This Week at St. Andrew'sGet involved and stay up-to-date on parish events
Sundays @ 10am
This Christmas, as we have for many years, St. Andrew’s will support clients of the Ann Arbor Community Center with our Christmas Adopt-a-Family program. For the safety of all parishioners, AACC clients, staff and their volunteers, the collection and distribution of gifts will be different this year: all gifts will be in the form of gift cards.
The Community Center asks that cards be for the amount of $50 and recommend that they be obtained from the following sources: Meijer (call 800-487-9460 to order), Walmart (visit walmart.com), or Target (visit target.com). Alternatively, you may send a check made out to St. Andrew’s to the church and a gift card will be purchased in that amount and given to the Community Center. Be sure to include the words “Gift Card” on the memo line of your check.
Please bring the gift cards and unsealed greeting cards to the church by Saturday, December 5 and drop them in the mailbox located outside the memorial garden gate to the right. Do not send cards through the mail. If you have questions, please contact: Scott Gerstenberger (734) 678-0914 or Liz Sweet (734) 320-4968.

Winter Gear for Breakfast Guests
Give to the Breakfast via WeShare
Typically this is the time of year that we would collect gloves, hats, and socks for our guests. In lieu of donating physical items we are asking for financial donations this year to fund the purchase of socks, gloves, and a hat for each guest. It will cost $22 per guest with a total expenditure of around $2,200. Monetary donations for the purchase of these items can be sent to the church or made online at WeShare as a donation to the breakfast.
