St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church is part of the Progressive Christianity community of believers.
We are based in the scriptures and truths found in the teachings of Jesus Christ.
We are engaged in the contemporary world through our ministries and programs.
We hope that you will browse our pages and investigate what issues are of current concern to our Congregation.
We invite you to experience our beliefs by attending either of our Sunday services. A video archive of Dr. Rigby’s sermons can be found under “Sermons.”
For more of Jim’s philosophy and views, visit his blog at www.jimrigby.org.
We speak to the young though regular Sunday school programs, organized activities and Mr. Monkey’s Treehouse.
Service for Wholeness
All – members, visitors, family, and friends – are encouraged to join us at 5:00 on the second Sunday of each month for Service for Wholeness – a contemplative candlelight worship experience that will be offered by St. Andrew’s. This hour long service will include extended times for silence and meditation, sung prayer in the style of the communities of faith in Taizé and Iona, a brief reflective homily, and communion.
“Healing was an integral part of the ministry of Jesus which the church has been called to continue as one dimension of its concern for the wholeness of people. Through services for wholeness, the church enacts in worship its ministry as a healing community.” (Book of Order, Section w-3.5401)
This type of service is not appropriate for young children. Please let us know if childcare is required.
Christmas Sermon Series - Everyday Mysticism: The message of the Christmas hymns
November 24 – “The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight” (O Little Town of Bethlehem)
Practical mysticism is living in the ambiguities of life. Personal peace is not numbness, but a balance of our fears and desires.
December 1 – “Come thou dayspring” (from “O Come Emmanuel”)
Hope is enjoying future happiness now.
December 8 – “Love’s pure light” (from “Silent Night”)
Love is the litmus test for our religion. It illumines everything.
December 15 – “God rules the world with truth and grace” (from “Joy to the World”)
Can we imagine the sacred without any idea of domination?
December 22 – “Peace on earth good will to all” (from “It Came Upon the Midnight Clear”)
Religious unity is not found by choosing the right sect, but in opening to universal compassion.
December 24 – “How silently, how silently the precious gift is given” (from O Little Town of Bethlehem)
Learning that life is the answer and religion consists of the questions that lead us to a full life.
December 29 – “The Silent Word is Pleading” (from “What Child Is This?”)
Can the words of religion awaken us to awareness instead of belief?
