Missions and Outreach
Mission for June/July 2021
Feed a Hungry Child Pickens County
The goal of Feed a Hungry Child is to make a difference in Pickens County. We do not want to allow the chill of hunger to get into the stomachs of those especially needy children who would otherwise return to school on Monday hungry from the weekend.
We have decided to extend our April mission through May since schools are now closed due to the pandemic. Your continued support is greatly appreciated. Please send your checks to St. Andrew, indicating “May Mission.”
Other Ongoing Missions:
The Lord's Fund
The Lord's Fund is an ongoing account that serves as a life line to those with needs in the church. Through the Lord's fund the church is able to help congregation members and local families with medical and pharmacy bills, home and transportation repairs, and emergency food, gas, or clothing costs. Please donate to the Lord's fund so that we can continue serving the least of these as their needs arise.
United Christian Ministries
In addition to special mission emphasis months, St. Andrew United Methodist Church offers continual support to United Christian Ministries in Easley. Congregation members are asked to donate peanut butter, jelly, and boxes of macaroni and cheese to this mission. Other items that are always needed for this community food pantry include: Rice, cereal, dried beans, canned fruit, canned vegetables, canned soups, grits, canned meats, canned meals, and fruit juice. We also collect plastic grocery bags to use which are used to distribute food orders to United Christian Ministry clients. For more information, click here: United Christian Ministries Website.
