Why We Serve?
We believe that the church, as Christ’s body, is the hands and the feet of Jesus. In the words of St. Teresa,
Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which He looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which He blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet. Yours are the eyes, you are His body. Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which He looks compassion on this world. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.
Practically, this means that we are intentional about loving our city. We seek the common good by proclaiming, in word and in deed, the transforming story of Jesus Christ.
Ways to Serve
Austin Street CENTER
One of the ways we serve the common good at St. Andrew's is by feeding homeless men and women once a month at Austin Street Center, a shelter that provides the basic needs to Dallas's most vulnerable. We meet at the church on the second Sunday of each month at 4:00pm to drive to the shelter. For more information, please contact Carol Gogates.
Brotherhood of St. Andrew's
The Brotherhood of St. Andrew's is an international men’s ministry to men and boys in the Anglican/Episcopal Church. The mission of the Brotherhood is to bring men and boys into the deepest possible relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, by living a life committed to prayer, study, and service. Our local chapter meets in the chapel on the fourth Sunday of the month following the service. For more information, please contact Horace Blake.
Music Ministry & Worship
Do you love to worship? Then consider participating in one of our worship ministries. If you like to sing, or if you play a musical instrument, then contact our organist and choirmaster. If you would like to participate in the liturgy, then consider becoming an Acolyte. Or, if you want to work "behind the scenes" to support the worship, then consider joining the Altar Guild.
