Adult Ministries Fall Update

St. Andrew has been working with the Bishop of the North Texas Conference, healthcare professionals and civic leaders, as well as lay leaders to determine the best approach for keeping our congregation safe during these uncertain times. And while the sanctuary has recently reopened for worship, the church will remain closed to small groups and classes at this time. However, we would like to offer outdoor spaces to small groups who wish to meet on the church campus.  To learn more about available outdoor spaces and how to reserve them for your group, please contact Connie Robertson at 214-725-8919 or crobertson@standrewumc.org (Sunday Morning Groups, Bible Groups, and other small groups), or Beckye Brown at 214-762-1296 or bbrown@standrewumc.org (Connection Groups). 

Please see below for Adult Online Studies for individual or group study, or our Groups page for information on upcoming small group opportunities.  Please check back often for additional opportunities as they develop.

Independent Study | Unshakable Hope by Max Lucado

Grab a group of friends or conduct a personal study with Max Lucado’s Unshakable Hope. Synopsis: This world has a tremble to it. There are things that seem unsteady in this life. But when we belong to God, it allows us to filter our problems through the promises of God. When we choose to be people of the promise, we choose to build our lives on the promises of God, not the circumstances of life.
