Fellowship and Family Life are central to the ministry of our church. Listed below are many of the ways that Fellowship and Family Life are fostered at St. Andrew. If you are interested in learning more about any of these events, please contact the church office at (319) 393-4021.
The St. Andrew Book Club was formed in 2005 as a casual place to meet and discuss books. The club meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7pm. The club typically gathers in the church library, but has also met at Java Creek and CoffeeSmiths just for a change of scenery. The group averages 6-8 people. Members help select future reading material, and two months each year are usually designated as "free read and share". Church members and non-members are always welcome! Check out our current book list. Contact: Muriel Logan
The Blessed Piecemakers was founded by Pastor Karen Cluts many years ago. The group currently meets on Monday evenings at 6:30 pm to make quilts and prayer shawls. Contact: Jan Bauman or Becky Lewis
The STARS (St. Andrew Retirees) group gathers on the third Tuesday of every month
at a different restaurant in the Cedar Rapids area. Join us for a time of good food and fellowship!
Contact: Nancy Gable or Mary Rogers
The St. Andrew On-The-Town group formed in 2011. Their charter is simple - have a fun and relaxing time taking in various local entertainment options such as Concerts, Theater Performances, and (of course) Fine Dining. Contact: McCords or Wolfes
On Wednesday nights Confirmation Classes for 7th and 8th graders are held from 6:15 to 8:00 pm during the school year. Every other week, the confirmands are involved in a fellowship or servant event instead of a learning event. Also on Wednesday nights, the High School Youth meet at 6:30 pm for "SAY what?" (St. Andrew Youth, that's what!) fellowship. Come for pizza and fellowship!
On Sundays after service, there is an Adult Forum beginning at 10:45 am. Grab a cup of coffee and join us!
There are also family fellowship events scheduled throughout the year. In previous years, the Confirmands helped to organize a "Cabin Fever Reliever" in February. This is a time of games and fellowship for the entire family. During the summer months, St. Andrew "fields" a Softball team that competes with other local churches in an Independent Church League. There are also occasional church sponsored golf outings. A Craft Fair has been held in late autumn--come for some great homemade crafts and food items made by members of St. Andrew!
2x4 Fellowship Groups have met monthly for a time of fellowship (usually from November through May). These groups then decide what they will do together for each month. Whether it is gathering for dinner, a movie, a concert, a sporting event or some other agreed upon activity, 2x4's are a great way to develop lasting friendships with members of St. Andrew.
St. Andrew also hosts SafeHaven. SafeHaven is a ministry to children, youth and families who are
faced with issues of abuse and neglect. Counseling and play therapy are provided by Nan Schroeder, a Licensed
Independent Social Worker, through Medicaid (Title 19), Private insurance and private pay. For more information or
to schedule an appointment for an initial consultation, please call (319)378-0795. Please note that the church office
does NOT schedule appointments.
