Care

One of our core ministry values is “Serving Christ by serving others in Christ’s name. The Service Committee and St. Andrew in Mission, with the help of team leaders and volunteers, sponsors and supports many opportunities to serve at St. Andrew and in our community. You will find many of these opportunities described in the "Care" drop-down menu. Explore these to see where God may be calling you.

Information for free meals

We now have this sign in the churchyard, so that someone who is hungry and needs a meal can find one nearby in Suffolk. They insert their zip code, and it tells them the nearest place for a free meal.

What is THAT white collection bin doing in our parking lot?  “I was naked and you clothed me.” ~ Matthew 25:36
Soles4Souls provides shoes to people who need them most. "Because a good pair of shoes can help someone step out of poverty." Session has agreed to host a collection container for this non-profit organization as a way to help those less fortunate have clothing for their "naked"  feet.  Soles4Souls collects primarily shoes and reconditions them for those less fortunate all over the world. They also maintain this
unit and pick up the donations. If you have shoes you rarely use or are ready to pitch but still have some life left in them, please consider
dropping them into this collection bin. For more

In scripture we are encouraged to pray without ceasing. Find out about our prayer ministry on the Caring for our Church Family page.

Finally, we care for the bodies that God has given each of us. We are grateful to our Parish Nurse, Amy Gray, whose blog, Temple Tips, guides all of us to healthier lifestyles.
