The people of St. Andrew's are convinced that God's desire is for all all people to experience the promise and possibility of an abundant, vibrant, and hope-filled life.  Of the many things that Jesus' mission among us proclaimed was that God most often shows up with skin on, and as Christians our lot in this world is to join him in being God's heart and hands in the world.  This is in keeping with St. Andrew's historic legacy of urban ministry and social justice reaching back to our genesis as a mission of St. Paul's Church and as a benefactor of Grace Arents.  This legacy is as vital to our mission today as it was back then.  It is how we are called to be in the world as Christians, and we do this in a number of ways through financial and volunteer support both corporately and individually.
