St. Andrew's has the rare opportunity to partner with Delores Project and Radian, Inc. in creating a project for a small scale, temporary, Tiny House Village located on a section of the north parking lot. Please join Mike Ogborn, Matt Bentley and Deacon Wib Garfield to learn about this exciting opportunity for St. Andrew's to live into our mission to offer sanctuary in the city, grow in God’s love, and seek the renewal of the world. Informational meetings will be held in the Undercroft after the 10 a.m. services on Sunday, August 14, 2016, Sunday, August 21, 2016, and Sunday, August 28, 2016.
