Sunday | April 14 | 5pm-7pm

We will meet in the Meeting Center (old fellowship hall across from the sanctuary) for a taco bar and sundae bar, and then move into our new space upstairs for some gaming, playing, learning, and planning for the summer! No one has graduated yet this year – so even if you’re aging out, come hang with us for a couple of months or even through the summer! Bring your friends (lots of friends!) and get ready for some fun!


Sunday | April 28 | 3pm-5pm

Everyone’s Invited!

It’s not just for children anymore! OK, it IS a lot of fun for children… but we are planning great things for “older kids” as well! From free hotdogs to corn hole, it’s all planned!

4-Square AND 9-Square, bounce houses, photo ops with baby goats, karaoke, checkers, fresh-popped popcorn, plinko, a surprise guest – we have something for everyone! Rain or shine, we are partnering with Garner UMC to make this the best Spring Fling ever! Check out our posts on Facebook and Nextdoor, and be sure to like and share with all your contacts.

Bring friends, grab a neighbor or two, bring a lawn chair if you want, and settle in for a great afternoon!

Thursdays | 12:00pm

Bring your Bible, your own lunch, and a drink! Pastor Beth will lead us in exploration and conversation on topics that are thought-provoking, applicable to our lives, and based on scripture. We will begin with a brief introduction to the day’s topic, followed by a time of digging into scripture and discussion-based learning.

We are studying Adam Hamilton’s “24 Hours That Changed the World” and will help us to inform us as we move through the Season of Lent.

Join us on Thursdays!


Wednesdays | 9:30am

Our Sacred Circle is a unique program at St. Andrews, there is a weekly email with a scripture relating to God and creation, an environmental reading, & meditation.

Each week, we meet in the Creation Care Classroom or on the Meditation Path (weather permitting). This is a time of observation, silence, listening, wonder and reflection. We use walking slowly to listen to nature and for God: Grace (we believe that God pardons us and grants eternal salvation through Christ) and Circle (used for thousands of years by people to share, learn, hear, and see each other). Contact Randy Senzig at senzigrandy@gmail.com or 919-270-9682 for more information.


Sundays | 9:45am

This study, endorsed by the Curriculum Resources Committee of The UMC, offers a year-round, weekly Bible study plan. Each lesson offers background, scripture, and doctrinally sound and relevant biblical interpretation and application. Annual classes provide coverage of the Bible, special lessons during the church seasons of Advent/Christmas and Lent/Easter, and suggestions for developing spiritual practices such as prayer, worship, community, and service.


Sundays | 9:45am

Starting April 14 we will begin Five Means of Grace: Experience God’s Love the Wesleyan Way by Elaine A. Heath. This study is 6 weeks long.  The first week is an overview and then over the next 5 weeks we will dive into the 5 Means of Grace, one per week.  We would love to have you join our class!

Beginning May 26 – Half Truths: God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things the Bible Doesn’t Say

Sundays | 9:45am

We study the historical and theological background of the Lectionary readings and learn how God’s Word in the Old and New Testaments still speaks to us today. We seek ways to turn words into action as we strive to expand God’s Kingdom. We enjoy a relaxed and open discussion where each person’s opinion is welcomed and respected. We support, encourage, and care for one another​ through the joys and the challenges of life. We open our class on “Zoom” for those unable to attend in person.
