It is the mission of St. Andrew Lutheran Church to “Proclaim, Serve, and Nurture.” Education equips us for this work of ministry, for proclaiming God’s grace, for serving God by serving others, and for building up the body of Christ by nurturing one another in the faith.
People of all ages have educational opportunities at St. Andrew, particularly on Sunday mornings, but also through Bible Study groups, “Table Talks,” and Forums on Tough Issues. In addition, St. Andrew serves the community with the St. Andrew Learning Center, a major ministry that delivers quality childhood education for youngsters from 6 weeks to 14 years old, Monday through Friday, year-round.
Martin Luther believed that “This life is not concerned with health but with healing. This life is not about our being but our becoming. This life is not about rest but about exercise. We are not yet what we shall be but we are growing toward it. The process is not yet finished but it is going on. This is not the end but it is the road.” Education helps us grow and to follow that road to greater spiritual fulfillment.
