Becoming a Member


Members are those who understand the importance of their personal commitment to the life of the Parish. Members see their role as one of building and sustaining the community, and they fulfill that role by responsible stewardship, and by offering their assistance in the ministries of the Parish. Formal membership in the Parish is open to all Orthodox Christians. The requirements are simple: one must present oneself to the Pastor and request membership in the Parish, participate in the Sacraments of Holy Confession and Communion, and make an annual pledge of financial support.

Visitors & Friends

Not everyone is ready or able to become a member, and we understand this. But we sincerely appreciate your visit to our Church and we welcome you to pray with us as often as possible. Many persons who do not become formal members of the Parish are considered “Friends.” These people regularly join our community and are considered an important part. Please consider becoming a Friend of St. Andrew’s and, if you are able, please help in supporting the work of the Parish in whatever way you can.

Becoming a Member

If you are interested in becoming a member of our parish, please speak with Fr. John.

My family and I left the Catholic Church a few years agao. We started attending a local protestant church. We have since left but can not find a new place where we can worship. I have been reading and studying Acts. It has led me to this email. Without typing too much – I realize you understand what I am saying when I mention Acts – I would like an opportunity to speak about this.
I have surrendered my will for God’s. I seek His Grace and Love. He shall lead my life. I live to Honor and serve my Lord.

Thank You and God Bless,
