Serve at St. Andrew

Super Wednesday Volunteers
September 6-November 29
Fellowship Hall, 4:30pm

Many willing hands are needed on Wednesday evenings in Fellowship Hall for Super Wednesdays to be successful. Volunteers are needed each week to help serve the meal and staff the money table. Sign-up sheets will be posted in Fellowship Hall, so please volunteer an evening or two this fall. Jane Jaegerman will give you a reminder call as your turn to help approaches. Thank You!

 

The Diaconate has several programs to provide spiritual, physical, and emotional support to St. Andrew members at birth, illness, hospitalization, and death. We also serve members who are homebound. These programs offer an opportunity for anyone to get involved in a rewarding service.

 

Volunteers for After Worship Refreshments Needed

Do you enjoy conversing with friends over a cup of coffee with a treat in the Narthex after worship on Sundays? If so, please consider signing up to help one Sunday by hosting or providing refreshments. Contact Sara Armstrong at 940.453.7046 or sarm1407@gmail.com for available time slots. You may view the sign-up calendar online once you provide your email to Sara, or a printed copy is available in the Sacristy on the cabinets.

 

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are laypeople trained to provide one-to-one, confidential Christian care to people experiencing a difficulty in life such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, relocation, or separation due to military deployment or empty nest. Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life, but have a common calling to bring Christ’s love and care to others. If you or a loved one could benefit from the care of a Stephen Minister, please contact one of our pastors. Questions? Contact Karen Dower, dowerks@hotmail.com.

 

Prayer Ministry Teams

The prayer teams are made up of members of the Diaconate and members of the congregation. We pray for those who are suffering, grieving, and/or stressed out from life’s challenges. Contact Roger Lewis, rlewis44@verizon.net, or Barbara Meriwether, 940-367-2586.

 

Blood Drive

We sponsor a Red Cross Blood Drive every other month on the third Saturday from 9am to 2pm. Sign up online at www.redcrossblood.org. You can also walk in and sign up.

 

Meal Train

A meal train will be set upon request, typically every other day for 2-3 weeks. Signing up to take a meal is purely voluntary.
