Teddy Bear Sunday: December 2. This special St. Andrew tradition continues at all worship services on the first Sunday of Advent. Bring a new teddy bear with you to worship to take to the altar during the last hymn. We’ll gather all furry creatures then distribute them to caring organizations in our community. Some bears will also be part of our Christmas Grace and Soup Kitchen – given to young children of the families that are a part of these caring community ministries. hhiumc.com.
