SWEETS FOR THE PANTRY – TODAY –- “Sweet” sale Discretionary Fund effort to benefit St. Andrew’s Pantry. Plan to participate, donate and nibble – after 8:30 service and again after 10:30.


FOOD INGATHERING – On Sunday, October 29, food will be collected for the food pantry.  We have a need for oatmeal and soup.  Also, the pantry would also appreciate any personal items (shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc.) that can be donated.  Thank you. “What you do for the least of these…”


STEWARDSHIP:  All parishioners have received an invitation to prayerfully consider our promises and our pledges, and an envelope which includes our own pledge card and history, and a return envelope. On November 5, we’ll combine our celebration of All Saints with the blessing of our pledges/promises in a special service.


FILL A SHOEBOX – Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies to reach out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Gifts are sent outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S. Get a shoebox to fill in the Narthex and bring it back by November 13 to bring some Christmas joy to a child who might otherwise have little or none.
