St. Andrew’s Outreach Efforts

We are committed to a variety of ongoing outreach ministries.  Yet, we are always prayerfully listening for new ways to be Jesus’ hands and feet in the world.   Traditionally our efforts have focused upon the immediate Derby area, but extend throughout the Diocese of Kansas and into parts of the world  These are examples of ongoing projects and programs which our parish supports:

  1. A ministry of information and presence with victims of domestic violence, through the Derby City Court.
  2. We purchase, individually wrap and deliver a set of hat and gloves to every 1st Grader at Pleasantview Elementary School and a personal gift to every resident of the Westview Nursing Home.
  3. Food for the Derby Food Pantry, is donated month by month.  Each month focuses upon a different need, such as detergents, canned vegetables or hamburger helper.  We support the pantry year around.
  4. Household, kitchen and baby items are regularly donated for Youth who have “aged” out of DCF custody.
  5. Support for Episcopal Social Services, with financial gifts and volunteer gifts of time.
  6. Multiple  Girl Scout Troops and leaders meet at St. Andrew’s, weekly.
  7. We proudly sponsors Boy Scout Troop 247 and Cub Pack 247.
  8. Our Youth Group and adult sponsors provide healthy meals for guests of the  Wichita Homeless Overflow Shelter.
  9. Provide substitute coverage for Sandwich Saturday at St. John’s Wichita.
