Missions & Outreach
St. Andrew's is blessed to have a very active Missions Team
overseeing a variety of mission projects both locally and globally.
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is dedicated to alleviating human suffering around the globe.
Their purpose is to connect the Church in mission, while making disciples of Jesus Christ, strengthen, develop, and renew Christian congregations and communities, alleviate human suffering and to seek justice, freedom and peace.
Sierra Leone Initiative
St. Andrews UMC has joined the Sierra Leone initiative and chose to have a sister church in Zimmi, a village in Sierra Leone. We helped purchase land for a church, helped obtain a pastor and are currently assisting in providing resources for the church members.
Healthy Women, Healthy Liberia
We also have a relationship with Dr. Chris Hena who has a medical clinic in a small village in Liberia. “Healthy Women, Healthy Liberia” is the organization we partner with to help send supplies, both medical and clothing, shoes, whatever the need. Asbury Church, Allentown, PA. is our local connection. They send regular shipments to Liberia in which we help with both the cost of shipping as well as supplies to ship.
Red Bird Mission
Red Bird Missionary Conference, located in the poorest sections of the state of Kentucky. Our giving helps with food pantry, meals to a homeless shelter, children’s school back packs, Christmas Gift ministries, Red Bird Outreach center, and other missions that this organization spearheads.
St. Andrews UMC is very active within our community as well. We hold an annual Senior Luncheon where we provide lunch and a program for our community seniors. We host several community activities through the summer months such as music concerts and splash bash at the community pool.
We participate in the local fall festival to raise awareness of our church, so our community knows they are welcome.
We have an Annual Christmas Hymn Sing for the community. We also make monetary donations to several local organizations such as the Salvation Army, community library, YMCA, pool, and various others.
Panther Packs As a ministry to the children of the Milton School District, Panther Packs provides weekend meals for over 200 school children across our community. Follow Panther Packs on Facebook.
Our missions committee is open to all those who would like to serve the community, spread the GOOD NEWS and be disciples of Christ. We welcome new ideas to accomplish our goals of spreading Christ’s Love and to bring believers into HIS family.
