Welcome to St Andrew UMC in Toms River, NJ

We invite you into the deep life of Christ's blessings and Ministry to worship, explore, serve and grow alongside Christians as we live out God's call.

About St. Andrew

We are a group of Christians believers who celebrate our Salvation and focus on experiencing our lives together. The Psalmist wrote " How wonderful it is, how pleasant, for God's people to live together in harmony." Life is meant to be shared. The Bible calls this meeting of Christians Fellowship.

While it is possible to worship in a crowd, We believe that its difficult to fellowship with one. Everyone needs to be involved in a small group- whether its a Sunday School Class, a small group that meets at the church building or in someone's home or at a local eatery.  

We strive to be Authentic - not superficial.  

We hope you can become part of a true spiritual family and join in on our journey to follow God's plan for developing loving relationships and finding encouragement from fellow Christians..

Daily Scripture

Words from Pastor Mark

 Pastor Mark Fieger

The Judas Factor

In the Passion according to St. Mark, we notice the parallel between Judas and Peter.  Superficially, Peter and Judas have much in common.  Both are apostles; both were church leaders; both betrayed Our Lord and both recognized their own guilt.  Where is the difference? Why do we have such dramatically different endings of both apostles? The difference lies in this only: Peter trusted in God's mercy - Judas did not. 

Yours in the Journey,

Mark
