Welcome!

Dear Friends of St. Andrew's,

From the founding of our Parish in 1958, we have grown and developed with Sierra Vista - as partners in building up this great community we call home.

Over the decades, we sought to be active participants in every aspect of community life. We believe that serving the common good and making this city a place where people come first, where the least and most easily-overlooked are served and cared for, and where the quality of life is enhanced for all our fellow citizens, is an essential witness to our faith.

We hope our parish church is a place where all experience the Presence of God and the welcome of God's People. We pray that its beauty will speak a wordless invitation to those who are seeking, those who are wearied by life's burdens and those who are drawn to lift their hearts in prayer.

We thank God for giving us this opportunity to extend His blessings and to share our church and campus facilities with the Sierra Vista community.
The pulse of St. Andrew's is reflected through our ministries and individual parishoner efforts.  I hope to highlight these achievements and bring focus to upcoming events in the article following this message.

Yours because His,

Fr. Greg Adolf
Pastor

Bienvenido

Queridos amigos de San Andrés,

Desde la Fundación de nuestra parroquia en 1958, hemos crecido y desarrollado con Sierra Vista - como socios en la construcción de esta gran comunidad que llamamos hogar.

Durante las décadas, intentamos ser participantes activos en todos los aspectos de la vida comunitaria. Creemos que servir al bien común y haciendo de esta ciudad un lugar donde la gente viene primera, donde el menos y la mayoría pasa por alto fácilmente son servidos y atendidos, y donde la calidad de vida es mayor para todos nuestros conciudadanos, es un testimonio esencial de nuestra fe.

Esperamos que nuestra parroquia es un lugar donde toda experiencia de la presencia de Dios y la acogida del pueblo de Dios. Oramos para que su belleza hablará una invitación sin palabras a aquellos que buscan, los que están cansado por las cargas de la vida y quienes son atraídos a elevar sus corazones en oración.

Damos gracias a Dios por darnos esta oportunidad para extender sus bendiciones y a compartir nuestras instalaciones iglesia y escuela con la comunidad de Sierra Vista.

El pulso de San Andrés se refleja a través de nuestros ministerios y esfuerzos individuales parishoner.  Espero destacar estos logros y enfoque a próximos eventos en el artículo siguiente este mensaje.

Tuyo porque su,

El padre Greg Adolf
Pastor

Did You Know...?
 

...that next Sunday afternoon, we will be hosting the 10th Annual Community Hymn  Festival here at St. Andrew’s at 2:00 PM?

 

This is a not-to-be missed event, if you like to sing, or, if you just like to hear great Christian music, sung by wonderful choirs and accompanied by brilliant musicians!


Singers from a number of local churches form a ‘master choir’ and we are all invited to sing along with them, to marvelous accompaniment!


This is the best of the best of Christian musicians, under the leadership of Maestro Roger Bayes, the Music Minister at First Southern Baptist and Conductor-Emeritus of the Sierra Vista Symphony Orchestra, making a “joyful noise to the Lord”!


Master Organist, Lars Andersen, who ‘inaugurated’ our then-new pipe organ, will again accompany the singers!

 

This year’s music selections honors the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, and celebrating that event here at St. Andrew’s is a kind of testimony of how far reaching the Ecumenical Dialog really is among committed believers – committed to the Truth of the Gospel and the necessary unity of the Church!


There will be a free-will offering – this year for one of our favorite charities – Good Neighbor Alliance – our Homeless Shelter for Families and individuals!


The program lasts about an hour -- come a little early and get a good seat – since this is a Community-wide event, coming early is the only way that you will get your “accustomed pew” in church!


Why not invite friends and family members to join you? Again, this is a wonderful, powerful demonstration of the unity which we share with all believers in Christ.  

If someone you know has been away from the Church for a while, this would be a great way to invite them to “come Home” in a very low-keyed, pleasant way.


When you experience the church filled with praise and the voices of Christians from across the denominational spectrum – it is deeply moving and utterly unforgettable!


We look forward to seeing YOU next Sunday afternoon at 2:00PM – right here at St. Andrew’s -- for the 10th Annual Community Hymn Festival!
