 Advertising during our CTV worship broadcasts – Since April of 2018, St. Peter’s Lutheran Church has been generating revenue by advertising during its worship broadcasts.  St. Andrew’s would like to try the same strategy.  Do you own a business or do you know someone who owns a business that might be interested in advertising during our broadcasts?  We are starting to seek potential advertisers from among our own congregation.  We reach a significant audience of about 6,000 persons each Sunday.  If you would like more information please contact the church office and we will set up an information meeting with you.

Noon Hour Concerts begin September 19, from 12:15 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. This Fall's them is Songs, Stories & Sounds in the City. Check out the "Music" tab for a complete listing of performers.
