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 App. For 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).
The Presbyterian News Service and the Presbyterian Mission Agency recently traveled to Iowa City to produce a series of stories and videos on St. Andrew's efforts to live out its identity as a Matthew 25 congregation. You can watch the videos by clicking on the images above. Some of the stories include:
- Some of the work at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church is pop-up ministry. Other efforts are built to last across generations
- Blessed to own land near its campus, the church uses a Matthew 25 focus to work strategically with like-minded partners
- Children at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in Iowa City are learning kindness by showing it to others
We're glad you stopped by our website.
Our church building is located at 140 Gathering Place Lane in Iowa City.
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.
