St. Andrew’s ‘serves up’ special blessings for KidWorks’ students


St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church of Newport Beach truly reflects the “servant’s heart” described in the Bible.

Longtime and dedicated supporters of KidWorks, the congregation came together once again in late September as part of St. Andrew’s “Serve Day.”  During this event, 18 volunteers—spanning in age from eight to 60—spent about 100 cumulative hours cleaning, painting, repairing and beautifying our Dan Donahue Center.

Our licensed preschool particularly benefitted from the sprucing up.  A bulletin board was added, the playground pathway was replaced and a mural was repainted.

The St. Andrew’s team also prepared care packages for the KidWorks graduates now attending colleges and universities.

“St. Andrew’s continues to enjoy a multi-faceted ministry partnership with KidWorks,” says Kyle Team, a church leadership elder and member of our board of directors.  “The importance of Serve Day is to send our church members out of the pews and into our communities to become the hands and feet of Jesus.  Not only do the nonprofit partners benefit, but our members experience the joy of true selfless service.”

KidWorks deeply thanks the church volunteers, Kyle and the church leaders who worked with her on the event, Dan Wendell, Minister of Missions and Outreach and Julie Wood, Minister of Missions
