St Andrew's Believes in Outreach- 

Reaching Out into the Community


The St. Andrew’s Outreach Committee funds projects that affect poverty and social issues in our local community, the Diocese and nationally/internationally. Funds for Outreach are derived from earnings from the St. Andrew’s family. If you would like to help us you could donate to the church and on the memo line specify "Outreach". Members of our parish serve on this committee and prayerfully consider all needs in our community. We regularly give to the local clothes closet and food bank, as well as annually offering larger gifts in the form of grants as shown below. We do not give to individuals at this time but choose to help those in need by giving to groups whose ministry is based right here in Hart County.
