1. What precautions is St. Andrew’s taking for corporate worship? Can I/should I come to church?
Please stay home and worship online with us if you have had:
- a fever in the past 2 days;
- a cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, loss of taste or smell; or
- contact with a person infected with COVID-19 in the previous 14 days.
Please carefully consider your physical presence at corporate worship if you:
- are over the age of 65;
- have chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease or others; or
- have a compromised immune system.
If you choose to attend in-person corporate worship:
- masks, properly worn, will be required throughout the entire service for everyone over 5 years;
- no food or drink is allowed in the building;
- a six-foot distance (3 seats) should be kept at all times between your family and others;
- no physical contact is allowed outside of your immediate family;
- no gathering in the Narthex before or after the services; and
- all fellowship should take place outside the building.
- We are still partaking of Holy Communion during our services, but in a slightly different format. When you enter, you will receive a package with a sealed individual cup and wafer. You can take these at the appropriate time during the service, and discard them as you leave.
- Restrooms and changing tables are available.
- Masks and hand sanitizer are available.
2. Are services live streamed? How can I find your live services?
Both morning services (8:45 & 11 a.m.) will be broadcast live on YouTube.
Click HERE to go to the St Andrew’s YouTube channel and subscribe to our channel by hitting the subscribe button (on the right upper corner) to make sure that you can always find our videos. To subscribe, you will need to sign in to YouTube. You can sign in with your gmail account. If you don’t already have a gmail account, you will need to create a google account. We will also link the live stream services to our Facebook page.
You can also just click on the image below on Sunday morning to go directly to our YouTube channel.
We will start our live steam 10 minutes before each service so that you have plenty of time to find and start viewing before the service starts. The booklet to follow along with the service can be found in the description of the video (hit “show more” to see it) and in the comment section of the video. We will also be posting it on our Facebook page.
3. Are there any Kingdom Life (adult Sunday school) classes?
Yes. We are slowly ramping up our class offerings on Sunday mornings and during the week. Click here to find out what our current offerings are.
4. Are there any children’s classes right now?
Yes! We have resumed children’s classes for infants through fifth graders during the 2nd service only. Registration is required. Click here to register your child(ren.)
Children are not simply future members of our body, they are a part of our body NOW and are welcome to worship with us in 1st service too! Our family ministry team has created activity packets for our children each week. Each bag has coloring sheets, activity pages, a sermon guide, crayons, and stickers.
5. I’m going to stay home and worship, can I still have communion? I’m homebound and cannot get out to pick communion up for myself, can someone bring it to me?
Portable communion packs are available for pick up on Wednesday and Thursdays from 9 a.m.—5 p.m. in the Pavilion.
If you need communion delivered to you, please email Jessie Smith.
6. I know it takes a lot of people working together to make a service happen each week, how can I help?
We are looking for volunteers to be ushers and greeters each week before and during the service, as well as volunteers to help sanitize the building after each service. If you are willing to help with this, or are open to knowing more about it, please email Jessie Smith.
7. I don’t feel comfortable bringing my kids back to service, but I still want them to hear biblical teaching. Are there any online classes?
Yes, Ms. Becca and Ms. Jennifer are recording video lessons each week for our children. The lessons are emailed out each week or you can access them by clicking on the logos below:
