Christmas at St. Andrew’s is a time that brings light and joy to a darkened world. It takes hundreds of people to bring the season alive and prepare us to awaken to the promise of Jesus — from decorating the Sanctuary to serving as an usher at worship to being part of the Christmas Around the World crew.

Be part of it all by giving just a bit of your time and talent during this busy season to volunteer. Friends and family in town?  They are welcome too!


Serve at Christmas Worship

Saturday 12/22, Sunday 12/23, Monday 12/24, Tuesday 12/25

This year, we will have a total of 20 worship services during pre-Christmas weekend, Christmas Eve and Christmas! We need help from more than 300 people to make it all come together. If you’ve never volunteered before, don’t worry — you’ll be trained and assigned a specific duty and section to cover.

Come for a service, and stay to volunteer for the next one! Serve as a greeter, usher or communion server. Children over age 10 welcome to serve with a parent. Contact: Carole Lundell, clundell@saintandrews.org, 651.762.9132.
