2018 Community Mission Opportunity
January 28, 2018, as part of the worship service, and with the support of Rise Against Hunger, formerly Stop Hunger Now, our congregation will prepare 10,000 meals in Heffner Hall (as we did in 2014 and 2016) to help fight world hunger. The school we help to support with our Change for Children donations is one of the organizations that benefits from these healthy food donations from Rise Against Hunger. St. Andrews pays for the ingredients for these meals, and that money was provided through the use of our campus from the movie that was filmed at St. Andrews last summer.
Everyone participating needs to sign a waiver so in the interest of efficiency, download and sign the waiver ahead of time. Bring it Sunday, January 21, or Sunday, January 28, and hand your completed waiver to Mike Bearden or Mary O’Brien. If you can’t complete it before the event, there will be lots of blank waivers you can use before Rise Against Hunger starts on Sunday, January, 28.
