Our custom at St. Andrew UMC is to present an opportunity for giving to Mission projects as we come forward to receive Holy Communion on Communion Sunday each month. Some of the Mission projects which receive funding from the monthly Communion Offerings include: United Methodist Special Sundays (Human Relations Day; UMCOR Sunday ; Native American Ministries; Peace with Justice; World Communion Sunday; UM Student Day); The Neighborhood Center; Our St. Andrew Youth Summer Mission Trip; Community Services, Inc./Meals On Wheels; UMC of Tanzania; Our Thanksgiving Baskets Outreach Project; and, Our Angel Tree and Christmas Outreach Projects.
Our July Communion Offering is designated for Community Services, Inc./Meals on Wheels of Ocean County. See the article below for information about Meals on Wheels
Many people don’t realize that our local Meals on Wheels in Ocean County is not an entitlement program. The entire Ocean County Meals on Wheels program is run by Community Services Inc., a private, non-profit charity created by St. Andrew United Methodist Church in 1973. Thousands of Ocean County seniors benefit from Meals on Wheels. Each year, Meals on Wheels prepares and delivers nearly 300,000 hot and nutritious meals, providing nutrition and support services to over 8,000 seniors in Ocean County, NJ. Meals on Wheels allows elderly home bound seniors to continue living in the environment of their choice – at home. Visit their website at www.csimow.org to learn more about the history of CSI; their programs which include Meals on Wheels and Senior Support Services; and their need for private donations in order to fund their good work and to continue to feed and assist homebound elderly in Ocean County.
