A Generous Community
St. Andrew’s is a generous community. You and many of your fellow parishioners offer a multitude of gifts. This community offers itself in prayer, companionship, music making, gardening, and a host of other activities. Some offer professional expertise, and others willing hearts and hands. And together, through our financial gifts small and great, we keep our church engaged in ministry from day to day and year to year.
This is the season when we ask you to consider your financial support of St. Andrew’s. Without you and over a hundred others, we could not maintain our physical plant, support our partners in mission and outreach, run our programs, or pay our staff. We ask for your commitment at this time of year so that our treasurer and vestry can prepare a faithful and responsible budget for the year to come.
Can we depend on your support in 2023, as we have in the past? Despite all the global uncertainty and personal challenges of this time, would you be able to consider increasing your pledge or making a pledge, so that our mission and ministries will continue to thrive?
We hope to collect all our pledges by Thanksgiving Day, when we celebrate the gifts of our generous God.
A generous community thrives. Please join us in continuing to support our vibrant community, so that together we can continue to share comfort, hope, and material aid within and beyond our church home.

There are beautiful words in church services, and often there is wisdom in the sermons. But what I liked most was the anonymity…
When Lynne and I contemplated our move to Denver in 2010, I asked a good friend where we might find the best church music in town. He without hesitation exclaimed, “Why that would be St. Andrew’s, of course.” So on our next visit to Denver, we went to see if he was correct. As we had our first look at the beautiful sanctuary and approached our pew, parishioner Henry Jesse instantly turned around in his seat in front of us and warmly welcomed us. Then the heavenly music began, and I was totally hooked….
