Mark 15 Worship
is your response to God’s love for you…how will you prepare to receive his word for you? One step could be to read the scripture before Sunday. To prepare your hearts for worship this Sunday, read Mark 15:1-15.
Easter Lilies
It is time to order Easter lilies to celebrate Christ’s Resurrection and help beautify our sanctuary . The envelopes are available in the sanctuary and are due March 18.The cost is still only $10 per plant. Place the completed envelope in the offering plate or give to Vicki Lanham. Thank you.
Prayer and Praise Night
This Sunday evening, our monthly prayer and praise night will invite us to explore an ancient and much misunderstood practice in Christianity – fasting. Join Dr. Timothy and Julie Tennent as they share their insight. Join us at 6 pm as we sing, learn and pray together.
Andover Egg Hunt
On Palm Sunday (3/25) we will be having a family event from 3pm-5pm for all ages! There will be crafts, dying eggs, decorating cookies, making crosses out of coins and a teaching moment to talk about the real heart of Easter! We will conclude with an egg hunt for the children!! We hope you will join us for this time of fellowship!
Donations are needed…interested?  Please select an egg from the bulletin board in the back of the sanctuary. Bring the donations to Andover no later than 3/21 unless specified differently. Thank you in advance!

Mark your calendars! We will begin classes 4/8 – 4/29 on Sunday mornings at 9:45am for those interested in becoming members at Andover. If you’re not a member, would you consider linking arms and joining with us? Contact Pastor Jim to signup.
