Seeking the Welfare of the City

We will seek to positively impact the health and well-being of the neighborhoods and comm unities around us; we will become agents of reconciliation in our communities; we will seek to address the underlying causes of the suffering we see around us in order to bring about lasting systemic change.

Habitat for Humanity Build project

Saint Andrew’s members / Faith in Action committee are stepping up to  “build the beloved community”. The Committee felt there was no better way to do this than to participate with Habitat for Humanity in building a new home for a Bryan/College Station family in need of a home. 

The cost of a Habitat home is approximately $55,000, and we are pleased that we have reached this goal. Our next step is to help provide food and onsite manual labor at the building site.   See the information below for all details, thank you for your help in BUILDING THE BELOVED COMMUNITY and SEEKING THE WELFARE OF THE CITY
