We are all seekers. Whether you are at the beginning of your journey or somewhere in the middle — or if you are returning to your journey after time away— all are welcome at St. Andrew’s.

St. Andrew’s has two different buildings in Glenwood, MD on Rt. 97: the historic Union Chapel and the newer Parish House. Each building is home to worship services and has its own parking area. Worshipers are from Glenwood, Lisbon, Glenelg, West Friendship, Cooksville, Woodbine, New Market, Olney, Ellicott City and Catonsville.  You can get directions here.

Take a few moments to explore the website to learn more about St. Andrew’s. When you come to worship, please let the person handing out bulletins (the usher or greeter) know that you are visiting. We are glad to welcome new people to worship!

WHAT TO EXPECT

St. Andrew’s worship is spiritual, uplifting and welcoming, whether you choose to worship in Union Chapel or the Parish House. For those raised in the Episcopal church, you may be interested to know that we utilize the 1979 Book of Common Prayer Rite II services. For those coming from other Christian denominations, it may be helpful to know that services feature weekly readings, proclamation of the Gospel, a sermon and Holy Eucharist (Holy Communion). The service bulletin has all the responses and information needed to participate in a worship service. All who desire to participate in Christ’s offering of bread and wine are welcome to receive Holy Eucharist, including children. If you choose not to receive at Holy Eucharist, you may come forward with your arms crossed over your chest to indicate to the Eucharistic ministers that you prefer a verbal blessing.
