Our biggest fundraiser of the year is here.  Please come downstairs following the 10 am service to enjoy the delicious brunch and to bid on one or many of the amazing items on offer.  Dinners, movie nights, excursions, artwork, gift cards, culinary treats – all these and much more await your bidding.   Pick up your bidder number from the Silent Auction table in the undercroft.  Thank you to everyone for the wonderful donations.  Please email Kylie Schwartz kylschwartz@gmail.com for more details.

 

Coffee Hours

Dwight Shellman is the new coffee hour coordinator for St. Andrews.  He will try and fill the very large shoes of Cecilia Masson, who faithfully served in that role for the last five years. We need about 8 people to host one coffee hour after the first or second service on one Sunday each month, on a recurring basis.  This is a great way to meet your fellow parishioners with a minimal time commitment.  If you are interested in hosting one coffee hour each month, please contact him at Dwight.Shellman@gmail.com, or 303-917-3245.  Thank you!

 

Summer Choir

While the choir is on hiatus over the summer months, at the 10:00 service any and all are welcome to sing in Summer Choir.  Rehearsal is at 9:00am, the choir does not vest or process, anthems are familiar or easy, and a quartet of staff singers is employed to insure coverage of all parts.  Participate just one Sunday, or more consistently as you would like.  All are welcome!  Just show up at 9:00 on any Sunday.

Community of Caring: Pastoral Care at St. Andrew’s

The support of a faith community is essential in a time of crisis or personal challenge.    At St. Andrew’s we minister to one another in a variety of ways:

 

  • Prayer Chain: Have a prayer request for yourself or others? Email requests to prayers@standrewdenver.org. This ministry of members holds your request in prayer every day.
  • Eucharistic Visits: Eucharistic Visitors bring communion to you if you are in the hospital, homebound, or struggling with a chronic illness.  Contact Diana Solomon.
  • A Meal that Heals: Do not worry about sustenance when illnesses or surgeries arise.  A Meal that Heals provides you and your family a meal to make healing easier.  Contact meals@standrewdenver.org to request a meal.
  • EZ-Rides: Are you unable to drive to church for some reason? Contact Diana Solomon.
  • Home Visits:Offer a caring presence, attentive listening, and nonjudgmental support. Contact Mother Melissa for more information.

 

Contact our partners in ministry if you are in need or if you would like to get involved. If you need immediate pastoral attention, at the time of a death, illness, or other life crisis, please remember that you can call the church number: 303-296-1712. If Jeff answers, ask for the rector’s voice mailbox, and as soon as the message begins, press 1.  You will be connected to a cell phone, where you can leave a message and expect a prompt reply. If the voicemail is on at the church, simply press 1 as soon as the greeting begins, and then press 1 again when the rector’s greeting begins. Please help us to help you by letting us know when you need the support of your community.
