St. Andrew’s is a community of believers on the journey of faith, proudly celebrating Lutheran traditions in new and refreshing ways. We are a broad mix of people with different opinions and preferences, who have grown up in the Lutheran church or not. That’s why we offer traditional and contemporary services, with different kinds of music at various times during the week – to meet you where you are, and give you the opportunity to experience God in your own way.

The Chouinard family, including siblings, parents and children, will share their gift of music.
In 1984, the band started playing Dixieland church services for their own churches. Over more than 30 years they have regularly provided this musical ministry involving over 40 Sundays each year. Their mission is to Make a Joyful Noise Unto the Lord, and their music provides an uplifting experience for both the musicians and the congregation.
Comprised of members of an international barbershop quartet, the quartet was formed to perform in a local production of “Music Man.” Long after their school-board term “expired,” they continue to perform.
