My church is composed of people like me.
I help make it what it is.
It will be friendly,
If I am.
Its pews will be filled,
if I help fill them.
It will do great work,
if I work.
It will make generous gifts to many causes,
if I am a generous giver.
It will bring other people into its worship and fellowship,
if I invite and bring them.
It will be a church of loyalty and love,
of fearlessness and faith, and a church with a noble spirit,
if I, who make it what it is, am filled with these same things.
Therefore, with the help of God,
I shall dedicate myself to the task of being
all the things that I want my church to be.

St. Andrew & St. Charles is always accepting treasure,
both in the form of gifts and cash. We have an annual rummage
sale in April, for which gifts for resale are greatly appreciated.
Gifts in kind are also welcome, such as supplies to run the
church, educational materials, and food for our outreach food
pantry program. Cash is always helpful, and is used for day
to day operations of the church as well as to spread the word
of peace and love.
We also have
a really easy way to give that only takes a few minutes of
your time, once, and you never have to think about it again.
It's called escrip, and if you shop at Vons, Pavillions or
Safeway, you can register once online and a portion of your
purchases is automatically donated to the church. To
get there easily and start the registration process, just
