Adult Education

At St. Andrew’s we are called to proclaim Jesus Christ, live in Christ, and serve. In order to do this we need to continue to grow, learn, and be strong in our understanding of the Triune God in this world. We offer a variety of classes, taught by seminary professors, pastors and lay leaders, that will challenge you, bring you into a deeper relationship with Christ, and move you into mission.

You are welcome to jump in any time, or contact the church office for more information at 651.426.3261 or
