Make Christmas Happen at St. Andrew’s

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 Day in Wittenberg 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!
