“When you give a party, don’t invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed.
The St. Andrew’s Back Story
In 1985 St. Andrew’s United Church agreed to host a Christmas Party in response to these words spoken by Jesus. Folks from St. Andrews and many other local churches came together and invited those who might be overlooked in the festive season, to a banquet. It was a great party and everyone had a good time.
In 1986 the Christmas Party continued, settling into an evening meal for up to 200 men, women and families. The party atmosphere has never left us, in fact it centers us. We come together each week from different backgrounds, entering the gym at St. Andrews with the focus on being together. We serve, we eat, we visit, and we hope that we all leave blessed.
