Where to Park

St. Andrew's has two parking areas (north and south lots). The north lot is handicapped accessible. Park in the north lot (to the right of the church) for the parish office and in either lot for meetings and church services.

Nursery

St. Andrew’s invites children of all ages to participate in our Sunday morning worship. However, we also have an adult-supervised nursery for infants and toddlers on the second floor of the parish hall that is open during our 10:30 am service. There is also a sound system in the nursery so parents of young children can continue to hear the worship service if you need to leave the service for any reason.

Invitation to Communion

Everyone is invited to share in communion. This is the Table of Jesus, not the Table of the Episcopal Church or St. Andrew's Dayton. We invite all who seek to walk in faith to join us at the Altar, sharing in Christ's sustaining Life. You may participate by receiving the Bread and the Wine or by receiving only the Bread. Or you may come to the Altar for a blessing while others come for Communion. Instead of receiving the Bread and the Wine, you may place your hands over your heart. The Priest will pray for God's blessing upon you."

New Membership Information

We welcome any person who expresses a desire to participate in our life and ministry here at St. Andrew’s. We know that finding a faith community can be difficult, but when you find the right one, you know that you are home. If you decide that you would like to make a formal commitment and join our faith community, there are a couple of steps you can take.

Baptism: Membership is open to all baptized people whether baptized in the Epsicopal Church or another Christian denomination. You will need to register your baptism with St. Andrew’s. If you have a copy of your baptismal certificate, or if you need to obtain one from the church where you were baptized, we will happily help you register your baptism here at St. Andrew’s. If you are a member of another Episcopal Church, then the registration of your baptism comes in the form of a Letter of Transfer. A Letter of Transfer from your former parish will register your baptism at St. Andrew’s.

Regular Attendance: Membership is all about involvement. The most important involvement in any church is worship. In worship, we pray, we sing, we hear the words of Holy Scripture, and we experience the presence of Christ in the Holy Communion. All of these acts are offered in thanksgiving and praise to God. Making worship a regular part of life strengthens and renews us so that we can return to our Monday through Saturday with a deeper faith.

Invest Time: Whether it's a worship service or a volunteer opportunity, Membership takes time. We know that time is the great commodity of our world, but the only way to truly be a part of a faith community is to spend time within it. Time is God's gift to us for life and love. How better to show our thankfulness for life and love than by giving back some of our time to God?

Invest Talent: Every Christian has unique talents that God has given them and which God calls us to use. The places we find to use those talents are known as our Vocations - the place God calls us. Frederick Buechner once said “the place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” Our unique God-given talents have places where they can meet the world's greatest needs. Membership at St. Andrew’s means a commitment to find and invest your God-given talents.

Pledge Annually: Annual Pledges help us budget for the year, and offer each of us a chance to renew our commitment to the work of St. Andrew’s in the City of Dayton. If you took a survey of Episcopalians, you'll find that most of our members came from other denominations. There are not very many "cradle Episcopalians." Most were attracted by the beauty of our liturgy and the thoughtfulness of our life in faith. We hope you will join our community in discovering how we can be instruments of God’s love through worship and service to the world.
