Memorials and Tributes

Dedicating an item associated with our worship space is a traditional way of honoring or paying tribute to those whose lives have touched ours.  St. Andrew has provided well-managed channels to establish and care for these memorial gifts with our Memorial & Tributes Committee.  We have identified selected items on this website that are currently needed.  Guidelines for this process are provided below.

How can I make a Memorial Gift selection?

Use the list on this page to identify an item and notify the memorial coordinator at hartmanrs@comcast.net.   We will make sure that it has not already been spoken for.

How will Memorial Gifts be identified?

Gifts will be identified in a displayed Memorial Record Book.

Gifts in honor or remembrance of one of my loved ones are in the current Memorial Fund.
Can I specify an item from the list to honor them?

Yes, you may request that non-designated funds be put towards an item of your choice.

May I reserve a specific item?

The only way to reserve an item is by making a financial commitment.

When should I plan on paying the specified amount?

Since memorial items will be purchased as soon as possible after gifting, it is helpful if payment can be made within six months of your selection.  If this is not possible, we will work with you to make another arrangement.

Can I convert the pledge I made earlier this year to be for a memorial?

No, memorials are being handled separately.

Suppose an item is not selected by anyone.

Items necessary for worship will be purchased and put into service quickly.  They may be memorialized later.

Will these memorials be handled in the same manner as usual?

Yes, the memorial coordinator will manage the funds, handle the correspondence, and assure that the items are ordered and installed.  Statements for tax purposes will be provided on all gifts.  Payments for the items will be processed through the Treasurer.

Is it possible to make a gift which is not on the list?

Any new item will need to be considered first by the committee and/or the Church Council.
