Adult Fellowship

Lost and Found, 20s, 30s & 40s...
If you're looking for a group of friends to do fun things with, you're in the right place.  We are in our 20s, 30s, and 40s and we get together to hang out, serve our community, and journey through life.  You don't have to be a member of or affiliated with St. Andrew's church to join in. 

We call ourselves "Lost and Found." The name "Lost and Found" is a metaphor for humbly finding our way in life, careers, families, and the church, adults embarking on our life journeys, and also refers to the lasting friendships that we are found within the group.

Mariner Groups - Singles, Couples & Families
The Mariner Fellowship is a tradition in the Presbyterian church and serves as a support for the church and the community.  Couples, singles and families form fellowship groups, or "ships."  The Mariner groups meet monthly. Each meeting is an opportunity for fellowship, service, mission or outreach. Groups vary in their programs and choices. Some groups meet in homes, some at church, and some in local restaurants. Many groups have a Bible study or discussion component. The common denominator is Christian fellowship.

St. Andrew's has 5 Mariner fellowship groups with nearly 100 members. A traditional service performed by Mariner groups is hosting coffee fellowship after worship. Special projects taken on by Mariner groups include decorating the sanctuary for Christmas, painting Sunday School classrooms and other spaces, hosting the annual church ice-cream social, and service projects for Neighborhood House (community social services agency) and the West Women and Children's Shelter.

For St. Andrew's members who participate in a Mariner group, their "ship" means a lot to them. They have a group of supportive and caring friends with which to weather life's storms. Several ships are recruiting new people, or if you like, form a group with others you have met at St. Andrew's and create a new ship. Contact the church office LINK, if you are interested in starting or joining a Mariner fellowship.

Women's Fellowship

Women's fellowship takes various forms at St. Andrew's. We have service, social, and study groups. Retreats are planned annually and involve a day or two of relaxation, inspiration and fellowship.

The St. Andrew's Quilters meet the first Thursday of the month at 9:30 a.m. in the Conference Room. They do projects for the church and create quilts to warm and bless the families we build homes for in Mexico each year.

Women's Retreats are held each year, alternating between a "mini-retreat" format which takes up a Saturday morning, and a full retreat from a Friday afternoon to Saturday afternoon. Our retreats feature time for fellowship and opportunities to get to know each other, relaxing activities like crafts, massage, yoga and hiking, and a special speaker who will help us to learn more about how to live a faith-filled life.
