This team seeks to make St. Andrew’s congregation a resource for those individuals and groups, either within the parish family or the wider reaches of Mundelein, Lake County, the state, nation and world who are in need of aid for body and soul.
They serve educators for the parish regarding individuals and groups who are identified as needing assistance. They serve as communicators, facilitators, and coordinators of both needs and opportunities for response, such that the congregation may reach out with compassion and aid whenever and wherever possible. They act as liaison to the congregation for ELCA sponsored social ministry programs as well as act as representatives of the congregation to community based programs that serve the needy, the aged, orphaned, underprivileged, homeless, and oppressed. They seek to learn about and educate the congregation regarding the social statements of the ELCA, and work to bring the healing of Christ to all people.
All are welcome to serve:
Time and Talent sheets are available in the narthex.

. Supporting Disaster Response: As we continue to hold our Ukrainian siblings in prayer, many of us may be looking for more ways to actively engage with showing our love and care. If you know of local organizations supporting disaster response, please share their information with me so I can pass it on! Right now, the main form of response that I have to share is the Lutheran Disaster Response and their on the grounds work. If you would like to support them–whether specifically for their response to Eastern European need, or disaster care in general–please check out this link: https://www.elca.org/Our-Work/Relief-and-Development/Lutheran-Disaster-Response/Our-Impact/Eastern-Europe-Crisis-Response
