Due to the COVID-19 virus, the Session of St. Andrew’s has voted
to suspend inside activities, not including worship, at our facility.
Our worship service is each Sunday at 10:00.
We have began in-person worship services along side our parking lot and Facebook Live services. Masks and social distancing are required.
As this is a fluid situation, we will continue to monitor local, state, federal, and common sense guidelines. We will update as needed.
The congregation of St. Andrew’s has proven to be great Prayer Warriors, continuing to support, love, and nurture one another. We pray for each other, our community, and the world always, but particularly and mightily during this difficult time as our sense of normalcy changes day by day.
If you have special concerns or needs, please call Pastor Linda.
In Christian love,

Session: met and approved a revision to our COVID Indoor Worship Protocol, which now includes the following: Everyone entering St. Andrew’s will wear a mask or face shield (if medically necessary). This change is effective immediately. Session would like to thank the St. Andrew’s family for being patient as we continue to walk through this once-in-a-lifetime pandemic. We will continue to err on the side of caution as every single member of our St. Andrew’s family is very dear and beloved.
Technology Upgrades: As we emerge from the restrictions caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are grateful that we have been able to continue worshiping together as a church family. With the assistance of two grants from the Presbytery of Lake Huron and the Synod of the Covenant, long needed and necessary technology upgrades and equipment have been acquired to make this possible. The upgraded technology has increased office efficiency and enabled parking lot, Facebook, St. Andrew’s website, and now indoor worship to take place safely and reach many beyond our congregation. Thank you to Brad Brown and Ozzy Dobbs for assisting and coordinating the technology required in this challenging time. We look forward to God’s plan for St. Andrew’s future ministry as we return to a new normal. - St. Andrew’s Session
Children’s Church: There will be no children’s church until further notice.
