Traditional

For many years, St. Andrew has been known for its traditional worship. From adult choirs, youth choirs, children’s choirs, handbells, ensembles and even an orchestra, we believe that we can encounter God meaningfully through traditional worship.

As we cherish our customs, we also embrace innovation. The word "tradition" is not the maintenance of rigidity but shared, habitual customs that represent our family. We share these sacred values and delight in the fruits from each new season in our Saturday night and Sunday morning services in the Sanctuary led by Taylor Davis, our Director of Music and Worship Arts.
