Care Ministries

If you need hope or help,
If you are ready for direction and recovery,
If life just seems discouraging...
we have some safe places for you.

The Deacon Ministry

Sixty-five deacons are ordained to minister to the congregation of St. Andrew's. They are trained to visit in the hospitals, care-facilities and homes offering prayer, spiritual encouragement and comfort. Deacons stand ready to assist families in times of crisis and be prayer intercessors on behalf of the congregation. This is the biblical ministry the church is called to be and do.

Pen Pal Ministry 

Would you like a fun way to reveal a small bit of God's goodness this year?  We are beginning our eighth year of the Pen Pal Ministry where individuals from St. Andrew's write letters to a sixth grader at Newport Heights Elementary School.  It is a wonderful community outreach program and a great way to serve!  For more info, contact Bill Lightcap, wlightcap@cox.net.
