Our name says a lot about us: St. Andrew’s On-the-Sound. While not overlooking Wrightsville Sound, we are close enough to the beach that our basic attitude is pretty laid back. We can’t help but feel that we track a little sand into the church whenever we enter. Our worship is traditional, but relaxed; our focus is on living our faith as God’s family in this place. Young families with kids, retirees, and folks in between find a comfortable home here.
Bring your faith and your doubts, your experience and your questions, and, above all, your hopes. There is comfort and joy in our community as share in worship, fellowship, learning, and service.
Our namesake, St. Andrew was the first evangelist and came to Jesus trusting him as his teacher. Andrew wanted to learn, to know God, and to understand Jesus as Messiah.
We gather together in worship as we rejoice, pray, and contemplate the wonder of God. Our worship is best described as traditional and relaxed. Please do not worry about what to wear and when to stand up; after all Jesus wore sandals and we do too.
At St. Andrew’s On-the-Sound we do not tell you what to believe. You are invited into the journey at whatever place you are in your life. We are all sharing this journey together.What We Believe
This church is known as one of the most family-friendly churches around!
Your presence is a gift to St. Andrew’s and we are honored to welcome the wiggling and noises children share in worship. Please know you are welcome, come and be comfortable.
"Jesus reached for a little child, placed him among the Twelve, and embraced him. Then Jesus said, "Whoever welcomes one of these children in my name welcomes me; and whomever welcomes me isn't actually welcoming me but rather the one who sent me.”
Mark 9:36-37 (CEB)
We are located on the way to Wrightsville Beach at the corner of Airlie Road and Military Cutoff Road/Oleander Drive, next to Airlie Gardens.
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). We could as easily translate this as “where your money is…” and not miss the mark. When we give to support St. Andrew’s On-the-Sound we are helping to secure a place where our hearts feel at home. Everything we are as a loving community, our worship, our study, our service, and our play is founded on what we give together.
Come and see what God is doing in 2023
We are rediscovering what it is like for “two or three to gather” and we are rediscovering what it is to worship, study, and play together. We are grateful for those who support this church by their presence Sunday to Sunday, and we invite others to join us again. One of the sentiments I hear most often these days is, “It’s better when we’re together.”
As we move forward into 2023, we can only do so with your continued support...Click to find out more.
