Help Share the Love!
Soup Volunteers Needed & Our Soup Store is Open
The Soup Sale fundraiser returns, with all proceeds dedicated to St. Andrew’s co-sponsorship of the Safi family from Afghanistan. Our sale features four delicious soup varieties. Prepared fresh by small crews of parishioners who enjoy fellowship while cooking, the soups are then frozen for you to keep ready until Super Bowl Sunday or whenever you’d like to serve them.
Volunteer Sign-ups are now open for helpers to cook, take soup orders, and manage soup pickup. For those who want to help in another way, Soup Sponsorships will be available.
Pre-order four kinds of soup from our online Soup Store and–on January 29 and February 5–at the Corner Farmers Market.
We Are Hiring! Minister for Children, Youth, and Families
We are excited to announce that St. Andrew’s is seeking to hire a part-time youth and children’s minister. We are looking for someone with a heart for sharing the love of God and nurturing the faith formation of our children and youth. There is substantial flexibility in how the position or positions are shaped based on the gifts and needs of our applicants. You are encouraged to share the link with the job description near and far, and to contact the Rev. Ginny Bain Inman at firstname.lastname@example.org if you know of a potential candidate.
Online Book Study — My Grandmother’s Hands Part II
Would you like to be more comfortable talking about race—to your children, your colleagues, your friends? Resmaa Menachem has written a brilliant book to provide pathways for releasing the constrictions we all carry in this racialized society. Part I examines the nature of this constriction. Part II provides specific practices we can use to release the trauma that we carry and settle ourselves in anxiety provoking situations. A study group is forming to learn these practices. The group is open to anyone who has read and reflected on Part I, either in a group or as an individual. The group will meet on Thursdays from 7.00 p.m. – 8.30 p.m. for eight Zoom sessions, beginning on January 6 and ending on February 17. Priority will be given to the participants in the Part I study and to members of St. Andrew’s. If you have questions or would like to sign up, contact John de Beer at email@example.com.

The Corner Farmers Market, Saturdays, 8 – 12
Corner of W. Market and Kensington Streets
Worldwide, outdoor markets have flourished during the pandemic. That has certainly been the case here in Greensboro. Since moving to our parking lot, the Corner Market has welcomed new vendors and customers. The relocation could not have gone better, and the market is providing a connection point that’s open to everyone in our community: a connection that is so vital for many of us during this time—and all the time.
One Step Further Food Pantry
This food pantry, started at St. Andrew’s and now housed at First Christian Church across the street from us, needs volunteers for a variety of tasks including deliveries and making phone calls (which can be done from home). If you can help, please contact the director, Susan Cox, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bring a Bag, Take a Bag.
Our food drive for One Step Further is ongoing. If you would like to drop off a food donation, you may do so on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. worship. If not attending worship in person, please contact Doug Sanecki at email@example.com to coordinate. Or simply bring donations to the church during parish office hours on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Reusable grocery bags are available in the narthex on Sunday mornings and in the church office on Tuesdays. Thank you for helping One Step Further feed our community.
