Help preteens learn they are wonderfully made with this faith and sexuality education program.

First Church is sponsoring this incredible moment and will be partnering with our District and several other churches in the area. See Joy Nichols for more information.

Andover Update: Did you receive it?
 Andover Update – January 2018 was sent from Jim by email on Dec 20. This letter is sent thru a different database than this weekly one and as much as we try, sometimes folks get left out. Please let me know if you didn’t receive the 2nd monthly newsletter so your name can be added.

The staff would like to thank you for your gift to us this Christmas. It is difficult to fully express our gratitude because we know it was given with such love. Please know how much your generosity and kindness is appreciated. We are praying the One who came for us the very first Christmas will come in a new way to your hearts and homes… Because of Him….

Upcoming Dates: 
February 15- 24, 2018 – Trip to the Holy Land
