Who we are

We are a parish with a love for each other and a desire to share that love with others. It is our aspiration to be a Christ-centered parish that provides spiritual growth to her members and Christian service to the community. Our worship is from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer.

We hope you will join us at St. Andrew’s in our life together in the service of Jesus Christ.

“Digging Deep Wells So Others May Drink.”

Our Vision

“Digging Deep Wells so Others May Drink” is about being the Church. It is about mission and ministry inside and definitely outside the walls of St. Andrew’s. Digging Deep Wells is about helping each other live as vibrant Christians in a culture where followers of Christ are sometimes indistinguishable from other people. Digging Deep Wells is about supporting our parishioners in their daily living to transform their everyday arenas into opportunities for mission and ministry.

History of the church

Now add your church history100 years of serving Christ in the Las Cruces community! St. Andrew’s celebrated its centennial in 2014, marking a century of Christian service to our local and global community.

The Episcopal Church came to the Mesilla Valley in New Mexico in 1875 when the St. James Mission was established in Mesilla Park. In 1905 the Rev. Hunter Lewis, more informally known as “Preacher Lewis” was called to St. James Church. He was passionate about establishing missions up and down the Rio Grande Valley. One of those missions was St. Andrew’s. The cornerstone of St. Andrew’s was laid on November 30, 1913, and it was organized as a mission on April 15, 1914. The original building still stands and is known as Kendrick Chapel, named after Bishop Kendrick. The present church was built in 1962 with a “Gathering Space” added in 2001 under the then rector, Fr. Jim Galbraith. Our present Rector, the Rev. Canon Scott Ruthven, DD, was called to St. Andrew’s in August of 2003.   Edit

The power of Christian prayer Give me a steadfast heart
Give me, O Lord, a steadfast heart which no unworthy thought can drag downwards; an unconquered heart which no tribulation can wear out; an upright heart which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside. Bestow upon me also, O Lord my God, understanding to know you, diligence to seek you, wisdom to find you, and a faithfulness that may finally embrace you; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
