This diaconate committee provides opportunities for members of St. Andrew to assist with community needs. The upcoming projects and ministries are:
Give-A-Meal-A-Month – food donations and monetary donations are collected each month for distribution to the Denton Food Center.
Denton Christian Preschool School Supply Drive – art, school supplies and basic necessities are donated by the congregation to assist this Interfaith Ministries of Denton project. The preschool was founded in 1970 by a group of concerned citizens representing 17 different churches who believed that the first few years of a child’s life are the most important.
Mother’s Day Gift Bags – we collect items for mothers that are being assisted by Hope Inc. Hope Inc. is a United Way agency that assists homeless and less fortunate families in our community.
Apple Tree Project – members of the congregation pick an “apple” and donate either a gift card or money for school clothing for a child in need. This is an Interfaith Ministries of Denton project.
American Red Cross Blood Drive – St. Andrew hosts the Red Cross blood drive the third Saturday of each month from 9:00 – 3:00 in our rec center. Members as well as members of our community participate in donating blood.
Our Daily Bread
