Being One Body In Christ
We will be an inviting, growing and healthy church family in which all people feel that they are welcomed, belong, and are connected. We will work towards living the values to which we aspire.
We promise in our Baptismal Covenant that we will seek and serve Christ in all people, loving our neighbor as ourselves. One way we do this is by caring for one another. In the Church we call this care, pastoral care. Our team of Lay Pastoral Assistants provide pastoral care for the members of Saint Andrew’s through personal visits, phone calls, emails, and notes or cards. Their work supplements the work of the Food Fairies who deliver food to those have recently returned home from the hospital, and the Lay Eucharistic Visitors ministry.
“I think of pastoral care as accompanying one another through times of suffering and grief, and also accompanying one another in times of joy. “ – The Rev. Daryl T. Hay
