What’s Happening at St. Andrew’s!

Trunk or Treat –

NEW Event at St. Andrew’s

Sunday, October 29, 2017 from 1:30 to 3:30 PM

Our event will immediately follow the Downers Grove Halloween party in Fishel Park.

Join the fun by creating a Halloween themed display in the trunk of your car. We’ll use our east parking lot. Help create a safe, family, and community activity by distributing candy to children “trick or treating” at our church.

Not up to creating a display? We hope you’ll bring your family and INVITE YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS!

In addition to candy, we’ll offer cider, hot chocolate, and coffee.

Sign up in the Gathering Space to let us know that you’ll join in the fun with your car’s trunk on the 29th!

Questions? Contact Amy Smith (512) 653-8924.

Celebrate Kate

Silent Auction – Sale – Art Show – Fund Raiser

Saturday, November 4 from 6 to 8:30 PM

In the Parish Hall

Kate Reynolds was a talented artist and a long-time, beloved parishioner who passed away last spring.  Her family generously donated some of her works to St. Andrew’s Church – some framed finished pieces, some charming studies, but all worthy of enjoyment and display.

St. Andrew’s will sell the donated pieces to support the completion of our third floor community space – Upstairs at St. Andrews. 

 Join Us in This Celebration!

  • Enjoy beverages and hors d’oeuvres
  • Participate in the silent auction of framed pieces
  • Purchase matted pieces priced from $10
  • Kate Reynolds watercolor note cards available, 5 cards for $10
