In partnership with the Grange we are collecting warm winter coats, jackets and heavy sweatshirts for people in need. Please bring donated items to the fellowship hall.
Nearly New items can be dropped off: Sunday, November 10th or Sunday, November 17th between services! Items for the Holiday Fair "Shopping at Santa's Workshop" can be dropped off starting November 3rd in the basket by the office.
On Saturday, October 19th we are going to loiter around local stores and ask people questions focused on community needs, strengths, and how the church can make a positive impact.
We will also be interviewing community leaders in several local towns.
If you want to help with community needs surveys or community leaders interviews--or BOTH--sign up on Sunday, 22nd, contact Pastor Lisa or call Cindy in the office at 322-0088.
Doing these surveys will help us be relevant and responsive to our community!
While there is no uniform definition of sanctuary, its overall purpose is to faithfully and openly act to ensure that all feel safe and welcomed. In its simplest form, becoming a sanctuary denomination means that the ELCA is publicly declaring that walking alongside immigrants and refugees is a matter of faith.Being a sanctuary denomination means that we, as church together, want to be public and vocal about this work.
It will look different for everyone, but welcoming people is not a political issue for us – it is a matter of faith.
We are forming a new team here at St. Andrew called the Tech Support Team! This will be our team of people who can help us when we are having problems with the internet, printer, software, etc.So, if you have any experience with tech and would be willing to be called upon, please CLICK HERE to email Jean!
