As members of Saint Andrew Christian Church, believing that the earth is God's and all life is sacred, it is with humility, awe, and wonder we seek ways to live in harmony with and as faithful stewards of God's creation.

"The Earth is God's and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it; for God has founded it on the seas, and established it on the rivers." Psalm 24:1-2
