To help fight the effects of poverty in Hart County, St. Andrew’s awarded grants to five local organizations. Golden K’s received $1500 to aid in the construction of ramps at the homes of disabled local residents. Hart County Humane Society received $1500 to help fund its program operated in conjunction with local veterinarians to provide low cost spaying and neutering of dogs and cats for people with financial needs. Hart County Senior Center received $900 to expand its activities program , which is open to all Hart County residents ages 60 and above. Through Hart Partners, Imagination Library received $1500 to use toward supplying books to all children in Hart County ages five and under. Hart Partners received an additional $1500 for its summer bookmobile program ,which travels around the county providing books for children to read and keep and distributes food. Additionally, St. Andrew’s is increasing its quarterly donation to Hart Interdenominational Ministry ( HIM) to bring the 2023 annual total to $1500. HIM provides short term financial assistance for those who have encountered financial troubles. For those organizations that provide services without regard to the financial needs of the recipients, it was their work among the needy that earned them the award.

The process for applying for our 2024 grants will be announced in March of 2024. Please check back if you'd like to apply then.

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. 

Individuals who need assistance are encouraged to call or contact one of these ministries that we support:

 Hart Interdenominational Ministry 

(HIM) knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Back in 2014, our Non-Profit Organization began collaborating with Hart County Churches and social agencies which focus on the cycle of poverty within our community. Helping the ones in need is our primary focus, trying to provide the tools to help people become self-sufficient is our service. 

The mission of H.I.M. is to connect people in need with churches and social agencies that will provide the appropriate help, support and education that will not only meet the present need but will enable them to address the root causes of their personal, social and economic problems.

PO Box 21 Hartwell, GA 30643


We collect regularly for the local food pantry here in Hartwell.

Prayer Shawls

A group of dedicated knitters and crochet masters meet regularly from 10am-11:30every 2nd Thursday. They create beautiful prayer shawls by either knitting or crocheting and pray as they stitch and talk and enjoy creating together.. These are blessed and then given to church members and others that are known to need some comfort due to illness, life stresses, and bereavement. Work on shawls can be done in the group or at home. Let us know if you know of someone who could benefit from receiving one of our shawls. Anyone who knows how to use a hook or set of needles can join in this activity.


The choir, under the leadership of Candy Pufall, is a group of dedicated music-lovers who used to meet weekly to support worship at St. Andrew’s. The choir sings SAB (soprano, alto, bass) anthems approximately every other week during the offertory collection. The ability to read music is not a requirement for membership, but the ability to match pitch is! The choir rehearses every Wednesday afternoon. The choir is also available to sing at funerals and special services.
