F.I.S.H.

St. Andrew has long been a supporter of the local Sonoma Valley F.I.S.H. program and is a special project of the Deacons. Numerous members of the congregation provide direct help to the F.I.S.H. program which maintains a food bank, and helps those in need with assistance in obtaining needed clothing, food, and shelter, and referrals to information and support services and rides.

The Deacons designate the third Sunday of each month as F.I.S.H. Sunday to encourage donations of money, food and clothing items which are then given directly to the F.I.S.H. program.

Young Life

Young Life is for all high school kids. At our Monday evening “clubs” we have lots of fun learning about the love of Jesus in a way that today’s unchurched teens can understand. Volunteer leaders cultivate trusting relationships with teens and “earn the right to be heard”. Young Life is a local program that is part of a well-established, successful national and international program, designed to bring unchurched high school and middle school kids to Christ.

Sonoma High School club meets select Monday nights at 7:21 p.m. and going throughout the school year.

Faith In Action

Each year St. Andrew will be shutting its doors for one Sunday and pouring out into the community in an effort to “Don’t go to church, Be the church.”

Members and friends of St. Andrew will have numerous opportunities to be of service. We will have something for EVERYONE to do. There are projects that are going to get us dirty…and projects where we can sit and organize. We have projects that involve tools…and projects that don’t. What is most important is that we ALL participate. This isn’t a Sunday off from church, this is the church.

Mentoring: Stand By Me

The Sonoma Valley Mentoring Alliance invests in the future of our community by fostering enduring relationships between caring adult mentors and school children in need of academic and social support. Mentoring is a proven solution for the tough problems facing many Sonoma Valley children. St. Andrew actively supports the Mentoring Alliance and our members have made a meaningful difference in their lives by becoming a mentor.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity
St. Andrew had been intimately involved with Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County for several years now.  We donated money and many volunteer hours of a Faith Build House in Cotati.  St. Andrew volunteers worked hard to save Irma Castillo’s home in Sonoma as part of Habitat’s first Aging-in-Place project in Sonoma County and recently completed another Aging-in-Place project in Boyes Hot Springs. St. Andrew raises funds for Habitat by means of an annual Jazz Concert. The future will include volunteering on three new Habitat homes in October of 2018. For more information you are welcome to contact David Irvine at here.

Shoeboxes

St. Andrew invites anyone to fill one or more shoe boxes with their own personal selection of toys, games, personal items and gifts. The donated boxes are then delivered to local schools and non-profit groups to be given to local children during the holiday season.
