DIVORCE RECOVERY WORKSHOP

We are here for you Together with the Pastors, Deacons at St. Andrew’s serve as the ordained church officers that lead the congregation’s compassion ministries, nurturing fellowship and caregiving to persons in crisis or need. Our 40+ deacons spend much of their ministry in personal interaction with persons in sadness, grief, life crisis and/or spiritual struggle. Usually, a single deacon is paired with a person at St. Andrew’s for an extended period of time, walking beside them for the months and perhaps years of relationship.

Whatever blessings the Lord may have bestowed upon Yuliya through her time with SALI and Newport Partners, I was doubly blessed by being of service, making a friend and building a foundation for future SALI classes and SALI employers.

My SALI experience was amazing!

Hosting two SALI associates helped us to grow in the Lord and extend our family roots. Opening our home to Troy and Andrew allowed us to have a better understanding of the next generation of leaders. It was enjoyable to watch these men develop and see their insatiable love for the Lord. We are blessed to have had Troy and Andrew as a part of our lives; we consider them family.

WINTER BROCHURE | 2022


saci Today’s students are tomorrow’s strength.

At SACI we’re preparing young people with skills, knowledge and values that will last a lifetime.

ST. ANDREW’S CREATIVE INSTITUTE (SACI) IS A HOLISTIC AND RELATIONAL MINISTRY WHERE FAITH AND ARTS INTERSECT AS NEIGHBORHOOD KIDS ARE GUIDED AND TAUGHT BY EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONALS IN A SAFE, COMFORTABLE, AND CREATIVE SPACE.

SACI currently offers two tracks: SACI Voice and SACI Rhythm (worship, rock, jazz and Latin music ensemble), taught by local professionals handpicked to not only be good instructors, but also a good influence on your child’s life and faith. We are currently looking for brass, string and woodwind players to expand our ensemble. Age group is middle school and high school students, but younger students will be considered. The program is tuition-based, but no deserving and dedicated student will be turned away as scholarships and financial assistance are available. As the new year progresses, SACI will also offer classes in culinary arts, audio and video production and other creative disciplines that will reflect the interests of our youth.

HOW TO SIGN UP?
