Annual Events

Held the weekend after Labor Day, this event is a picnic for the entire congregation of St. Andrew’s, and their guests.  We register our children and youth for Christian Education (Sunday School), and we gather outside for a wonderful picnic, yard games, and good old-fashioned fun!

Take this flyer with you to Panera.

During the Season of Advent, a candlelight service of Lessons and Carols, featuring the St. Andrew’s choir, is held at St. Andrew’s.  A reception follows for a time of fellowship.  This lovely service provides appropriate observation of the Season of Advent which is so often rolled into the Season of Christmas.

For three days you can shop to your heart’s content and find treasures in the St. Andrew’s annual Odds and Ends Sale.  Volunteers work tirelessly sorting, organizing and pricing the hundreds of items donated for this event.  Funds raised from the sale support our commitment to Habitat for Humanity to build a home, to support our mission trips to the Dominican Republic, to provide lunch monthly for the Omaha Street School, and other mission and outreach activities.

For three evenings the end of June each year our children (ages 3-6th grade) gather to experience living into the biblical stories.  Through music, arts and crafts and story-telling they learn about life in Jesus’ time and more about the message of Good News in the Gospels.  Check the calendar for dates and registration information.

Once a month an activity is planned to bring the community of St. Andrew’s together for something “fun.”  We have game nights, book exchanges, and occasionally we patronize a watering hold for nibbles and adult beverages.  Check the calendar for this month’s offering!

Please see our calendar page for more information on scheduling.

The Seasons of Advent and Christmas are not the happiest times of the year for everyone.  The Blue Mass is a quiet and prayerful service that recognizes our losses, our struggles, our sadness and our hope during these seasons which can be painful for many people.  It is a candlelight service with music and poetry.  This service “acknowledges the things in our lives that can steal our Christmas joy helps us to remember the hope that our Savior promises to us.”

The St. Andrew’s Youth (SAY) prepares a breakfast of pancakes, sausage and lots of hot coffee to honor the law enforcement officers who help keep all of us safe in Omaha.
