St Andrew United Methodist Church

"Building upon God's Grace through Love, Obedience and Compassion"

St. Andrew will be holding a Vacation Bible School program to go from Monday, Aug 10th- Friday, Aug 14th. Families can pickup supplies or have them dropped off at their home. Youtube videos will also be uploaded for the children to watch, and we will hold a Zoom meeting each night at 7pm for them to share their work with one another. Our VBS Mission Project will be for In Ian's Boots- an organization in Pottstown that collects new and gently used footwear.

Dear Members & Friends,

St. Andrew will be holding outdoor services on Sunday, June 28th, Sunday, July 5th and Sunday, July 12th at 10am. The services will be held on the front porch with the congregation sitting distanced in the front parking lot and field. Please park in the back lot and bring a mask and something to sit on. We will also be broadcasting the services via Zoom, phone, and Facebook. For the service on July 5th, please bring your own communion elements from home. Trustees will be meeting on Tuesday, July 7th to decide on our next steps for re-opening and worshipping together.

All small groups under 25 persons may return to meet ONLY in the downstairs in the fellowship hall, and may use kitchen and downstairs bathrooms. Signs and hand sanitizers will be in place as you enter. (If you use a bathroom, you will have access to disinfectant wipes upon your exit, so you may clean before the next person uses the bathroom.)

Groups MUST pre-register their date and time for wanting to meet in our building by calling Jeanine at the church office. She will inform you if that date and time is available and no other group is using the downstairs.

We encourage you to meet outside whenever possible, either under the pavilion or porch in front of building, or in grass areas bringing your lawn chairs.

When you are in the building or in groups outside other than your own family members, you MUST wear a mask and practice social distancing of at least 6 feet.

We ask all persons to refrain from entering Construction Sites and areas that are clearly marked off as Building Renovation moves to concluding stages.

During our time away from our building we encourage you to continue to support our ministries and missions with your generous offerings and tithes. You may give either online by clicking here, or via check mailed to the church.
