Bring your donations to church and leave them in the Fellowship Hall.  Our volunteers will transport them to F.I.S.H. who will distribute to families in need.

The Gratitude Challenge

“The dominant characteristic of an authentic spiritual life is the gratitude that flows from trust – not only for all the gifts that I receive from God, but gratitude for all the suffering.  Because in that purifying experience, suffering has often been the shortest path to intimacy with God.” (Brennan Manning)

In Galatians 5:19-21 Paul cited the results of living life under our own steam in our own way. 

This Sunday I’m inviting you to join me in a forty (40) day gratitude conspiracy:
November 4—December 14. I’ve gathered some resources, and we’ll brainstorm how each of us can make this very personal. The Little Book of Gratitude is an excellent resource. Unfortunately we’ve cleaned out Amazon and the other publishers. We have a few copies available, but for those us who use digital devices, here is the link to Amazon. Digital Little Book of Gratitude


You’ll find a list of the capital campaign events, along with:

– Links to SignupGenius or Evite
– Current Newsletter: In Development
– Pledge Tracking & Updates




KNIT AND CROCHET GROUP—MONDAY’S 10:00 AM—12:00 NOON. We are gathering at a private home. The group meets the 3rd Monday of every month.  Bring your projects and join us for fun and conversation—it’s as easy as that!


THE BROWN BAGGERS—WEDNESDAY’S—10:00 AM—1:00 PM: Everyone is welcome to join us at the Sonoma Springs Community Hall (formerly the Grange), 18627 Highway 112, Sonoma, to make lunches for those in need.  We meet on the third Wednesday of every month.  If you would like to participate in this fun and rewarding venture with women and men, please come join us!



At St. Andrew, we follow a Sunday School Program based on Luke 2:52: And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. Did you know? St. Andrew is an orange church. This means we combine the love of our immediate family (in red), with the love of our church family (in yellow). We are excited to learn and grow alongside your children and help to strengthen the family of Christ! St. Andrew is calling for faithful prayer warriors on behalf of our children. We are also in need of faithful volunteers to share the love of Christ with our kids as a Sunday School Teacher. NO experience necessary; just the desire to share your spiritual gifts and the ability to make a short or long-term commitment in the season ahead. A background check and finger prints for all teachers and volunteers is required. Can you help?



JUNIOR HIGH YOUTH: 6-8TH GRADERS (usually*) meet upstairs, 9:00 to 10:00 AM every Sunday to explore God’s word and how it still applies to us today.  Light breakfast is served.

SENIOR HIGH YOUTH: 9-12TH GRADERS, meet upstairs, 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM every Sunday.

Pastor Rich’s Post: Jesus is Lord

June 3, 2018

“Jesus is Lord.” So much easier to say in Church than to live out in real life. Jesus said a lot of things I sure wish he hadn’t. I don’t like his instructions in Matthew 5:23-24. He’s talking about a … Continue reading
