Historical Note

In 1947, Rev. H.B. Duling, Sr. organized St. Andrew in College Park, Georgia, with 21 charter members.  At that time meetings were held at Powell and Riverdale Road, where a Sunday school was started that soon had 35 people attending.  A new building was constructed at 4619 Bostwick Drive.  It opened its doors to the community on Easter morning 1949.  Due to rapid growth, a second building was completed for Sunday school and Boy Scout meetings.  In 1952, the church built a parsonage at 2245 Shancey Lance.  Due to airport expansion in the 1960’s the church was relocated to 2495 Burdett Road.  In 1990, the congregation of St. Andrew, with the approval of the Bishop, voted to close its doors.  The Church property was then transferred to the District Trustees to be used for Church Development.
