St. Andrew’s is an inclusive, energetic and diverse community of faith and disciples. We strive to foster opportunities that explore a journey of purpose and meaning in our lives, and in the lives of others. We are a community of shared mission and discipleship. We strive to follow Jesus while reaching out to help and be of service.
For many, St. Andrew’s is where we choose to observe and commemorate some of life’s most sacred milestones. It is a trusted place— set apart for respite, spiritual restoration and renewal. It is a place where we are encouraged to explore God’s grace in our daily lives, and to be conduits of that grace for others. Giving to others as God has given to us is a vital and joyful part of our spiritual journey. It is a powerful way to connect with and give life to the things that are important and lasting.
The goal of our stewardship ministry is to help God’s people grow in their relationship with Jesus through the use of the time, talents and finances God has entrusted to them. Giving generously can transform your life as well as touch the lives of those around you. Generosity opens the giver to a closer relationship with God.
