Community Outreach Center

In the fall of 2018, St. Andrew's entered into a process of discernment following the closure of our school. Parishioners participated in meetings together, and in meetings that included members of our community. A Community Listening Session allowed us all to learn about the needs in our city.

A Building Discernment Team worked many months to determine the best use for the former day school spaces. Their recommendation to create a multi-use community outreach center was approved by the Vestry. People in our community are already reaching out to us with requests to use the former day school space.

Building Implementation Team

The Building Implementation Team has planned and overseen the practical and logistical tasks involved in turning our former school spaces into a multi-use community outreach facility. Team members: Dorothy Burch, Jason Carney, Crystal Cyr, Matt Deller, Dawn Edquist (team leader), Tonia Graves, Lynda Gray, Larry Nicolai, Mary Poole, Bill Wilds, and Allie Wittkamp. This team will:

  • Prepare the building space for use (developing a process and guidelines for determining which resources to keep and which to share/discard/sell, and then carrying out/overseeing that process)
  • Lay the “infrastructure” for community use of the space (creating guidelines, policies, forms, protocols to be followed)
