Andrews Baptist church

  • Where is the church located?
    St. Andrews is located at 230 Bush River Road, not far from Dutch Square Mall. Many people know the church by the distinctive roof line and steeple atop our sanctuary.
  • What worship services do you offer?
    Traditional worship is at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday in the Sanctuary. The traditional service includes well-known hymns and songs of the faith led by the sanctuary choir, organ and piano, a children’s sermon, and a message presented by Pastor Dee.
  • What Bible study groups do you offer?
    St. Andrews has Bible study groups for every age and life situation. Our Welcome Center staff will help you find the group that is right for you. Our groups meet on Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m.
  • Where do I park?
    Guest parking is provided in the lot directly across the street from Chick-fil-A. Park in one of the guest spaces and enter the building nearest you, the Administration Building. Volunteers will greet you and guide you to the Welcome Center.
  • How do I need to dress?
    Come as you are. Some of our members wear suits and dresses to church while many others dress more casually and comfortably. The choice is yours. So, take a look around our website and let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you at St. Andrews soon.
  • For Families with Children
    One of the most critical concerns for parents is finding a church family to help build great moral character and values in the lives of their children. Here at St. Andrews Baptist Church, we provide a safe environment where boys and girls can learn principles from the Bible that will help them make wise choices, and give them anchors for life. Our teaching team of caring adults is committed to making children’s experiences fun and exciting, but also meaningful and relevant to their everyday lives.
  • What do I do when I arrive?
    Check-in stations are located in the Preschool Building for Babies – 5K, and in the Children’s Building for Grades 1-6.
  • Where do I park?
    A reserved parking area for new and expectant parents is available in the parking lot behind the Preschool Building, and Guest parking is available near the Children’s Building. An elevator provides easy access to both buildings.
  • What should I bring?
    Parents of Babies through 2-Year-Olds should bring a diaper bag containing diapers, wipes, bottle or cup (if needed), a change of clothing, and any other necessary items. Please write your child’s name on all items.
  • What should my child wear?
    Children should wear clothing in which they are comfortable and able to participate in activities. They may be either casual or dressy.
  • What class will my child attend?
    Preschoolers attend classes according to their age on September 1 of the current school year. 1st-6th Graders attend classes on their school grade level.
  • What about safety and security?
    Security – A security tag system is used for dismissal of Babies through 5-K children from their classrooms. Children are dismissed only to an adult presenting the tag with the matching ID number to the child’s teacher. Vibrating pagers are given to parents of Babies so they can be paged if needed. Safety – All classes have low teacher-pupil ratios to ensure a safe and positive learning environment. All classes have a minimum of two adult teachers, and all adult volunteers have been screened, including a mandatory national background check.
  • What about health and hygiene?
    Universal health standards are followed, and teachers in Babies and One Year classrooms use gloves for diaper changing and sanitize toys after each teaching session.
  • What will my child do?
    Children will have a great time learning about God, Jesus, the Bible, Creation, Family, Self, Church, Community, and World through active involvement in hands-on, age-appropriate learning experiences during Sunday and Wednesday programs.
