NEW IN 2019: ST. ANDREW'S $5 HOT LUNCHES –a Community Ministry and Fundraiser to Fight Hunger in St. Mary's!
Beginning Saturday, January 5, 2019, St. Andrew's will offer a $5 hot lunch (soup, sandwich, and drink) in the Parish Hall during Thrift Shop hours (10am - 1pm) during the month of January. We are hoping to get three crock pots of soup, five loaves of bread, cheese, lunch meat and baked goods (a batch or store-bough bag of cookies or two, for sale at $.25/each) donated to support lunch each Saturday (5, 12, 19, 26). If you don't have time to cook and would prefer to supply ingredients there are willing cooks available. The goal is to provide a low-cost lunch for all community members and raise funds to support families in need of food in our county. There is a sign-up sheet in the parish hall. For any questions, please contact Kerri Frank, Community Outreach Vestry Member, at 240-577-2747 or Depending on the success of the January pilot, this outreach may be extended through the end of March. Thank you so much. I think this is a great way to engage the community and provide a vital resource in the cold months.

8:00 AM OR 10:30 AM (With Choir and Organ).
