inclement weather policy

As we move deeper into winter, it's a good time to discuss St. Andrew's Inclement Weather Policy

The church staff generally follows the lead of the Iowa City Community School District in terms of snow- and ice-related cancellations. If the schools are cancelled for anything other than below-zero wind chills, it's a good bet that the Church Office will be closed as well. If all afterschool activities remain cancelled, St. Andrew's kid-related activities are probably cancelled as well. 

Cancellations will be posted to the St. Andrew website and Facebook page, and a push alert will be sent through the St. Andrew AppFor mid-week adult activities, please contact the leader of your group or event, Pastor Rob Martin (319-333-0126), Pastor Kyle Otterbein (319-333-0156), or St. Andrew's communication director, Jeff Charis-Carlson (319-333-0205).

On Sunday mornings, decisions about whether to cancel the worship service will be made by 6 a.m. at the latest -- with a congregational email going out as well as all the other communication options listed above. All worship services will be available via livestream on St. Andrew's YouTube channel.

Let us know if you have any questions about the above policy, and please stay safe as the cold winds blow. As the Psalmist says, ours is a God of Winter as well as of Summer (Psalm 74:17). 

St. Andrew in the National News

You can watch the videos by clicking on the images above. Some of the stories include:

St. Andrew's offers a worship service at 9:30 a.m. Sunday mornings, with every worship service livestreamed on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.

The friends and members of St. Andrew are known throughout the community for our passion for serving others in the name of Christ and for our strong commitment to children, youth, families, and music ministries.

As we each strive to live out our purpose statement ("to be the body of Christ"), we are also striving to figure out just what it means to live in Christ's love and to serve as Christ served. As a Christ-centered congregation, we welcome people at all stages of their faith journey. We would love to travel the path with you.
