Hurricane Relief 

Greetings Sister and Brothers of St. Andrew’s UMC,

I have noticed in my years as a pastor that in the aftermath of natural disasters, the church's compassion and empathy is quickly activated. As I was listening to the news this morning, I heard how the flooding in North Carolina continues to keep folks from their homes, their families, and their life. Sunday (Sept. 16th) marked the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria hitting Puerto Rico - where folks are still recovering from its effects. The latest death toll of Typhoon Mangkhut is over 100 in the Philippines. My heartstrings are pulled, and I'm left wondering, "What can I do?" Perhaps you are asking the same!  Read More......Click Here

MISSION AND SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES

Reading at Lydia Hawk - The Reading Resource teacher at Lydia Hawk Elementary is looking for volunteers to read with a few children during the school day. Beginning in October, Pastor Dirk is looking to take 3-4 volunteers at a time up to the school. This is a great way to begin to build relationships with our community. If you are interested, contact the church office or email Pastor Dirk.

 

St. Benedict’s Community Dinner - Saturday, October 27th @ 3:00 p.m. -This is held at St. Benedict’s Episcopal Church. St. Andrew’s takes turns cooking, and everyone helps serve. In conjunction with St. Benedict’s Episcopal (910 Bowker Street, Lacey) we serve a hot meal for the homeless and low-income people in our community. Come help set-up, serve, clean-up. If you would like for information, please contact Rich Green (360) 943-9290.

 

FORKids Weekend Meal Bags Please take a “Red St. Andrew’s Bag” with you and purchase any of the items listed on the tag attached to the bag. These are the items that we will need when we begin filling these much needed meal bags for the children that can’t afford food for the weekends. If you have any questions you can speak with Dorothy Tyler or Lois Brighten.

 

Lydia Hawk Requesting Supplies - I got an email today that said: "Many of our teachers will need UNSCENTED baby wipes to help with cleanup at lunch time. Several grade levels will be eating at their desks in the classroom. At this time, the teachers are having to purchase these." They are also in need of Kleenex. We are currently collecting until the end of September. If you’d like to donate, please bring in your supplies and place on the circular table outside the Sanctuary.

 

HIGHLIGHTS AND HAPPENINGS

The following highlights and happenings are for our entire community.

Youth Multi-Church GatheringTODAY, from 4-6p.m. @ Tumwater Historical Park, 802 Deschutes Way SW, Tumwater. The South Sound United Methodist Cooperative is teaming up to provide a more robust ministry experience for our kids in 4th-6th grade, and our youth in 7th through 12th grade. Parents /guardians/grandparents and kids in these age groups (and families) are invited to a planning and visioning event with S’mores for a treat.

Disaster Relief

How to give in response to disaster through our connection. When disaster hits, the United Methodist connection responds.
The United Methodist Church is uniquely situated to respond to disasters because of its churches in almost every county and community across the United States and the worldwide Methodist connection with annual conferences, central conferences, and autonomous partner churches on five continents.
As a disaster unfolds, the United Methodist Committee on Relief is in contact with annual conference leadership to offer assistance.
UMCOR is the not-for-profit humanitarian arm of The United Methodist Church and is part of the Board of Global Ministries. Since 1940, UMCOR's mission - providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenges of global health and poverty - has helped heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries.
