Outreach Ministries

Outreach Ministries at St. Andrew are performed in many ways.  These include Small Group Ministries, our annual Christmas Basket program (see below), Compassion Camp for Children in K thru 5, 4th of July Free Community Breakfast, Prayer Pillow Ministry, Special Needs Adult Program (SNAP), Cub and Boy Scouts program and more.
Kroger Community Rewards Program
Our church is now enrolled in the Kroger Community Rewards Program.  This program allows our church members to link their Kroger Rewards Card to the St. Andrew Community Rewards Number.  Once that is done, the church will earn money from Kroger for each purchase made.  There is no impact on your shopping or your individual rewards, it is just a program that Kroger promotes to "give back" to the community by rewarding them each quarter with a check to reflect the purchases made by members.  To learn more about how your purchases at Krogers can help earn extra money for our church, please click here
Christmas Basket Outreach
Though COVID restrictions again in 2021 prevented our traditional Christmas Basket Outreach Program, again we rose to the challenge and were able to work with the St. Albans Ministry Alliance (SAMA) to assist over 25 families.  While the number of families for 2021 were down from 2020 (30 Families) each family adopted by St. Andrew, was provided perishable as well as non-perishable items to help sustain them for several weeks.  If you are seeking assistance with food, please contact the St. Albans Food Pantry, located at St. Marks Episcopal Church on B Street in St. Albans.
