September is “National Hunger Action Month,” which offers the opportunity for your church to become more aware of the need that exists right in your own communities and all across the land, and to rise to the challenge of feeding the hungry. The Society of St. Andrew (Advance #801600) is providing a variety of free, ready-to-used resources to motivate church congregations to step out on faith to follow Jesus’ commands concerning the poor and hungry. All of these resources are available for free download at http://www.endhunger.org/hunger_action-month.htm or by contacting the Rev. Jennifer Vestal Moore at the Society of St. Andrew at 800-333-4597 or firstname.lastname@example.org
