St Andrews Episcopal Church is a welcoming faith community striving to be inclusive of all who seek to find a closer relationship with God. We encourage participation in the ministries of worship and music, Christian formation including Sunday school, pastoral care, outreach and parish life. We provide many opportunities for Christian fellowship such as coffee hour after each of our two services, potluck dinners, teas, and special celebrations that encourage communion and build community.
Volunteering is critical to St. Andrews. Sadly, our rector of many years unexpectedly died, and after a period of grieving, we are in the process of calling a new rector. Meanwhile we continue to operate with the help of a supply priest, our vestry, vergers, lay readers and many volunteers taking on leadership roles. Fund raising through yard sales and contracted brunches and lunches assist in meeting our financial obligations.
Outreach to the community is essential to the mission of St. Andrews. These programs include: twelve-step programs meeting weekly in the parish hall; participation in WARM (a week providing shelter and two meals during cold months), the Angel Tree Project (a partnership with the Department of Aging and Human Services that provides gifts to needy families), and contributions to the food pantry. Our Thrift Shop, open several days a week to the community, provides excellent quality goods at reasonable prices. Most recently, we are partnering with the Head Start Early Childhood Program, as they utilize a classroom facility in our parish hall.
Who are we? We are a parish family striving to be the hands and feet of God, intent on enriching the community we serve.
