At St. Andrew’s, we do our best to follow Jesus’s call to love and serve our neighbors, especially the poor and the marginalized. We work with several local nonprofit organizations as well as with programs in Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico. In Seguin, we partner with Meals on Wheels, Seguin Youth Services, Child Protective Services, Guadalupe Valley Christian Counseling Center, Guadalupe County Children’s Advocacy Center, Christian Cupboard, Angel Tree, Rodriguez Elementary School Backpack Program, Seguin Pregnancy Center, and more. If you are interested in getting involved in these programs, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Habitat for Humanity helps families to achieve stability and self-reliance by helping to provide them with high-quality housing. The Guadalupe County Habitat team is out building houses every Thursday and Saturday. It’s a lot of fun and you don’t have to have any construction expertise.
MEALS ON WHEELS
Contact: Amy Richards – email@example.com
Meals on Wheels provides nutritious meals to the elderly and disabled who are confined to their homes. These meals not only provide much-needed nourishment, but they also provide the homebound with a friendly social visit every day. When you volunteer with Meals on Wheels, you will drive a designated route and deliver meals to 4 or 5 homes. The whole process takes about an hour. St. Andrew’s is the hub for MOW in Guadalupe County, so pickups and drop-offs happen here in our church office. You can sign up to drive as often as you would like – once a week or once a month.
Seguin Youth Services
Seguin Youth Services provides after-school care for children from underprivileged neighborhoods. They help children complete their homework, learn life skills for success, build friendships, and have fun. Many St. Andrew’s members serve as tutors, helping the kids do their homework or listening to them read. We also bring the kids over to St. Andrew’s on Wednesday evenings so they can participate in our children’s choir, Joyful Noise, and our Youth Group. This is a great way to have fun and give back to the community.
St. Andrew’s is involved in several overseas missions. We support Iglesias Manos De Dios, an Episcopal Church in Danli, Honduras. Once a year, a mission team travels to Honduras to support the church and provide a free vision clinic for the community. The Manos de Dios team also awards scholarships to students, allowing them to attend middle school, high school, and college.
The Owen Project provides laptop computers and tablets to children and teachers in Honduras and Guatemala. These computers greatly expand the children’s opportunities for learning. The Owen Project mission team travels to Central America every summer to deliver the computers and teach the children and teachers how to use them. For more information about our World Mission projects, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to these four organizations, St. Andrew’s financially supports the following local organizations: Guadalupe Valley Christian Counseling Center, the Children’s Advocacy Center, the CPS Rainbow Room, Christian Cupboard Food Pantry, the South Texas Pregnancy Center, and the Rodriguez Elementary School backpack program.
