About Us

Invitation to Worship

We worship every Sunday morning at 10:30 am. Our service incorporates a variety of music ranging from classical pipe organ pieces to contemporary praise music. At times, worship also includes liturgical dance, skits, and storytelling.

Children of all ages are welcome in worship. Nursery care is available for infants through pre-Kindergarten. Children's Church is available for those in kindergarten through fourth grade. Children who choose to participate in this program remain in the sanctuary for the beginning of the service. After the Children's Message, they are accompanied upstairs for a Bible lesson, music, and craft.

Our service is broadcast on WBUT Radio, 1050 AM, at 11:00 am. Join us as we celebrate God's steadfast love and boundless grace.

A Brief History

From the time of the first worship service in 1804, up to the present time, the congregation in Butler now known as Saint Andrews United Presbyterian Church has been at the forefront of community service and change. In 1824, they sponsored the first Sunday School in Butler which met in the courthouse. In pre-Civil War times there are records of descendants of slaves being received as members. In the 1870s women were known to lead in prayer at prayer meetings. After the 1890s a major emphasis was on sending missionaries to far corners of the world to spread the Gospel of Christ. Unlike many other denominations, the United Presbyterian Church revised its Book of Order in 1925 to allow the ordination of women as elders and ministers. The 1950s saw Saint Andrews begin the broadcast of its weekly worship service at 11:00 AM Sunday mornings. That broadcast continues today. Today our facilities are used in community service by (among others) Narcotic Anonymous, The Samaritan Counseling Service, Wednesday Community Dinners, a Sunday Lunch program, and the Chili Cook-off. Over two hundred years in Butler of serving God, our community and our congregation.
