Christian will be bringing his positive spirit, his love of music, children and youth, and his experience in congregations on Long Island to us starting June 1st. He will move to Rhode Island on June 15th.
We will begin to introduce Christian to you all virtually and in appropriate socially-distanced ways! Over the summer he will work ten hours a week of pastoral care, and will also jump into his internship project—building virtual community with middle school and high school youth!
Live on Saturdays - 10:00 am
and posted on Tuesdays

Cindy will be moving to remote office administration. Although she may not be physically in the office, you can still reach her Tuesday-Friday between the hours of 8:00-12:30 at 401-213-4124. If you have something to drop off at the church, please call her before doing so!
As much as we LOVE summer camps at St. Andrew, this appears to be a year when we will need to get creative and share learning and fun activities in an online fashion instead of gathering together.
At this time of year, we are normally blessed to hear music from all of the St. Andrew groups: Sol Music, Grace Choir and Voices of Joy. This year, that is not possible yet. SO, we are moving ahead with a celebration that will include music, but will be primarily a celebration of our first opportunity to gather TOGETHER.
We'll be gathering in the parking lot and staying in our cars--though I know this will nearly kill all you huggers who are dying to get your arms around us!
If you think you would like to attend, please email Cindy in the church office to reserve a spot. We need to find out if one 9:30 service will do!
If you can't attend we will also live-stream that day.
Can you help us out? We are asking for donations of:
Tune in for Sunday worship - at 9:30 AM, we will be live streaming worship from St. Andrew on Facebook Live! We are saddened that we will not be able to physically gather together, but our physical distancing won’t stop us from worshiping together!
Our Live Stream - can be found on our Facebook page - link.
Music starts at 9:20; worship at 9:30 am

Pastor Dave Rinas tells us the economic situation in Honduras is dire due to coronavirus and the global downturn. The Lutheran Church in Honduras (ICLH), one of our two companion churches is especially hard hit. They have applied for a $12,000 grant from Lutheran Disaster Response to help 150 poor families in their eleven worshiping communities.
The plan will give money to the woman in each family who will then be responsible for administering the funds for her family. We can help by contributing directly to Lutheran Disaster Response. There are three ways to contribute:
*By phone: 800-638-3522, M-F, 8:00am- 5:00pm central time
*By mail: Make checks payable to “Lutheran Disaster Response” and mail to:
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, P.O. Box 1809, Merrifield, VA 22116-8009.
*Or On-line: Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
