Worship & Hospitality Volunteers

Worship & Hospitality Volunteers

Great Hospitality is an Important Part of St. Andrew

It all starts with a smiling face and telling people “we’re glad you’re here!” Feeling welcome from the moment anyone walks through the door is essential. 

Below are ways in which we are inviting you to be a part of our hospitality ministry.

Hospitality Volunteers

Age Range: Adults and Confirmation Age Youth

Days/Times: Sunday Mornings after 9:00 AM & 10:30 AM Service

Description: If you have participated in Sunday morning fellowship and enjoyed one of our rolls or coffee, you know how important this ministry is and how much people enjoy it. We have a friendly team of leaders who coordinate this effort every week and they would love your help. If you would like to help serve rolls or coffee—maybe once a month—maybe once a year—click here and you will be directed to sign-up Genius where you can pick your day and time. Thank you so much for sharing your time with others on Sunday morning!

Wednesday Night Dinner Support 

Age Range: Adults and Confirmation Age Youth 

Days/Times: Wednesday Evenings in two shifts 4:45-6 and 6:00-7:15 PM

Description: Our Wednesday Night Dinner is an opportunity for fellowship of the greater St. Andrew family for those participating in the Wednesday Night programming as well as those simply looking for an opportunity of fellowship over a meal. Volunteering as the Wednesday Dinner Support is a vital role creating an atmosphere welcoming all to the table. The role starts with greeting all with a smile while serving food, wiping down tables, serving up beverages, and assisting with cleaning as needed.

Funeral Reception Committee

Age Range: Adults and Teens

Days/Times: When there is a funeral at St. Andrew, you will be emailed and invited to donate food and/or to help set up, serve or clean up the reception. Usually during day time hours. May be weekdays or weekends. Frequency varies. Help when you are available.

Description: We invite you to be a part of our Funeral Reception Team, a rewarding and vital ministry at St. Andrew. Following a funeral, surround grieving families and friends with love and support by providing a comforting meal and warm hospitality. Men and women of all ages are needed for food donations, reception set up, serving/clearing, and clean up. Most events are midday on weekdays and require as little as 1.5 hours of your time. Volunteers are notified via email when needs arise; help when you are able. To learn more or to join the team contact Kim Callahan at kcallahan@standrewlu.org.

We have two teams. One team donates food for funeral receptions. The second team sets up the dining room, serves, and cleans up following a funeral reception. We invite you to join one or both teams.
