Celebrate the Ministry of Pastor Kyle Jackson! Sunday, July 11 - 3-5 pm Great Hall Program, refreshments and a time to gather in community as a time of joy and gratitude! No RSVP necessary, no cost. All ages invited. Leadership News: June 23, 2021 Beloved St. Andrew’s Community, The pandemic has had a profound effect on organizations of all sizes and in every industry – and the church is no different. Many pastors postponed plans to retire or to accept new calls in favor of helping guide their congregations through the challenges of the past 18 months. As we begin to emerge from the pandemic, churches everywhere are experiencing significant changes in their staffs – and the same is true here at St. Andrew’s. Today we’re sharing bittersweet news: our Pastor Kyle Jackson is in the call process and will likely be offered, and accept, a call to be the lead pastor at another congregation in the Twin Cities. Pastor Kyle has made a tremendous impact since rejoining our staff as Executive Pastor of Serve and Care five years ago. He’s one of the finest pastors in the ELCA, a fact that has been noticed by many other churches. Pastor Kyle has always wanted to lead a congregation, so while we’re incredibly sad to see him go, we’re thrilled that he’s getting this amazing opportunity to share his calling and gifts in a new way. Pastor Kyle will forever be a dear friend of St. Andrew’s, and we can’t wait to see how he helps further God’s kingdom in his new role. We’ll share more details next month, after Pastor Kyle’s appointment has been finalized, including opportunities for you to engage with him before he moves to his new church. Please watch the video at [...]

November 5, 2020 - Due to the complexities of the current COVID-19 outbreak, St. Andrew’s is canceling all of our outside music organization events through June 2021. As a church, our primary function is to safely provide worship experiences and spiritual support for our members and others in our community. The extensive CDC precautions and sanitizing protocols that are required will be fully implemented for our St. Andrew’s events, and we feel the impact of adding any other events during this time will overwhelm our system. We are proud to host so many fine musical programs at St. Andrew’s. This was a difficult decision, but we felt it was important to do this now out of respect for your organizational plans and for our own ministry needs. If you have questions, please contact Director of Music Jan Gilbertson by using our Contact Us form.
