SPIRIT LAKE MINISTRY OUTREACH PROJECT
This is a special outreach to Native American children through a program sponsored by the Spirit Lake Ministry Center in North Dakota (an approved United Methodist Volunteer in Mission destination). Each year at St. Andrew UMC, we gather donations of age-appropriate toys, stuffed animals, school supplies, hygiene items, and hats and gloves, and arrange them into gift-filled boxes which are mailed before Christmas to the Spirit Lake Ministry Center in Sheyenne, ND. For Christmas 2019, St. Andrew UMC prepared and shipped 32 gift-filled boxes! After reaching the Spirit Lake Ministry Center, these gift-filled boxes would be distributed as part of the Center’s 2019 Christmas outreach program reaching Native American children in need living on reservations in ND, SD, and Minnesota.
Thank you and God bless you to everyone at St. Andrew who donated items, decorated gift boxes, or participated in any way! Please continue to pray for the children who received these gifts, and for their families!
