In The Community

Treasured Times Alzheimer’s Support

Treasured Times is a respite ministry of Custer Road UMC designed to provide care to those in the early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) or related dementia in a safe, secure and caring environment, allowing those with the disease to enjoy socialization outside the home and their caregivers to enjoy time to themselves free from worry and responsibility. St. Andrew supports this caring mission and those with family or friends needing this respite ministry. If you would like to volunteer to serve in this wonderful initiative, please click here for more information.


Families Anonymous  |  Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m., Room 121

Families Anonymous is a fellowship of parents, relatives and friends who have faced up to the reality that a loved one’s addiction to alcohol, drugs, or harmful behaviors is seriously affecting lives and ability to function. Participants are dedicated to doing something constructive about their approach to someone else’s problem. We begin to learn from our own experience and benefit from the shared experiences of others in the fellowship. We realize that we are not alone, and that we can know a new freedom from worry and despair. Contact David Ashburner for more information.
