St. Andrew’s Episcopal in Bryan, Tx. I love the name St. Andrew’s for a church, but prefer it be fixed to a Presbyterian church, not Episcopalian.
Interesting bit of history that I discovered recently between the Episcopalians of England, and the Presbyterians of Scotland, is that they hated each other. The Presbyterians so hated the Church of England and the common prayer book, that they developed a philosophy of worship using what was called the regulative principle of worship that said anything not actually prescribed directly for worship is forbidden. This led them to dispense with instruments in worship, as well as hymns, and other elements of worship. To the Scots, if it looked or smelled of the Church of England, it was definitely forbidden.
I actually believe that Calvin had a better view of worship than the Scots.
