It is with deepest sympathy that St. Andrew says good-bye to their beloved member, Betsy Hull. Betsy passed away suddenly at home on Sunday, May 28. There will be a service honoring Betsy's life at St. Andrew United Methodist Church on Saturday, June 3, at 11:00 a.m. There will be no calling prior to the service and there will be a private family meal following the service. Bruce and the children appreciate your thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time.

Woods Edge Summer Ministry

Written by Donna Biehl on . Posted in General Announcements

The Tippecanoe Public Health Department has given St. Andrew the opportunity to serve the children in Woods Edge Subdivision once again this summer. Lunches will be offered During the summer to those children that usually get free school lunches. Your help is needed to get the Woods Edge ministry up and running this summer. Scott Eaker is coordinating the daily leaders for the program and he needs your help! Scott is looking for daily leaders for the Food Finders program at Woods Edge. He needs volunteers to take ownership of the lunch hour for one day a week, Monday through Thursday. This will enable each day to have at least one leader and sever leaders for each day would be ideal. Scott will handle getting substitutes for days that the leaders need to be away, have some time off, vacations, and last minute availability snafus.

Each leader will need to attend one training session either on May 10, 11 a.m. to 12 or May 18 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in order to participate in this outreach ministry. The training will be held at the downtown public library in the McAlister Room B, 627 South Street in Lafayette.

Please let Scott know how you would like to be in ministry with him this summer and which day would suit you best. His e-mail is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Many Hands Make Light Work!!

Written by Donna Biehl on . Posted in Church-wide Events

Want to get out in the spring sunshine? We have an opportunity for you to be in service at your church and help further St. Andrew's mission in the community. We are having a clean-up day for the landscaping on Saturday, March 18, beginning at 9:30 a.m. and we could really use your help. Workers are needed to pull away the dead grasses and plants. Pick-up trucks for hauling it to the back of our property will also help. Rakes and work gloves would be helpful. Looking forward to meeting you at the church on the 18th. If there are enough helpers, it should only take a little over an hour. Many hands make light work!!
