Job Description
Our Community
St. Andrew’s, a vibrant and healthy parish, is located in a beautiful recreational lake area of northeast Georgia. At the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Hartwell is a growing community of light industry, recreational activities and small town living. It is within an easy commute to a university town and other metropolitan areas. The charm, convenience, culture and growing school system of this small town make it a great place to raise a family or enjoy the retirement years.Our Church
St. Andrew’s has a Sunday attendance average of 45 communicants. The parish is debt-free and has an endowment to support outreach, capital needs and growth. We enjoy a caring fellowship during worship and coffee hour. Building upon this genuine friendship, we are able to reach outside the church to compassionately serve others while creating a warm and welcoming Christ-like presence in the community. We provide food and financial help for the needy, sing with the elderly and infirm, donate personal items for the women’s correctional facility and domestic violence shelter, gift thousands to community organizations and ministries through our grant program and offer a Blessing of the Animals service to the community. As involved members in church and community, we actively challenge ourselves to love as Jesus, but joyfully find that we are the ones who many times receive the love of Christ.
