Upcoming Events At St. Andrew's we believe God gives us our unity in Christ and that we are all in this together. We respect, honor and embrace the rich gift of diversity God has given us. We value every person, are united in common mission, and seek full participation of all in the life and work of this church. As we work to reflect the kingdom of God, we strive to intentionally address the ways that race, gender, ability, sexual orientation, marital status, age, class and our prejudices limit participation, and exclude and harm people, communities and the whole body of Christ.

We know that online financial transactions were not targeted. The reason we know this is because they use a third-party processor and we do not hold information from online financial transactions in our system. We are still in the process of understanding what happened, but believe this to be a routine attack targeted towards many organizations and businesses. Here’s how you can help: Pray for your church staff -- that is working around the clock to assist, understand, and help in this investigation. These are difficult times for all of us to be disconnected and this seems like one more “challenge” on top of the many we all experience as a result of operating in conditions that are anything other than business as usual. Remain vigilant with your information. The news is filled daily with organizations and businesses much larger than ours that are regularly attacked with what appears to be the sole goal to create fear and distress for others. Know that we will NEVER ask you for financial information or passwords via email. And you should not provide this information to anyone [...]
