Christmas at St. Andrew’s is a time that brings light and joy to a darkened world. It takes hundreds of people to bring the season alive and prepare us to awaken to the promise of Jesus — from decorating the Sanctuary to serving as an usher at worship to being part of the Christmas Around the World crew.
Be part of it all by giving just a bit of your time and talent during this busy season to volunteer. Friends and family in town? They are welcome too!

Enrich your life by giving yourself to neighbors in need. Volunteer at the Community Resource Center this year by being an employment mentor, entering data, driving our transportation van, sorting and organizing donations, or more. Help with the free Thursday night community meal by preparing and serving food, running the dish room, doing crafts with kids, or being a welcoming presence at the check-in table. Volunteer one time or commit to an ongoing schedule. Be part of a community where lives are being transformed. We’d love to meet you.
Imagine it’s your Grandma! That’s how we treat each person who drives up to use our Valet Ministry outside the Sanctuary on Sunday mornings. Please consider being part of a team of volunteers who park cars once a month on a rotating schedule.
Worship Team Volunteers
Create a warm, welcoming, and orderly environment so that the focus of our worship services can remain on worship. Individuals and families are welcome. We need volunteers to serve as greeters, ushers, communion servers, video operators, valet parkers, hospitality hosts (coffee & cookies), and more during Traditional and Contemporary services, as well as holiday services and special events such as concerts.
First Response Team
We need CPR-trained volunteers to provide first responder coverage at our worship services, concerts and programs. Responders have a reserved seat in the Sanctuary and the Great Hall.
We are always in need of volunteers to help with special events during the year such as the Block Party (September), Star of Wonder (December) and other congregation-wide and community events. Check our weekly Bulletin Inserts for more information.
