The Chapel of the Seven Deacons held the first Episcopal
Church service in Grove on March 10, 1961. Our faithful congregation of 5 to 15 members
met at various locations, serving as a parochial mission of All Saints
Episcopal Church of Miami, Oklahoma. Then
in 1974, our church became a Diocesan mission and its name was changed to St.
Andrew's Episcopal Church. Our permanent
church home was dedicated and consecrated on June 6, 1981. Beautiful new additions to the facility were
dedicated on June 19, 2010.
Andrew's Church hosts Sunday and Wednesday services, as well as Adult and Youth
Christian Education. We have become a
regional center of worship, education and Christian fellowship.
outreach ministries and programs include ministering to shut-ins and those in
nursing homes, gathering food and basic necessities for the needy, and offering
support to battered and abused women.
these ministries and our involvement with national and diocesan outreach
ministries, St. Andrew's is pursuing what Jesus called us to do – seeking justice
and mercy for those in need of his love.
