    The Garden Ministry is an opportunity to donate your time and
    talent to the grounds of St. Andrew’s to maintain an inviting
    appearance for all who enter and all who pass by. All who have a
    willingness to serve and enjoy gardening are welcome to join us.

    Gift Shop Volunteers open the shop, welcome and assist customers,
    log purchases, make change as necessary, lock up and turn off lights
    and music, and returning the key. The gift shop is open for 20 or 30
    minutes after each Sunday service. Volunteers may take one slot or
    both slots on a Sunday. Volunteers are assigned the same Sunday of
    each month (for example 1st Sunday, 2nd, etc.). (Lita Brown: 575-

    The Office Receptionist Volunteer Team assists the staff with a
    variety of clerical duties to ensure a welcoming environment on both
    the phone and in person. Volunteers primarily provide phone
    support, greet visitors, and meet requests from our food pantry.
    They may also assist with the production of the church bulletin and
    newsletter. They ensure the delivery of accurate messages to the
    clergy. Individuals work a fixed schedule to cover office hours.
    Volunteers are scheduled and oriented to procedures to
    accommodate the clerical needs of the office. (Church office: 575-

    Tellers count the offerings after the 10:30 Sunday service and
    complete the appropriate paperwork. One scheduled teller is always
    a member of the Vestry. The 2nd teller is chosen from volunteer
    members of the congregation. Tellers are assigned once every two
    months. (Church office: 575-526-6333, )

    The Vestry is the church governing body that consists of 9 members
    elected by the congregation for a 3-year term. The vestry is
    responsible overseeing the church’s operations including finances,
    personnel, and policies. (David Lutz, Sr. Warden: 575-640-6571,
