Care

A Community of Support

Life can be challenging at times, but you don’t have to go through struggles alone. The pastors and care ministry team welcome opportunities to reach out and share Christ’s love with people in need of support. In addition to a caring ministry team, we offer referrals to licensed counselors, resource centers, and prayer.

If you would like to speak with a pastor, please call 651.762.9137.

Hospital Visits – Congregation members and friends are encouraged to contact our pastoral care team so we can offer spiritual support and prayer.
Home Visits – If you or someone you know would like to be connected to our prayer visitation ministry following hospitalization, please let us know.

Life Events

BAPTISMS

Baptism is a significant experience that formalizes entrance into the Christian church. We believe that in baptism we claim our identity as God’s beloved child and celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit. Baptism is open to all ages – including older children, teens, and adults who haven’t yet been baptized. All are welcome!

WEDDINGS

Congratulations! You're engaged. Marriage is one of life’s most rewarding and challenging relationships and we want every couple who gets married at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church to be set up for success. We welcome both members and non-members to hold weddings at St. Andrew’s.

FUNERALS

We welcome any family that is seeking a Christian service for their loved one–membership at St. Andrew’s is not required. Our staff is experienced and compassionate and can guide you through the basics of planning a service.

St. Andrew's Village

We are blessed to have St. Andrew’s Village, an adult community managed by Presbyterian Homes, located at the north end of our campus. We partner with staff and residents at the Village on worship, special events, congregational care and more.

Counseling & Support Groups

St. Andrew’s offers a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist as well as other mental health resources and community events.

Recovery Groups & Grief

At St. Andrew’s, we walk with people in all seasons of their lives. We host regular Cancer Connect meetings to provide support and fellowship to cancer survivors, caregivers, and those with a loved-one with cancer. We’re also honored to host AA and Al-Anon recovery groups at various times during the week, open to all members of the greater community.

You may face insurmountable challenges, but you don’t have to walk through them alone. St. Andrew’s Pastoral Care ministry exists to reach out to members, friends and families of the church and community to share Christ’s healing love with all people.
