Mission Trip: Honduras, October 27-November 3
In case you were thinking about being a part of this trip and thought it had passed you by, I’ve heard that a few more team members could still be included if you act right away. These trips really can be life-changing – between the global perspective of travel and the challenge of living out your faith in Christ in new ways, combined with the team experience and chances to make new relationships with people you would never otherwise meet, the opportunities for transformation are many. If you want to explore a calling to participate, talk to me right away, or contact Commission Expeditions directly.
The website for the Honduras trip can be found here:

Backpack Ministry Information—
News Report: In September 5 schools received food packages every other week. We are serving 180 children each week and this number will rise during the year.
The third Sunday of each month emphasizes backpack ministry. Needy kids are given a gallon Ziploc bag filled with food items for the weekend to be carried home in a backpack.
Each bag contains these items:
3 Breakfast Items - individual servings such as oatmeal, cereal, or pop tarts
3 Protein Items – individual servings such as spaghetti-O’s, beanie wienies, Vienna sausages, mac & cheese, etc.
2 Juice Boxes/Bags – individual servings such as fruit/ juice boxes
Other items include pudding or fruit cups, granola bars, pretzels, chips, cookies, peanut butter or cheese crackers, etc.
How you can help? You may shop for these items or write a check to St. Andrew designating it for backpack ministry, and we will do the shopping for you. Look for collection boxes in the narthex and fellowship hall. Thank you for being so faithful to bring items for this ministry.
