We are in a time of discernment as to the next steps for developing the building at the Andover Campus.
  • Please try to attend a home meeting. It is during these get togethers that we will have time to answer your questions as well as give you the latest updates on cost projections, timeline, and potential usage. The intimate setting provided for great discussion and openness at our first meeting.
  • We will meet to pray each Wednesday evening at 6:00pm in the Sanctuary at Andover.  If you are unable to make it to Andover, we still invite you to pray at 6:00pm each Wednesday.
  • We will be publishing a Scripture reading and devotional  thought throughout the three weeks. Please sign up.
  • The sign up sheets are in the back of the sanctuary or you can email Vicki Lanham – vicki.lanham@yahoo.com or vicki@1stumc.org

Blood Pressure Screening Sunday Jan 24
Plan to have your blood pressure checked by our Faith Community Nurse, Donna Thompson. She will be available after both services.
Ash Wednesday is February 10th.
All campuses will be together at our downtown location for our service at 6PM. If you would like to come for dinner beforehand, it is $5 per person / $20 max per family. Dinner begins at 5PM. RSVP – 233-0545 by Feb 8th is needed.
ZIP LOCK BAG MINISTRY
Embrace has asked that the $2 placed in the bag be put into an envelope along with the personal note so it cannot be seen in the bag. They are leaving them at the homeless shelters and the $2 is a draw for people to open the bag and take it out. THANK YOU so much for you participation!
 Altar Flowers Poster

The altar flowers are not only beautiful but also a meaningful way to honor a loved one. We are taking reservations for placing flowers on the Altar through 2016. Please see the sign-up boards in the hallway to the left as you enter the sanctuary. The cost is $50 per week which can be placed in the offering plate with the designation “Altar Flowers” on your check.
Hearing Devices are now available for use during our services. They are located in the back of the sanctuary.
