Mission & Ministry


We at St. Andrew try to abide by the Five Marks of Mission in our worship and in our outreach programs. Here are some ways to get involved at St. Andrew:

Otsego County Food Pantry

One day every month we serve at the Otsego County Food Pantry. This consists of packaging and distributing food to members of our community who are in need. It requires some physical lifting, but it is a meaningful mission. Please join us if you are able.

Patriot Place

The second Sunday of the month is "Patriot Sunday." A special collection is taken and supplies that are needed by the residents of Patriot Place in Gaylord are purchased and delivered.

Aspen Ridge

The musicians from St. Andrew play music on the third Thursday of the month for the seniors that live at Aspen Ridge, an Adult Foster Care Home near the church, bringing a little fun to our neighboring seniors. We play from 3-4 pm. Please feel free to join us!


We participate in the Gaylord Area CROP Walk, an event sponsored by Church World Services on the last Sunday in September. This annual walk raises money for our own Otsego County Food Pantry as well as other hunger and disaster needs around our country and the world. We rotate the hosting church each year.

Blessing of the Animals

Every year on the first Saturday of October, in honor of Feast of St. Francis, we hold a Blessing of the Animals at the Otsego County Animal Shelter. Pets from across the area come for a blessing and a celebration of all God's creatures. A Blessing is also held at the church the following Sunday.

Angel Tree

Every November we collect Christmas gifts for Otsego County children who might not otherwise have any gifts under the tree. This ministry is conducted under the direction of the Otsego County United Way program and Toys for Tots.
