Special Offerings

 

Saint Andrew UCC, Louisville's Good Samaritan Fund 

 

On the first Sunday of each month at Saint Andrew UCC, Louisville, offering plates are presented at each exit from our Sanctuary and the Good Samaritan Offering is taken.  This fund is overseen by our Pastor, the Chairperson of our Community Outreach Team and the Church Treasurer. Substantial check contributions and suggestions for worthy recipients can both be directed to our Pastor.  The funds from this offering are used to assist Saint Andrew UCC, Louisville members when requested at a time of special need.  The identity of such member is held in the strictest of confidence. Since its inception, the Good Samaritan Fund has made a real different in the lives of many of our members. If you wish to make a substantial check contribution please contact our Pastor at (502) 452-1777, Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, or use our on-line contact form.
