- Augsburg Confession, Article XXIV
As our confession above states, our Services are conducted as reverently as we poor sinners can possibly conduct them. We strive to show proper respect for God as He speaks His Word and provides the Body and Blood of His Son for our forgiveness and eternal salvation. Here at St. Andrew, you will never hear a “rock and roll” band, for lack of a better word, nor will you ever be led by a “praise team”. We neither seek to entertain you nor God, but to celebrate the gifts of God “with the highest reverence”. If you are familiar with the Lutheran Service Book, we make exclusive use of the Third Setting of the Divine Service, which is the historic mass.

Concerning the distribution of Christ's True Body and Blood
When you visit with us here at St Andrew we ask that you speak with the Pastor prior to receiving the holy sacament. It is our desire that you would commune with us, as in this sacrament Christ forgives us all our sins by eating and drinking His True Body and Blood, yet Christ has ordered His disciples to teach people all that He commanded (Matthew 28:19-20) and has giving warning that those who approach this sacrament unworthily will be guilty of sinning against the Body and Blood of our Lord. (1 Corinthians 11:29) We pray you would understand our concern to be loyal to our Savoir and our concern for you, our Christian brothers and sisters.
