At St. Andrew's, we are anti-perfectionism; pro-participation. That means you can get involved and the stakes are low. Church is a great place to learn leadership skills and to practice working with people. It's fun to take on a new job, help out the community, and build your repertoire of skills and abilities. Whether it's serving our faith community on Sunday mornings, or feeding people who are hungry on Tuesday nights, there's something for everyone at St. Andrew's.

Jesus said whenever we clothe those who are naked, feed those who are hungry, visit those who are imprisoned, we are serving him. Serving others is more than a spiritual practice, although it is definitely that. It also shows us the face of Christ in the most unlikely of places. Serving others deepens our connection to all of humanity, thereby increasing our faith. Read about a few options below.
