As per tradition, we will worship at the park followed by amazing food and fellowship. The park has restrooms, a volleyball court, horseshoes and walking trails.

Finance Update

We are approaching the 4th Quarter of the year. This past quarter (i.e. summer) saw us fall behind in our pledge and loose income, which is typical of every summer. Our income shortfall stands at over $20,000. As everyone gets back into a routine, please remember St. Andrew in your support and giving to support our important mission.

Never Spend Another Nickel

Nicholas is the child we support through Compassion International. Nicholas lives in Ghana and has been corresponding with SAPC through our Service Project Youth. You can support Nicholas by not spending those nickels and donating them to the nickel jar located on the table in the Narthex. It really adds up!

So remember, don’t ever spend another nickel!
