Last Day to Collect Household Goods at the Church
Summer Household Goods Drive - We have begun collecting household goods (clothing, small furniture, books, CD’s and DVD’s, etc…). If you have things that you would like to donate please bring them to the church starting August 1st. We will be collecting from August 1st through the 25th, so if you feel it’s time to clean out a closet we would love whatever you can donate! Ask your neighbors, family members and anyone else that you know that might have things that they would be willing to donate to the church. This is a great way to help the church budget!! All items will be stored in the garage in the small trailer.

Preschool Report 2015

St. Andrew’s Preschool is a mission of St. Andrew’s UMC.  At full enrollment we can have up to 68 children from our surrounding community.  Currently, we have only 52 children enrolled.  We offer 3 half day classes throughout the week; 2 for children aged 4 and above (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays) and 1 for children age 3 and above (Tuesdays and Thursdays).  We welcome children and families of all faiths and/or no faith to attend.  We employ 6 staff to assist in the nurture and care of our children. All of our staff continues to take classes in Early Childhood Education to keep us up to date on the new and innovate ways to help our children succeed and grow.

Currently, the Preschool pays its own payroll, orders and pays for its toys and supplies and offers snacks to the children enrolled daily.  Year to date the Preschool has given the church $4,000.00 for building usage and $600.00 for insurance costs.  We are also currently offering 3 partial scholarships to families in need.

It is both a blessing and a pleasure to be a part of the growth and development of 52 children and their families. We are able to touch the lives of these families and share the kind, gentle and nurturing ways of our Christian faith.

Barbara Ullmann,
