Altar Guild - The Altar Guild at St. Andrew’s is one of many ministries that, working together, celebrate God’s love and mission for the world, primarily in the service of the Holy Eucharist. There are many different tasks that a member of the Altar Guild can volunteer for – setting and/or cleaning up the altar once a month; or doing smaller tasks, such as laundering and ironing linens, polishing chalices and other vessels from time to time, taking care of the prayer stands on either side of the altar, assisting at weddings, funerals or other services, etc. This ministry is done “behind the scenes” and is deeply rewarding.

Coffee Hour Host - Every Sunday, individuals, families, or groups host coffee hour after the services. In addition to bringing some food, hosts help set up, make coffee and clean up the room, and meet and greet visitors and friends, making everyone feel welcomed at St. Andrew’s. We are grateful for the steady, persistent, and gracious way that so many people volunteer to host coffee hour. Many people have done so repeatedly; many have shared a special birthday or anniversary by hosting coffee hour. It is such a wonderful way to meet new friends and to welcome newcomers into our life together that it is a ministry that is not only important, but very easy and enjoyable. Contact Dwight Shellman

The role of Eucharistic Visitor is defined by the national canons of the Episcopal Church, and each Eucharistic Visitor is trained and licensed by the Diocese of Colorado and serves under the direction of the clergy. This ministry involves a significant commitment of time on any given Sunday. Our Eucharistic Visitors can be visiting anywhere from 2 to 6 persons in home, hospital or care facility settings as they engage in a relational ministry of presence as well as carrying the sacrament.
