In challenging times, we’re here with worship that’s right for you.
The coronavirus crisis is challenging churches to respond in new ways to our call to worship. At St. Andrew’s, we are now offering in-person worship along with online worship.
If you would like to attend in-person, please RSVP to Mary Sanders by email or by calling the church office at 816-523-1602.
Sunday at 8 a.m. – Rite I Eucharist – Watch here
For those who find spiritual comfort and strength in the rich Elizabethan language of centuries-old worship, our early-morning service of prayer, Scripture, a sermon, a musical solo, time-honored hymns, and Holy Communion is the perfect way to start your Sabbath.
Sunday at 10:15 a.m. – Rite II Eucharist – Watch here
Worship the Lord in the beauty of Scripture, a sermon, and prayers for ourselves and our world. Glorious hymns, organ and choral music intertwine with the spoken parts of our celebration. Before this service, we offer online Children’s Chapel via Zoom, too.
Daily at 8 a.m., 1 p.m., and 8 p.m. – 8-1-8 Prayers for the Morning, Midday, and Night
Join us on Facebook Live for our 8-1-8 Prayers each day – 8 a.m., 1 p.m., and 8 p.m. In just 10 to 15 minutes, you can stop, breathe, and find God’s refreshment to support you through your day or carry you on to bed. It’s a beautiful way to remember that God is our constant helper and strength.
Wednesday at 8 p.m. – Hymn Devotional
Join the Parish Choir on Facebook Live Wednesdays at 8 p.m. for a brief organ meditation on a beloved hymn, the hymn sung, the story behind the hymn, prayers for the evening, and a sung benediction. This is the Parish Choir’s offering to St. Andrew’s and the greater community during this time of trial. Join us for a beautiful and refreshing midweek respite.
Here at St. Andrew’s, we seek to help children discover the wonder of God’s love. Our children’s ministry serves infants through 5th graders, providing a safe and welcoming environment where children can learn Bible stories, build friendships, and grow in faith. Visit our Children’s Ministry page to read more about what we offer.
Stand, our youth ministry, serves students in 6th through 12th grades and includes acolytes, Youth Group, the Student Leadership Team, volunteer opportunities, mission trips, Confirmation, scouts, college outreach, and parent gatherings.
Why is our youth ministry called “Stand”? We seek to empower young people – no matter where they are in their faith journeys – to find their voices, question their beliefs, and make connections so they may come to know for themselves what they stand for. Visit our Youth Ministry’s page to find out more.
St. Andrew’s is blessed with clergy, staff, and parishioners who love to share their passions and walk with you on your spiritual journey. You can attend discussions on the week’s Scripture readings, learn the basics of the Episcopal way, join a book club, help create quilts for those in need, or enhance your wellness through spiritual practices like meditation, tai chi, and daily prayer. Visit our Adult Ministry page to discover all the ways you can get involved.
HJ’s Youth & Community Center
HJ’s stands as a hub of blessing for St. Andrew’s and our Southtown neighborhoods – a gathering spot off the Trolley Trail for coffee and conversation, the home of Boy Scout Troop 16 and other youth ministries, and a connecting point to build relationships between people and with God.
