Our custom at St. Andrew UMC is to present an opportunity for giving to Mission projects as we come forward to receive Holy Communion on Communion Sunday each month. Some of the Mission projects which receive funding from the monthly Communion Offerings include: United Methodist Special Sundays (Human Relations Day; One Great Hour of Sharing; Native American Ministries; Peace with Justice; World Communion; United Methodist Student Day); The Neighborhood Center in Camden, NJ (A United Methodist Women Mission Institute); United Methodist Homes of New Jersey Foundation Fellowship Fund; St. Andrew Youth Summer Mission Trip; Thanksgiving Baskets Project; Angel Tree and Christmas Gifts Projects; and projects related to our Covenant Missionary, Kabaka Alphonsine, who serves in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Thank you for your generous support!
COMMUNION OFFERING ON DECEMBER 31, 2017
The Communion Offering on December 31 is for the Tanzania United Methodist Complex Building Project (Guest House and Reception) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. This project is related to our Covenant Missionary, Kabaka N. Alphonsine, and her husband Rev. Mutwale. St. Andrew has had the privilege of being one of the supporting churches providing financial assistance for the United Methodist Complex in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The project is in need of funding in order to move forward and to complete the first building, the Guest House and Reception. The completion of this building is critical to the greater vision of providing educational and medical resources for the people in Tanzania, as the Guest House would begin to produce rental income when it is completed. Your support at this time would be a great help in this effort, and 100% of your donation reaches the project. Thank you for your generous support!
