Here at Old St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church…

P1360705. . . you will find a 207 year old building filled with 21st century people who are passionate about bringing Jesus’ message of compassion, forgiveness, inclusion, justice and love to the world. We are an open and affirming congregation and so all people are always welcome at OSA.

On Sundays, you will share in the Holy Eucharist, hear a really good sermon, and participate in making uncommonly good music.

You will notice our recent enhancements, including updated handicap accessibility. You are invited to discover an Episcopal Church family of compassionate spiritualists where there is attentive pastoral care, adult education seminars that explore faith and questions of faith in an ever changing world, a loving and caring church school, outreach initiatives at home and around the world, and genuine fellowship.

Come join like-minded people who care about children and seniors, who welcome provocative ideas, and who often prayerfully walk a labyrinth as a way of finding the peace of God that passes all understanding.

A Favorite Old St. Andrew’s Blessing!

Life is short
and we do not have too much time
to gladden the hearts of those who travel
the Way with us.
So, be swift to love,
and make haste to be kind.

Creator God, grant us your blessing,
through him in whom we live and move and have our being,
and fill us with your peace through the Holy Spirit. 


(This prayer was given to The Rev’d Erl G. Purnell by Marcus Borg and is adapted from a poem by the French priest Henri Amiel, in 1868. Mr. Purnell wrote the blessing.)
