Children on Sunday

Four year olds through fifth graders will be working alongside youth and adults in our hunger project, ‘Feed My Sheep’ each Sunday in June.

“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.

Christmas Worship Services

Blue Christmas Worship
Wednesday, 12/15, at 6:30 p.m.

For many people, Christmas is a particularly difficult time as they remember the loss of loved ones and the other losses of life. While some rejoice at the delights of the Christmas season, others feel their pain more deeply. Gather with us in the Sanctuary to acknowledge all these losses, to grieve those who are no longer with us, to remind ourselves of the faith that sustains us through all of life, and to worship God who came to be with us and promises that even when we walk through the dark places, we have nothing to fear.

Two Christmas Eve Services

4 p.m. Family Service
Music, scripture, and a special children's message will focus on the young (and the young at heart) at St. Andrew's early Christmas Eve service. The service will last approximately 40 minutes. Childcare will be available.

7 p.m. Communion Service
We will welcome the coming of the Christ Child with music, scripture, a homily, and Communion. The service will end in candlelight. There will be no childcare available for this service
