TO BE “TWEEBS!” ON MONDAY, MAY 1ST! A “tweeb” is a person who is “planted” in a public establishment enjoying themselves between 7:00-8:45 PM on the evening of May 1st. (Possible places are— Baskin Robbins, a gas station, the post office, local restaurants and many more!). The teenagers from Young Life are split up into groups with an adult driver. They are given clues and drive around downtown Sonoma trying to find as many “tweebs” as they can in the shortest time period. The “tweebs” give out tokens to the youth who find them, and the group with the most tokens wins! Questions, or to sign up, please contact Jean McQuady: [email protected] or Diana Booker-Spry: [email protected] or Check the box on your Communication Card this Sunday if interested.

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!


This New Year, remember that St. Andrew has registered with AmazonSmile!

Preacher’s Post: Knowledge is only a rumor…

April 23, 2017

Papua New Guinea Proverb: “Knowledge is only a rumor until it is in the muscle.” Easter for me was an extraordinary experience this year. The art…the music…the cardboard sign testimonies…all conspired to fill my heart to overflowing with hope and … Continue reading

From the Preacher’s Post: That Magnificent Fear

From the Preacher’s Post: God’s Pricing Policy

April 2, 2017

Human pricing for me often defies logic. You name it…art…jewelry…there are some things that just have the expensive look, but there are others that I think are cheap, even worthless, and turn out to be of great value. Then there’s … Continue reading
