ABOVE & BEYOND
The “Above & Beyond” Gift Program offers members and friends of The Lutheran Church of St. Andrew the opportunity to provide special gifts for the mission of Christ through a Gift Registry that identifies needed items and funds to enhance ministry and operations which are beyond the regular budget. Gifts may be designated for specific items, or to use “where most needed.” Gifts can be given one-time or on an ongoing basis.

GIFTS may be given and recognized in celebration of a milestone of the church, or a significant life event such as a baptism, confirmation, birthday, wedding, anniversary, baptismal birthday, membership anniversary, etc. Gifts can be made in honor or memory of a person to support a ministry or part of the church special to them; to enhance a particular ministry that has touched your life; or to more personally connect with a ministry or item needed by the church.
GIFTS may given on an ongoing basis to help the church strengthen and grow the ministry over time.
GIFTS from the “Above & Beyond” Gift Registry may be purchased by using the a gift order form, or online at the secure giving site. Please specify “Above & Beyond” on checks, giving envelopes and electronic payments to ensure that your gift is credited appropriately.
