Christmas Mission Projects

SAPC participates in many mission opportunities at Christmas and throughout the year. Learn more below about our three highlighted projects – DigDeep Navajo Water Project, Adopt a Family, and Operation Christmas Child.

CHRISTMAS MISSION OFFERING
DigDeep Navajo Water Project

From DigDeep: “The Navajo Water Project was designed to ensure residents on the Reservation have continued access to clean, running water. Not only do we install a home water system, we help with maintenance of the system, and we have a regular water delivery system that ensures their tanks are always full. Water trucks are filled from already established clean water access points across the Reservation and surrounding areas. We have also established a bill pay program to support residents connected to water lines so their water does not get shut off.”

Due to the Pandemic, DigDeep has committed to filling 275-gallon storage tanks until the end of the year, and left open the potential for extension into 2021 given pandemic conditions. Once they are back to “normal” operating procedures, they can move back to installing their 1200 gallon home water systems.

For the 275 gallon tote, the estimated cost is $720 which includes tank + modifications (a base and spigot), water delivery costs for six months, and labor. DigDeep operates on a 100% model, which means all donations go to their water projects! Even if someone sends in a donation that only says DigDeep, that donation will be allocated to water projects.

Our St. Andrew’s Christmas Goal: 10 of the 275 gallon totes for a total of $7200. Let’s bring water to our Navajo Brothers and Sisters for Christmas.

ADOPT A FAMILY

St. Andrew’s WILL still do Adopt a Family this year. If you or your small group would like to adopt a family please contact Kristin ASAP. During this stressful time many families have substantial needs. While we will not be able to do our ornaments in the traditional way, we will have sign-ups virtually. This system will allow you to choose specific gifts for families. Please sign up by December 12 and deliver gifts to the church by December 13. You can also donate funds or volunteer for deliveries! For questions, contact Kristin Enger at kcenger@gmail.com.
