St. Andrew Meet-Ups

St. Andrew Meet-Ups are back! 

A Meet-Up is an informal, easy get-together where St. Andrew members and friends gather. We are looking for a few volunteers to schedule and host more Meet-Ups. Hosting a Meet-Up is super-simple: Just contact the church office (, and tell us where you'll be and when. 

The best Meet-Ups are those that are free or very low-cost, are good for all ages, and are focused on activities or events planned by others, such as a fair or festival, or visits to local sites, like a park. Some ideas we have, but that haven't been scheduled, are Meet-Ups at playgrounds, ice cream shops, a dog park, community festivals and fairs, Fossil Gorge, a leisurely walk through a park or along a trail, a bicycle ride, or even a gathering in your backyard

Get the idea?

If you host, you get to pick the event, the venue, and the time! We'll add it to our list online and get the word out through the Mini-Messenger (subscribe here) and the St. Andrew App (download: Apple Store | Google Play).


If you have an idea for a St. Andrew Meet-Up, send an email to the Church Office ( and let us know who, what, where, when, how, and why.
