Many programs are offered for Children, Youth, and Adults on Sundays and during the week. T o find about what is involved in leading a class or to volunteer, please contact Justin Pot at firstname.lastname@example.org. Details on the Christian Education program can be found on the Children and Youth Ministry pages.
Concern Center: An information, support and referral service staffed by volunteers 9:00-11:00 a.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. New members of St. Andrew find this a great way to give a day a month and get to know the needs and resources of our congregation. If you have a need or concern, or would just like to talk to someone, call 303-494-8094 and ask for the Concern Center
Music Ministry: Please see the Music Ministry page for details.
Community Service: The Board of Deacons leads us in outreach and service ministries such as serving at The Community Table at 1st Christian Church, an interfaith meals program for homeless and needy families.
A unique ministry of St Andrew is the weekly Food Offering taken at each worship service and given to Emergency Family Assistance Association of Boulder. We collect both monetary gifts and non-perishable food at every worship service
We encourage our members to volunteer their time in the community in ministries of justice and compassion, such as Community Food Share, the Boulder County AIDS Project, Habitat for Humanity, United Ministries in Higher Education at the University of Colorado, the Radio Reading Service of the Rockies, and numerous other groups.
Peace and Justice Ministries: Each October on the first Sunday of the month we receive the Peacemaking Offering of the Presbyterian Church, USA, 25% of which stays in our local community. Our session (Board of Elders, the governing body of a congregation in the Presbyterian Church) designates a local recipient agency. Past recipients have included the Native American Rights Fund and the Victim Offender Reconciliation Project in Boulder. The balance of the offering goes to support the national and world-wide peacemaking projects of the Presbyterian Church.
CROP Hunger Walk: An annual event in October in which walkers walk a 10km route in the city, sponsored by supporters who pledge per mile, to dramatize and identify with people who have to walk to survive. The proceeds go to hunger projects of Church World Service, unless the donors designate to another hunger agency. The CROP Walk movement began in the early 1970s and was the first “walk” to raise funds in this unique way (many imitators have followed!). Our congregation has been a leader in this effort.
Boulder Outreach to Homeless Overflow
In 2010, St. Andrew became a site congregation for the Emergency Warming Centers sponsored by B.O.H.O. On Wednesday evenings during the cold months, our Parish Hall and Dining Hall are transformed into warm sleeping space for as many as 125 homeless guests. The session of St. Andrew has approved participation in this program for the fourth season, 2013-2014. If you’re interested in this ministry, please contact the church office to be put in touch with St. Andrew’s BOHO team.
