Why I come to St. Andrew's?

"I first visited St. Andrew's because I had been told that the pastor and congregation were concerned about social justice and worked to further it. Then I was impressed by the evident friendliness of both the pastor and the congregation. Reared as a Methodist, I felt that I had come home." E.L.

"Warm, caring, friendly people; community outreach; compassionate Pastor; great sermons." L.W.

"I must come to Church. I have a great difficulty eve thinking about ever missing Church." C.L.

We were lonely and scared and St. Andrew's people took us into their Church and their hearts. Besides, if we didn't come M__ wold put a curse on us!" J&B C.
