About Worship

Worship is at the very heart of the church's life. All that the church is and does is rooted in worship. The community of faith, gathered in response to God's call, is formed in and through worship. Worship is the principal influence that shapes our faith and is one of the most visible ways we express faith.

In worship, the church is sustained by the presence of Christ through Word and Sacrament. In worship, the church is joined to the One who is its source of life and is empowered to serve God in the world.

The order of worship here at St. Andrews is born out of our understanding from the Reformed Tradition, which places a strong emphasis upon scripture, creative and relevant proclamation, and the sacraments (Baptism and Communion). All children are welcome in worship.

Everything in worship moves us from hearing to doing. Hence, worship is where we ascribe praise and honor to God through music, prayers, and offerings and where we acknowledge God's presence in our lives and in our world through corporate affirmations of faith, participation in the sacraments, and sharing opportunities for service in the church, our local community, and the world at large.
