Each month on Communion Sunday, it is our tradition at St. Andrew UMC to present an opportunity for giving towards a designated Missions project.
Our November Communion Offering will go towards our 2017 Thanksgiving Baskets Project.
It’s time for our 2017 Thanksgiving Baskets Project! The people of St. Andrew generously provide the traditional Thanksgiving Feast plus a week’s worth of regular dinners. Our outreach extends to more than 75 families in need in the local Ocean County area. We are currently accepting donations of the following non-perishable items for the traditional Thanksgiving Feast: Yams, Cranberry Sauce, Peas, Corn, Green Beans, Turkey Gravy (in jars), Applesauce, Stuffing (in boxes), Mashed Potatoes (in boxes), and Cream of Mushroom Soup. Frozen Turkeys may be donated and brought to the church beginning Sunday November 12 (the day following the North Star Holiday Bazaar).
Additional items needed for the week’s supply of non-perishable food include: Rice, Pasta, Soups, and Canned Meats, plus other canned or shelf-stable foods.
Thank you for your generosity and willingness to share with neighbors in our community who are in need. Project Coordinators are Leah Purpuri and Laura Mistretta, who may be reached through the church office.
The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor. Proverbs 22:9
