MEET THE NEED: NEAR AND FAR
SAPC’s Action Items to address the Migrant Crisis
St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church has discerned the call to stand in the gap for the asylum seeking migrants in need. We desire to do this in several ways, near and far.
NEAR: Stepping into Faith Shoe Drive
We will be filling the St. Andrew’s big van with new children and teen shoes! The drive will take place from June 2-16 and will include other requested supplies as well. Look for the St. Andrew’s van in the Courtyard on the NE Campus and in front of the Sanctuary! Supplies will go directly into the van! Thank you for showing God’s love in this unique way!

NEAR: prayer Vigil
We will be hosting a 12-hour Prayer Vigil on June 17 from 6:00 am - 6:00 pm in the Chapel. Let’s join together in prayer for the asylum seeking migrants who are being dropped off in Tucson as well as the complex migrant crisis at hand. Please sign up for a 30 minute time slot, or please feel free to stop by at any time. We will end the Prayer Vigil at 6:00 pm with a light dinner, testimonies from shelter volunteers, and corporate prayer.
FAR: World Vision in Guatemala
A new opportunity has been brought to St. Andrew’s to meet the need of those experiencing poverty and other struggles in Central America. World Vision, a global Christian humanitarian organization, partners with children, families, and their communities to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. We will be partnering with World Vision on a new project in Guatemala this June.
St. Andrew’s hope is that through this new partnership, we can help provide safe, stable communities with access to food, medical care, and education. Bringing these opportunities to vulnerable children and their communities dramatically drops the need to migrate away from their home country.
