Here at Grace and St. Andrew’s, we believe that our faith is lived out most fully by offering ourselves in service to others. We are proud of the deep ties we share with the wider community and strive to share the love of Christ with those around us. Some of the many Outreach initiatives we support include:
Grace’s Table – our Community Food Pantry is open 4:30-6:00 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month. Currently, our supplies are running a bit low, and we’d like to restock! Please bring any non-perishable items you can donate. In particular, we could use pasta, tomato sauce, cereal, canned fruit and vegetables, tuna, beans, pudding and Jello, peanut butter, instant potatoes, and boxed macaroni and cheese.
St. Andrew’s Soup & Sandwich – providing meals on the first and third Saturday evenings of each month from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the downstairs room at St. Andrew’s. Everyone is welcome for some hot food and lively conversation.
School Supply & Backpack Program – in support of our local Elementary school and Nazareth School in Rochester. We collect bottles and cans to raise money for the school supplies and backpacks. Please consider bringing in any empty bottles or cans (or the change you receive from returning bottles) to raise money for backpacks for children who cannot afford them. Over the summer, we raised enough money to buy 18 new backpacks and fill them with brand-new school supplies! Throughout the winter, we are continuing the program to purchase new supplies to donate in January, at the start of the second half of the school year.
Coat Drive – Thank you for all who donated weather clothing to Cameron Ministries!
And so much more!!
