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.

Thank you, Gene Crawford+, for a thought-provoking sermon last Sunday on “Grace”.  Watch for information on how to access it. It is definitely worth a read, if you didn’t catch it ‘live’.

 

WATCH FOR:  The October Newsline… and this year’s Stewardship Invitation in your home mailbox.  The St. Andrew’s community is always astounding in our collective response to our own needs, the needs of the greater community, and our opportunity to worship together.

 

Gamma House gives everyone a big THANK YOU for the $2000 raised last Sunday at the Bluegrass and BBQ Festival.

 

The Blessing of the Animals – We’ll join forces with the Humane Society of North Central Arkansas for our annual opportunity to honor St. Francis, bless our animal companions, and help the Humane Society take care of ‘the least of these’.   Bring your cats, dogs, rabbits, horses, lizards, snakes…

 

Shoe Boxes are here for Operation Christmas Child – Filled boxes due back by 11/15!!  No fluids or candy.
