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 but we are currently under a "shelter at home" status and limited by social distancing and the number of individuals that can be gathered together limited to 10! We are currently LIVE STREAMING our services via Facebook and All are welcome to watch and worship with us from your own homes! Our service on Sunday is at 10 AM and the link to it is St. Andrew's Service.
While growing in Christ and loving one another as family we are also in the midst of searching for our next Priest who will continue to shepherd us in the mission we have been called to as Christians of the Episcopal Church.
St. Andrew's is a vibrant and healthy parish with an average Sunday attendance of 45 in a beautiful recreation area of Northeast Georgia. and is within an easy commute of a university and other metropolitan areas. We seek an inspiring, collaborative leader to serve as rector (or Priest-in-Charge.) Hartwell, Georgia is a growing community of light industry, recreational activities and small town living. With a good school system and local culture makes Hartwell a great place to raise a family or enjoy life as an empty nester.
We have had a intentional interim period and the parish has established a shared leadership model, improved communication strategies and improved our community involvement which we feel very strongly about continuing. St. Andrew's seeks an Episcopal priest who is committed to helping us continue our mission and ministry by leading and guiding us into the future.
