THE SHOW WILL GO ON!
The Men’s Ministry of St. Andrew United Methodist Church invites car enthusiasts to bring their cars to the Fourth Annual Cruise-In Car Show “Drive-Through Style,” to benefit The Storehouse of Collin County, on Sunday, October 25, from 1 – 5 p.m., at St. Andrew, 5801 W. Plano Parkway. All makes and models of cars are welcome at this year’s non-spectator show. Drive through, make a $20 donation, and drop off two bags of canned goods to help neighbors in need at The Storehouse of Collin County. Park in front of a display of cars for a photo, which St. Andrew will mail to you. The first 50 participants will receive a goody bag, complete with a T-shirt, and gift cards will be mailed to the top three winners, determined by an independent panel.
“We wanted to keep the show and the momentum going this year and decided to get creative,” said Ron Weaver, organizer. “In past shows, cars have parked and been viewed throughout the day. Last year we had about 80 participants. With the drive-through model, everyone can still participate, and most importantly, we can continue to provide critical funding to The Storehouse. It’s a win-win, and we hope to see a lot of entries this year!”
“We are so grateful to the men of St. Andrew who organize this wonderful and successful fundraiser benefiting neighbors in need at The Storehouse!” said Candace Winslow, executive director, The Storehouse of Collin County. “As our need for services during COVID-19 has multiplied, so has our need for support. A fundraiser like the car show makes such a difference. Just one dollar will provide three meals to a hungry North Texan!”
“Come early to be sure to receive one of the 50 goody bags that will be provided,” added Weaver. “I along with my fellow organizers, Dave Dishman, Bud Farnham, and Jim Priebe, hope you will join us for another fun event benefiting our neighbors in need.”

St. Andrew United Methodist Church began in 1986 in the spirit of its namesake, a disciple of Jesus. The life of the Apostle Andrew embodies the church's mission, which is to invite the Christian-ish and the unchurched to become passionate servants of Christ. The congregation of St. Andrew follows Jesus, lives in relationship, serves others, and takes risks in faith. Worship includes four services each weekend on a 21.2-acre campus at the corner of Plano Parkway and Mira Vista in Plano, Texas, where more than 2,000 people gather each weekend. Recent renovation allows the Sanctuary to host worship in both Traditional style, with the classic pipe organ, and Contemporary style, with a new LED center screen and lighting technology. Small groups and Bible studies gather on campus and throughout the region every day of the week. Mission opportunities serve our local area, neighboring regions, and global communities. The church has been repeatedly selected as a "Best Place to Worship in Plano” by the readers of the Plano Star Courier. St. Andrew United Methodist Church is located at 5801 W. Plano Parkway, Plano, Texas 75093. Visit www.standrewumc.org; call 972-380-8001.
