At St. Andrews we are continually looking for ways to serve our community. We have partnerships with St. Matthew's Food Kitchen in the Pilsen neighborhood in Chicago and with our Catholic friends at St. Paul of The Cross Food Pantry right here in Park Ridge. As you enter our church you will see red bags with item lists. Take one of these home with you and fill it with the food or hygiene items listed on the cards and we will get it to the people who need it!
St. Andrews members at Feed My Starving Children Tuesday, May 23. It was an activity sponsored by the Board for Social Ministry. We along with many others prepared 16,200 meals that will feed 44 children for a year in El Salvador.
Every Sunday from Labor Day to Memorial Day, St. Luke’s Lutheran Church opens its doors to feed those who have difficulty providing enough food for themselves and their families. St. Andrews is sponsoring the meal on November 6th. Anyone who would like to help prepare the meal or help serve the meal should contact the church office or any member of the Social Ministry Board’
