Staying Connected

Sheltering in Place

The current shelter-in-place order from Governor Holcomb ends on Friday, May 1. We want you to know that we are keeping a watchful eye on the numbers and updates throughout this pandemic. St. Andrew is looking forward to worshiping together again one day. However, we feel it is best to wait a while longer before we attempt in-person worship. For the safety of our congregation, we feel it is important to keep the six-foot social distancing rule which we are not equipped to do during worship and Sunday school. We will keep you updated as we make changes. Until then, please join us online for Worshipful Wednesdays, Thoughtful Thursdays, and Sunday worship.

St. Andrew College Scholarships

Deadline extended to June 1
The church is currently offering two $500 scholarships for the coming school year. Any undergraduate or graduate students may apply and can be in any year of their education. The scholarship is available to those attending any institution of higher education including Ivy Tech. A recipient can only receive the scholarship for one year.

The two scholarships will be awarded based equally on (1) academic achievement, (2) involvement in St. Andrew UMC and (3) leadership in the community.  
An application is available here. The student must also provide a recent official transcript. Please send the transcript to Janet Dietz at St. Andrew United Methodist Church, 4703 N 50 W, West Lafayette, IN 47906 or at janet@andrew-umc.org .
 
The funds for these scholarships were provided by Loraine Edwards. Ms. Edwards donated funds to provide scholarships to deserving applicants. Loraine Edwards was an active, long-time member of St. Andrew (50 years at least). Loraine lived to be almost 107 and she volunteered in the office helping with the newsletters and the Sunday bulletins until a year before her death. She is still serving her church family by seeing that there are monies to support young college students from our congregation. What a gift she was and still is. 

Is Someone You Know Graduating this Year?
