 COMMUNITY CARING—Ways to love your neighbor:

Farnsworth Weekend Food Packs our new partnership with Farnsworth Elementary, First Covenant Church and The Sheridan Story non-profit.  Each week we fill backpacks of 100 kids with basic food items to supplement their families’ meals and ensuring that these children have something to eat over the weekend when they are away from school. 

Help Feed Those Who Hunger in Saint Paul.  Non-perishable food donations are accepted weekly at church on the table near the south entrance to benefit Merrick Community Resources.

 

 

Tanzania Student Scholarships

GA sponsors ten students from our sister parish in Kiponzelo. We are asking if you might be willing to sponsor a specific student, or willing to share in a gift that may be combined to sponsor a student. A yearly gift of $380 will pay much of the tuition, room and board costs. There are orange sheets in the kiosk by the Tanzania display providing information. Checks may be made out to GA Church with TZ scholarship in the memo line. Questions: call Jean Schwartz @ 651.770.0975.
