Convinced of God's love for everyone, and following Jesus' example of welcoming all, we at St. Andrew's welcome everyone to the table to participate in communion. Whoever you are, wherever you are from, and whoever you love, God loves you and you are invited to share in communion with us.
Our hope has been to continue to celebrate each Sunday at 10:00 am outdoors at the church where there is plenty of room for all to gather with masks and social distancing. However, summer is over and Sunday mornings are too chilly to sit and worship outside. But, because the Covid positivity rate remains high, moving inside means we are faced with stricter masking, distancing, and capacity restrictions. We are hoping the day when we can begin to relax those restrictions is not too far in the future.
You are welcome here!
The North Des Moines Community Fridge is a New Addition to St. Andrew's Space
NDCF was started by North Des Moines Mutual Aid. It is a shed that contains a refrigerator and shelves for dry goods. A sign on the shed says "Take what you need, leave what you can."
If you would like to contribute, here are some things that are particularly useful:
Fresh fruit is more popular than vegetables
Ground beef - label with the date and put in the freezer
In addition to groceries, meals for those without cooking facilities are appreciated. Examples they gave were lunchables, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and home-cooked entrees in single servings labeled with the name of the dish and the date
Bags of dry dog food
The need is always there, but it gets even higher at the end of the month.
