Invitation to a Miracle – Andover Chancel Choir

We are so blessed to have our Chancel Choir lead us in worship this morning with a special Advent and Christmas Cantata entitled “Invitation to a Miracle.” Our choir is such blessing to our family, as is the leadership of our Director Janell Hamilton. Huge thanks to all who invested and made this morning so special!

POINSETTIAS Orders are due today

Envelopes to order poinsettias ($10) are available on the table in the back of the sanctuary. Please place completed envelopes in the offering plate or give to Vicki Lanham. Plants may be picked up after the Christmas eve service.


The tree to the left front of the sanctuary is our Memory Tree. You are encouraged to place an ornament on the tree in memory of someone. We also have a Memory Book to record the names of our loved ones.


Give, and it will be given to you.  They will pour into your lap a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.  For by your standard of measure will be measured to you in return.    Luke 6:38

God has given Andover FUMC a staff that pours devotion, theology, warmth, knowledge, truth and integrity into our Church.  The love that these 10 individuals have for us runs deep within their hearts and provide us with what we need on a weekly basis.  They GIVE their all to us.

It is time for our church family to give back to the staff of Andover during this Christmas season and thank them for their loyalty, labor and love. Give, and it will be given to you.

Through December 17, please place your love offering in the offering plate (designate “LOVE OFFERING” on an envelope or memo line).  You may also give your offering to Jill Mahan, Brad Rudolph or Bill Mattingly. Let us return to our Pastor and staff what they have given to us.

Merry Christmas – Your Andover Leadership Team
