Missions

Mission Projects currently under way and supported by the church are:

1. A monthly community dinner and food bank for homeless and group home residents. St. Andrews partners with St. Benedict's Episcopal Church to serve the dinner at St. Benedict's.

2. Monthly filling of food bags of non-perishable food items for weekly distribution to a local grade school so that all children who need it have food for over the weekend. The food is provided by members of the church. 

3. Several members volunteer at the County Food Bank twice a month.

4. The near-by grade school is supported by providing school supplies and numerous boxes of Kleenex at the beginning of the school year.

5. Lunch is prepared and delivered to the local Habitat for Humanity build site once a month.

6. One hundred and fifty hygiene kits were assembled and sent to the Methodist's Committee on Relief.

7. The church provides it's facilities for a weekly meeting of Narcotics Anonymous and Girl Scouts.

 

The Missions Committee does not currently exist. What little activity or decisions are needed are made at the Church Council.
