At St. Andrew’s Church, we are blessed with a strong tradition of inreach and outreach. There are a variety of inreach and outreach opportunities at St. Andrew’s Church though which our parishioners put their faith into action. Inreach ministry is designed to care for fellow parishioners. Outreach ministry is meant to serve people outside our parish. Outreach entails the donating of time and resources to benefit nonprofit, religious, civic, and community-based organizations in an effort to improve the quality of life for others. Inreach and outreach are a response to the biblical injunction to love our neighbors as ourselves (Leviticus 19:18; Matthew 19:19; Matthew 22:39; Mark 12:31; Luke 10:27; Romans 13:9; James 2:8). We live out this biblical injunction in service to our neighbors both inside the parish and outside of it, to neighbors in Collierville, Shelby County, and around the world. No matter the ministry, the people of St. Andrew’s Church reach out in many ways and give generously. We invite you to join us in putting your faith into action. Through participation in the outreach programs listed below, we invite you to explore opportunities for community involvement and spiritual transformation at St. Andrew’s Church.
By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. (John 13:35)
