Youth matters at St. Andrew's!

Church School Registration Forms

Registration forms are available for church school and also for middle & high school youth groups. Please download the number of forms you need. Hard copies of the forms also are available outside the church school office. Leave all completed forms in the folder holder outside the office. Thanks very much!

Join the Welcoming Team

We want to resume the practice of providing a personal "welcome" to everyone attending Sunday services. Vestry members have offered to serve as Welcomers, but additional help is needed. Volunteers will not be asked to serve more than once a month. The job calls for a Welcomer to be in the narthex before the start of each service, greet worshipers, and pass out name tags. An important part of this ministry is meeting newcomers and helping them feel comfortable. Additional assistance might include directing parents and children to Sunday School classes, an invitation to coffee hour, pointing out the rest rooms, or explaining elevator operation. Anyone interested in joining the Welcoming Team should contact Kristen Garnett or Colleen McHugh who are organizing this this ministry.

Make a Little Extra to Share

The St. Andrew's Loaves and Fishes ministry provides meals to parishioners in times of illness, loss of a loved one, or welcoming a newborn--to name a few. Please consider preparing a meal; they can be simple and you can choose a time that is mutually agreeable for you and the recipient. If you are not much for cooking but available to drive, we can pair you with a cooking buddy just like a good wine. It's easy and it's meaningful--please get involved! For more information, phone Brenda Naegel at 203 887-7640 or send an e-mail.
