Members at St. Andrew’s understand that the church is called to be a caring community, caring for those in the body and in the world around it. Therefore, we promote a sense of no walls, where all are seen as equally valuable; where needs for shelter, food, care, work, and learning are met.
The doors at St. Andrew’s are always unlocked. Cots, blankets and pillows are found in the basement, so all may have a warm place to sleep.
Each year a Community Thanksgiving meal is offered for anyone who wishes to join us. This ministry is shared with two other congregations.
In 2014, St. Andrew’s paired with the Community Church to begin offering lunches to children during the summer months. We serve a free lunch each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 12:00 to 1:00 pm to any youth and their parents who are interested in joining us. An Episcopal Foundation of the Diocese of Wyoming grant covers the cost of the food and volunteers cook, clean, and serve.
For years, St. Andrew’s has offered a Wednesday School program for elementary age children. All are welcome.
St. Andrew’s continues a relationship with a school in Tanzania. We sponsor several students and raise funds and awareness to assist with education and worship. Members from St. Andrew’s have visited there as have one student and one priest visited St. Andrew’s from Africa.
A Priest’s Discretionary Fund is used to assist people with unmet emergency needs. The funds pay for gas, food, shelter, and other assorted requests from both transients and community members.
