Community Garden

St. Andrew is a place of hospitality where new people are welcome to plant new seeds for
their spiritual and personal growth. Our mission is not only to grow food but to grow relationships.

Our community garden is made up of 100 plots and a Mission Garden. Each 8 x 8 foot plot is $15 per year. Gardeners share the labor in our Mission Garden, which grows literally(!) tons of vegetables for Family Service, Inc., Tumbleweed, and the Montana Rescue Mission.
All these agencies distribute food to families in need or in crisis. The St. Andrew Community Garden began in 2003 with a vision to actively respond to Christ's call to feed the hungry—both physically and spiritually.

Rescue Mission Quilters

Our quilters meet twice a month to cut, sew, lay out blocks, and tie.
They have made over 300 quilts to give out to the Montana Rescue Mission and the Yellowstone
AIDS Project. Anyone interested is invited to share in both the fellowship of the quilters and the satisfaction in helping people stay warm in a handmade quilts made with love

Tumbleweed
On the first Sunday of the month, we ask for donations of non-perishable food items for Tumbleweed. They care for homeless teenagers and teenagers in crisis and their families, finding housing, giving food, and providing counseling.
We collect juice boxes, hygiene and grooming products, socks, beef jerky, and headphones and give them to Tumbleweed.

New Project
In 2014, we became sponsors for the Special Needs Life Skills Classroom at Central Heights Elementary School. The young children have long bus rides to school, and get hungry mid-morning. Their hunger keeps them from learning, so we provide daily snacks.

Deacons
The deacons of St. Andrew provide a ministry of care and compassion, providing an extra measure of love and attention for those in special need of it. The deacons prepare Christmas baskets and keep in touch with members who cannot attend church regularly.
