Welcome to St Andrew's Episcopal Church located in Hartwell, Georgia... the "best city by a dam site." Could that make us the "best Episcopal Church by a dam site?" That wouldn't be a bad thing, but what we'd rather want folks to say is that we are one of the friendliest and most welcoming churches around Lake Hartwell. We strive to be like "family", which many of us already feel we are. We'd love to have you come by and check us out sometime and see for yourself! All are welcome! Our service on Sunday is at 10 AM followed by coffee hour where we take time to catch up with one another, meet any new members or folks we haven't seen in a while or just enjoy some really good snacks.
We welcome EVERYONE to our weekly 10 am Sunday Eucharist service where we celebrate the life of our risen Lord using the service from our Book of Common Prayer and readings from the bible. We learn and often enjoy the weekly message given by our part time Interim Priest in Charge, The Rev. Dr. Patricia Miller whom we affectionately call, Mother Pat. We are very excited to have her and her many insights and talents. She will be with us until we find our own full-time rector which we pray will not take too terribly long.
We have a variety of activities throughout the year here at St. Andrew's which are open to all. Right now we are preparing for Pentecost Sunday and the long season that follows. Pentecost commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Feast of Weeks, as described in the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:1–31). In Christian tradition, this event represents the birth of the early Church which has now become the churches of today.
