The church is known in the community for its willingness to welcome all, its love of music with outstanding acoustics, the quiet space offered by its columbarium, and the beauty of its worship spaces. The parish hall and conference room are available for use by community groups.

The number one dream of the parish is to grow St. Andrew’s membership and their impact on the communities they serve.  They feel that God is calling a rector who can work with all ages and who can help the parish define their evolving vision as an inclusive and multi-generational community of faith.
