What's Coming Up....

The mission of Outreach and Servant Ministries: "Out of the center, we live our faith and celebrate it through intentional caring service while growing in Christ."

We are a servant congregation centered in Christ where everyone has the opportunity, and is encouraged, to serve both local and global communities.

We are Christ's servants and are called and set apart to:

  • Share with bold generosity
  • Encircle and enfold all
  • Focus our priorities in mission
  • Collaborate in ministry

With compassion we reach out to our community and world in ways that seek to meet the basic material and spiritual needs of God’s people. We embrace the opportunity to share the abundant blessings of our congregation in ways that touch the lives of those in need and show Christ’s love through us for his people.

“Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:18 (NIV)

Pastor Lara Forbes began her ministry at Saint Andrew’s on February 18, 2020.

Personal Ministry Statement:  As a Christian I am called to love God and my neighbor. As I live this out as a pastor, I have come to understand that no congregation exists solely for itself. Rather, it’s an integral part of its surrounding community and the relationship between church and community is living, breathing, and dynamic.

Before coming to Saint Andrew’s, Pastor Lara served at Faith Lutheran Church in Phoenix, Arizona for ten years.  She is originally from Washington State.
