The Social and Hospitality committee functions to provide
fellowship and social events for the members and guests of St.
Andrew’s church. We hope to add to the rich spiritual life of our
church by providing opportunities to gather in a social setting.
Some of our functions are fund raisers designed to support
specific projects or the church as a whole; others are for
This group organizes social functions year round. At the
beginning of the church calendar year in December a carol sing is
led by our minister of music which follows a pot luck. On
Christmas eve we have a bonfire in the garden with a small finger
food tasting. This is followed by January’s Italian dinner, a
spring salad luncheon and some years we have had a ham dinner just
after Easter. In the summer the St Andrew’s picnic brings out the
cowboys and poets when we gather for barbeque and s’mores. In the
fall we enjoy a Mexican fiesta and a Harvest dinner and in
November, a fashion show luncheon when models wear clothing to be
sold that has been donated for our early December Regalorama
fundraiser. Most of these gatherings are held in the afternoon
and often have live music provided.
Our responsibility as a group also means that we organize
post-service Sunday morning coffee 52 Sundays of the year outside
in our garden. We are called to set up social gatherings for
memorial services. Occasionally, following a Sunday service, we
have a potluck lunch in the garden.
Two or three times each year the women of the church have the
opportunity to gather for lunch at one of the area restaurants,
organized by one of our members.
Anyone who wants to work side by side other women and men in the
kitchen is welcome to join this hard-working but fun-loving group.
We can always use more volunteers. The group meets
approximately once each month for about an hour to get the
upcoming events organized.
