Join Us in Our Lenten Journey

Written by Paul Addison on .

We invite you to join us as we walk with Jesus toward the cross. As we approach Good Friday and Easter Sunday, we are discussing the Beatitudes, in which Jesus reminds us that we are blessed now, and that we will receive an even greater reward in the time to come.

You are invited to any of our three Sunday morning services or our Wednesday evening Midweek service. Please visit our Lent & Easter page, which includes the Lenten season calendar.

College Scholarship

St. Andrew College Scholarships

Deadline: May 1, 2017

The church is currently offering two $500 scholarships for the coming school year and will be continued to be offered in the coming years. A recipient can only receive the scholarship for one year.

Any under-graduate or graduate student may apply and can be in any year of their education. The scholarship is available to those attending any institution of higher education including Ivy Tech.

An application is online here

The two scholarships will be awarded based equally on (1) academic achievement, (2) involvement in St. Andrew UMC, (3) leadership in the community, and (4) financial need.

The application can be filled out online with certain documentation turned into the church office by May 1, 2017

The funds for these scholarships were provided by Loraine Edwards. Ms. Edwards donated funds to provide scholarships to deserving applicants. Loraine Edwards was an active, long-time member of St. Andrew (50 years at least). Loraine lived to be almost 107 and she volunteered in the office helping with the newsletters and the Sunday bulletins until a year before her death. She is still serving her church family by seeing that there are monies to support young college students from our congregation. What a gift she was and still is!

UMCOR - Refugees

Written by Saint Andrew on .

With all of the news and unrest in regards to refugees and migrant populations, we wanted to draw attention to an existing way we can be the hands and feet of Christ to those displaced.  United Methodists have one of the greatest relief organizations on the planet - one which is involved in this current issue.  The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) offers a global presence to reduce human suffering.  Often other agencies will funnel their aid through UMCOR as 100% of donations go towards the designated project.  This is possible because the people of the United Methodist Churches foot the bill for all overhead and then some through congregations such as ours.

 If your heart is breaking for someone or some people around the world, please pray and consider how your presence could be offered.  If you are like most of us and can only offer financial assistance from afar, feel free to give through St Andrew or go directly to UMCOR's Refugee efforts and bless others there.  If you still wish to do more, please come in and share your passion so we can come alongside and be present however God directs us.
