Valentine’s Banquet
On Tuesday, February 13th, join your sweetie and our church family for a Valentine’s Banquet here at Andover. We will have a catered meal, entertainment and a time to celebrate a special night. The cost for this event will be $12 per person and child care will be provided (additional $5). To attend, sign up in the back of the sanctuary and see Mike Rudzinski for details. Payments can be placed in the offering with “Banquet” in the memo line.

Prayer and Praise Night
Something exciting is happening on the first Sunday of every month at Andover. In the last 6 months people of all ages and prayer backgrounds have gathered to experiment and experience God in Prayer. We have colored our prayers, spent time in small groups, had extended times of silence, and sang some prayers. Join us next Sunday evening at 6 pm for a night of Prayer centered around “Experiencing the Heart of God.”
