Rector's Warden's Report
Happy New Year, St. Andrew's! As we enter into 2023 I can’t help but think back at all that was accomplished last year, and then imagine what this next year holds for us at the church. There is a key ingredient tied to our future, and it’s you. Last year was a success due to the committed and active people we have in our church community. From coffee hour to altar guild to fundraisers to ushers to acolytes to vestry to teachers to outreach, to… well, the list goes on, and we couldn’t do what we do without these precious volunteers.
And although we have many involved, there are hands that are idle. If you are not involved, we miss you, and we can do so much more with you. So, for 2023, if you are ready to get involved or you want to do more, let Rev'd Ben, me, or anyone on the vestry know. We will happily help you engage in areas where you can use your unique gifts and talents to help support the mission of St. Andrew's. I’m certain you’ll be thankful you did, so what are you waiting for?
Here’s a summary of our current Highlights, Opportunities, and Dependencies as a church:
