*If plan on volunteering-You MUST come to training session*
 
We are also looking for a new Volunteer Coordinator and Volunteer Co-coordinator to lead us into 2018.  Now is the perfect time to volunteer as we can give you a step-by-step walk through between now and the week in December.  The Volunteer Coordinator is the liaison between St. Andrew and the Family Promise organization. Duties include a monthly meeting/call-in meeting, planning for upcoming dates and scheduling and organizing our very committed group of St. Andrew volunteers. Family Promise (the organization) and St. Andrew UMC both prefer that Coordinators serve for 2 years and then go back to being part of the at-large volunteer group.  It's time to "pass the torch." 
 
If you have questions, please don't hesitate to email Katherine Cullom at krcullom@gmail.com

Did YOU know.......
Red Bucket
The red bucket campaign has been in place for a few years and we have been able to reduce the mortgage balance a great deal through this campaign.  This year the finance committee is asking each member to make a sacrifice of one dollar each day to go toward our red bucket campaign and reduce our mortgage balance.  We are asking this in addition to your regular giving.  If every member contributed in this manner we would be able to reduce the balance on our mortgage by over $100,000 each year.  Be sure to mark your check “red bucket”.
