Truly, I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these brothers and sisters, you did it to me.(Matthew 25.40)
Our Mission Committee plays an active role in putting our words and financial resources into action around the country and around the world. From the shipment of fifteen cartons of supplies to wounded U.S. soldiers recovering in Germany from the war in Iraq to well building projects in Malawi, mission and service are at the heart of what St. Andrew Church is about.
Our Board of Deacons serves the needs of our local community. Numerous opportunities for hands on service abound such as serving at Community Table (Boulder’s meal program for homeless families), the annual Church World Service CROP Walk in Boulder (the largest in Colorado), serving food to the students at United Ministries in Higher Education, and other work planned and directed by our Board of Deacons, can be learned about by reading our Sunday worship bulletin.
St. Andrew offers ongoing support to Emergency Family Assistance Association. You can offer food every Sunday, or grow your own in the community garden.

For 26 years, St. Andrew Presbyterian has participated in the CROP Walk, a national fundraiser to fight hunger around the world. In October 2012, St. Andrew walkers enjoyed a splendid day walking the streets of Boulder. We had more than 40 walkers who collected $4,848 to show their strident support with the 100s of other Boulderites. In 2011 296 Boulder County walkers raised $34,725 for CROP Walk. That has truly helped make a difference here in Boulder and around the world.
