All Are Welcome!

Right now we are adhering to the wishes of the diocese which means that we are not doing any in person ministries right now. We are however, still raising funds or supplies for those groups in our community that we serve. As we all know the pandemic has definitely changed the way we all do things right now, but it doesn't mean that we won't get back to our old ways when the health of all is much more secure. Please check back frequently to see what things may be up and running as we would like them to!

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 Diocesan concerns both national and international. 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 support the local clothes closet, local shelter for Domestic Violence victims, humane society and the local food bank, as well as annually offering larger gifts in the form of grants to local ministries who work for feeding and serving the local community. 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. We will have new grants available to apply for in early spring of 2021.

October 4th we had a "Drive though" pet blessing and had donations for the local Hart County Humane Society as folks who brought their pet for a blessing donated much needed food for our animals. We even had some come through just to donate food, supplies and funds to the society to help us help them. We have a no kill shelter which has many (mostly cats and kittens) animals right now! Give them a call to volunteer or to find out when you can drop by to see which one you may want to adopt! Thank you to all who helped us out! 

We were able to donate a nice collection of dog and cat food as well as cat litter and kitten food. It was so gracious of those who came out and supported our local humane society! Thank you to all who donated, brought their pet for a blessing and delivered the goods to our shelter on Reed Creek Hwy!
