Children on Sunday
“Feed My Sheep”
June Intergenerational Church School Class for the WHOLE St. Andrew Community
Have you ever wanted to help hungry people but haven’t really known how? You’ll have a chance to do just that with hands-on projects for people of all ages during the Sundays in June.
Many of St. Andrew’s oldest mission partnerships are with agencies dealing with food insecurity. Read on for details on what we’ll be doing to help four of these agencies.
Sunday, 5 June – Sorting food for Suffolk’s downtown food pantry. St. Andrew sends both food and money to the Suffolk Christian Fellowship Center’s downtown food pantry, one of the few agencies in Tidewater that remained open throughout the pandemic. Not only does the SCFC open their doors to walk-in customers, but they also do satellite food distributions throughout the city. We’ll be sorting a large donation of non-perishable food for them on this day.
Sunday, 12 June – Baking and decorating cupcakes for the Salvation Army’s Soup Kitchen. Once each month a band of St. Andrew cooks heads downtown to the Salvation Army to make and distribute a hearty lunch of soup for 125 hungry folks. Dessert is always cupcakes, made by some of our finest St. Andrew bakers. This month, however, you’ll get a chance to bake and decorate the cupcakes.
Sunday, 19 June – Packing groceries for migrant farmworkers.The Presbytery of Eastern Virginia partners with two Head Start centers on Virginia’s Eastern Shore to help support families of migrant farmworkers there during the summer. St. Andrew will be collecting groceries in the weeks leading up to this activity and will spend this class packing grocery bags to be donated to the farmworkers.
Sunday, 16 June – Making casseroles for ForKids. The ForKids agency helps families with children who are experiencing homelessness. St. Andrew provides Easter baskets each year as well as occasional meals for the families. We’ll be making baked ziti casseroles together on this day.
There will be jobs for all ages during these Sunday projects, and we’d love to have you join us.
All projects will take place in the church Atrium at 11:00 a.m., after the morning worship service.
Join us at 10:00 a.m.
