You will leave the class with completed art and maybe a new sense of what is possible for you to create. All supplies will be provided for your use. Watercolor and acrylic paints will be used.

There is no charge for this class, but a free will donation in the “Saint Andrew Art Jar” is always appreciated to keep updating and renewing art supplies as necessary.

A$K FINANCE | Get your SALC finance questions answered

If you have ever wondered about how church finances are used, the Finance/Stewardship Ministry wants to answer your questions with its new initiative: A$K FINANCE. Through it, you can anonymously ask questions, or share your concerns about Saint Andrew finances.

A black box labeled A$K FINANCE is in the Narthex, along with question forms. Simply write down your question, place it in the box, and the Finance/Stewardship Ministry will provide the answers through the Network newsletter, the SALC Facebook page, the Finance/Stewardship bulletin board, or a Temple Talk during a worship service—depending upon the question. We look forward to responding to your questions and concerns.

EMERGENCY FOOD BASKETS

For those in need, Saint Andrew will again begin distributing emergency food baskets. If you know of someone who could use a food basket, please contact the church office. 

RESTOCKING OUR PANTRIES

At the beginning of the pandemic, Social Ministry donated all the food and supplies that were on hand in the food pantry to central distribution centers in our community. Now all these months later, the ministry has decided to resume some pre-pandemic activities. We are looking for items for emergency food baskets, Easter food baskets, Wausau Warming Center cleaning supplies and our Lenten hygiene drive.

A collection area will be set up in the Fellowship Hall for donated items. CLICK HERE for a printable shopping list of the items we are collecting.
