St. Andrew Church Council
At St. Andrew, we refer to the leaders who serve on the Church Council as "stewards." Stewards are entrusted with special tasks and are accountable to the "Master." Our wonderful stewards assume their leadership roles, understanding that they are the also the servants of the church.
Keith Dodson is the Chair of the Church Council.
A few years ago, the Church Council adopted the following mission statement for St. Andrew which they think still embodies the spirit of the St. Andrew congregation:
The Mission of St. Andrew By-The-Sea is to be an
body of Christian believers
seeking God's guidance
as we minister to others.

Town Hall Gatherings
St. Andrew held two Town Hall gatherings on August 1 to discuss the renovation of the Chancel next summer. On September 22, we will hold a Church Conference at 6:00 p.m. to vote on the creation of a Building Committee for the project. Click here for the You Tube videos of the evening Town Hall meeting to help you become more familiar with the concept. Note that the chancel was built out to size to give us a life-size view of the plan.
Additional Town Hall sessions will be held Monday, August 26 at 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, August 27 at 11:00 a.m. on Hilton Head, and on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Bluffton Ministry Center to discuss our Bluffton Extension as well as another presentation of the Chancel Project. At the Church Conference on September 22, we will also be taking a vote regarding our moving forward with our plans in Bluffton.
