This commission analyzes monthly financial data, assist in budget preparation, budget amendments, and reports required of the parish corporation. Stewardship is also the responsibility of the Finance Commission. 

“Stewardship is what we do with all that we are and all that we have after we say ‘we believe’. Therefore, the purpose of the Stewardship Committee is to help St. Andrew’s family discern what God is calling us to be and do ,identify the gifts He has given us, and learn how to use these gifts in ways that allow the light of Christ to shine through us in our daily lives.”

This commission oversees the care, repair, management and maintenance of the buildings, structures and tangible properties as directed by the vestry, canons, and state and local laws.

The Property Commission is one of the busiest in the church. They are responsible for making sure the building is safe, clean and attractive for members and visitors alike.

This year the Property Commission has improved the gardens, painted the railings outside and also ensured the safety of visitors by painting yellow safety lines on the steps. Inside the church the Richardson Room where all gather on Sundays has been painted and freshened up. The group has also made repairs to the rectory-fixing the septic tank and the roof.

The group is made up of vestry members and parishioners, everyone is invited to join whether they are handy or not.
