St. Andrew Presbyterian Church has an over 150-year history ministering in Denton, Texas. A church of over 600 members, we worship on Sunday morning at 10:30am, and learn at our Sunday School hour at 9:00am. We also gather in the middle of the week for fellowship and learning at our Super Wednesday program, which begins with a meal at 5:30pm.
Serving our community is at the core of who we are. You may know us as the place where Our Daily Bread, Denton’s community soup kitchen, meets Monday-Friday. We also host a Preschool and Kindergarten program called The Children’s Place and an afterschool program called The Treehouse. We’re also active with Hearts for Homes, Habitat for Humanity, Interfaith Ministries, Hope, inc, and the Denton Community Food Center.
What We Believe
St. Andrew is a part of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), a denomination of churches that hold to a series of Reformed confessions of faith that inform our faith for today. The denomination has collected those confessions in a book called The Book of Confessions, which you can view here.
The governing board of St. Andrew is made up of a group of ordained laypeople known as elders. From time to time, the elders of the church are asked to serve on the governing board called the Session. Generally, elders serve three-year terms on the Session. The current slate of elders serving on the session are:
Ronnie Van Atta
Mary Jo North
Susan Carol Davis
Additionally, St. Andrew has ordained a number of laypersons uniquely to caring for the needs of those members of the congregation who are sick, hurting, or have other special needs. The ordained laypersons, called deacons, also serve three-year terms on a board called the diaconate. The current slate of deacons are:
