volunteer celebration

Wednesday, May 15 • 6-7pm
Sanctuary Building

To thank you for all you do, we’re gathering volunteers of all ages who serve St. Andrew’s with their time, talents, and treasure. Dinner will be served from 6-6:45pm in the Gathering Space, and a brief program will follow in the Fellowship Hall. Contact Carrin Mahmood with questions.

SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES​

There are so many ways to get involved at St. Andrew’s — whether you are serving at worship, at other on-campus events, in the community, or with our local and global partners. We couldn’t do what we do without the many people who provide passion and talent. Be part of it! Take a look at the opportunities below and reach out to the contact person listed. We are so grateful for your support.​

Greeters

Are you and your family looking for a way to get involved? One easy way is to sign up as a family to greet on Saturday evening or Sunday morning! Families arrive 30 minutes before the service to open doors and welcome people to worship.

Valets

Assist with valet parking and ensure a seamless experience for our attendees. Alternatively, lend a hand in helping individuals navigate from the lot to the Sanctuary. Every gesture, big or small, enhances our sense of community.

Funeral Support

Funeral volunteer tasks include greeting, ushering, and hosting the check-in table, and other duties. The time commitment is usually 2 1/2 hours, sometimes less. We can be very flexible with people’s availability.
