Approved Annual Budget for 2024
In December 2017, the St. Andrew community opened the doors of a brand new building. At the time, the congregation could only dream of how this beautiful facility, rising from a gentle meadow, would become a hub of missional activity for church members, local non-profits, and organizations working for the common good across town and across the globe.
In the six years since, St. Andrew has surpassed those early dreams and become a spiritual home for hundreds of people — a place where questions are welcomed and encouraged, where the inclusive love of Jesus is embodied and embraced, and where the worship of our Triune God is enacted and exalted.
As a part of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the friends and members of the St. Andrew community experience the presence of God through their interactions with other people — those from within our congregation as well as those from outside our church walls. We believe that our regular service to (and with) those in need allows us to learn from one another and keeps us from becoming self-focused and self-centered.
St. Andrew is also a church that worships the Triune God. As such, we believe that the Creator, Sustainer, and Holy Spirit are collectively to be worshiped “in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23) — not for any material gain, but with sincerity, according to God’s Word. Everything that is said, sung, prayed, played, and displayed in our worship services is offered for the glory of God alone — even as it transforms our lives into the hands and heart of Jesus, the Christ.
After you read through our Narrative Budget full of our visions for the next calendar year, we encourage you to let us know how much you will pledge to give in 2024. We have scheduled a Stewardship Sunday for November 19.
All of our ministries flow forth from our worship as we embody our love of God and love of neighbor in an undivided way. Your financial support makes our work and our witness possible, and your gifts help make you an important part of St. Andrew’s ongoing story!
