Megan is our Pastor of Adult Ministries. She is thrilled to walk with the women of St. Andrew's and we are thrilled to have her! 

Hi, I’m Megan, Adult Ministries Pastor, wife, and mom.  As you know, women love to connect over many things. It is my hope and prayer that you discover a safe and welcoming place in our Women’s Ministry to help you sense that you belong. To make it easy, we have a point of connection nearly every day of the week and have recently added an evening bible study. Additionally, we have a wonderfully refreshing annual retreat, fun events in the spring and Fall and a summer book club. On behalf of all of us at St. Andrew’s ~ welcome! Hope to get connected with you real soon.   - Pastor Megan

• Learn from women, in every stage and season of life, who are walking in their God-given purposes
• Find community with a diverse group of like-minded women
• Worship with Jenn Johnson and Bethel Music
• Discover, strengthen, and activate your God-given purpose
