Following a principle of tithing 10% of what we receive, the St. Andrew Benevolence Fund supports extraordinary ministries with financial assistance inside or outside the congregation where growth in faith, financial giving and/or Christian service are uniquely encouraged.
Recent gifts supported the Women’s Welcome Bags at Stub Hall at Luther Seminary, Forest Hills Elementary church-to-school partnership, Seeds of Support Missions in Haiti, EP Police and Fire Appreciation, Church Anew, and Bloomington Eden Prairie Meals on Wheels.
Grant requests are considered quarterly and following the Benevolence Grant Application. Questions about the Benevolence Committee and Fund can be directed to Pastor Peter Johnson.
