Our Ministries
Acolytes / Worship Leaders

Acolytes are people who assist with our worship services by: carrying the cross or torches, assisting with the table, managing the incense and more! If you'd be interested in helping out in the services, please let us know! Older children through adults welcome.

Altar Guild

The altar guild cares for the altar, sanctuary, and makes preparations for Holy Communion. This includes tending to altar linens, the altar vessels, and the candles.

Breakfast Ministry

St. Andrew's serves breakfast most Sundays from 8:45 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy food and fellowship. We have eight teams who rotate cooking duty. If you're interested in joining a team, contact Annette Mullins!

Children's Chapel

Have a great time worshipping with some of our younger parishioners as they have their own service before joining us in the main Sunday service at the passing of the peace. Guaranteed to be a lively time! (Interview, training, and background check required)

Choir

St. Andrew's has a reputation for outstanding music. Join our choir and be part of "making a joyful noise!"

Dinner for 8

Dinner for 8 groups meet several times a year for food, fellowship and fun!

Prayer Shawl Ministry (St. Brigid's Guild)

A small group of St. Andrews’ parishioners knit and crochet prayer shawls for the parish and outreach to friends in the community. We invite men and women to join us every third Thursday from 6:30 –8:00 pm in St. Gregory’s room.If you can’t attend the meeting, perhaps you would like to knit/crochet at home.

Ushers and Greeters

Greeters make sure that everyone feels welcome when they come into the church. Ushers help people find places to sit and make sure they have what they need for worship.

Adult Formation
