Holy Land trip begins
February is American Heart Month!
Have you had your blood pressure checked recently? Donna Thompson, our Faith Community Nurse will be available after both services this Sunday, Feb.11 for blood pressure screening.
The scripture for this Sunday is Matthew 6:19-24.
What are the desires of your heart, what do the scriptures tell us about that? Can you serve 2 masters? Reading this passage before Sunday will give you some insight and prepare your hearts for worship. Be blessed!
Prayer and praise night:
This Sunday evening at 6:00 we will be having our prayer and praise time. Carol Rudzinski shared about this last Sunday… it is a wonderful time for us to set aside to be together. We do this once a month, usually the first Sunday night of the month so try to join us as we enjoy the heart of God with each other.
Kristen Schill started the children’s choir last Sunday! The practices will be from 9:30am-10:00am on Sunday mornings in the “yellow room”. Come and join them!
Youth – Sunday evening Snack Suppers
We still have some vacant times available, if you would like to support our youth by providing a snack supper.

Please notice that this Sunday and next need to be filled. If you need some ideas on what to provide, talk to Wilson on Sunday… he would be happy to help!
This Wednesday begins the season of Lent – in this service and throughout this season, together we acknowledge where we are, we own it, and recognize we cannot fix ourselves by ourselves, and we seek God’s mercy and power to renew ourselves in Jesus. Ash Wednesday is a time to begin with repentance and quiet as we reflect on our brokenness. Please join us at 6:30 PM for a time of reflection, challenge and communion to begin this holy season.
Andover Basic’s Class
Are you new to Andover? or… maybe want to know a little bit more about the church? or… interested in taking a next step into Membership?or to meet some of the staff? Then mark your calendars for March 4 at 9:45 for a short time of information and fellowship with Pastor Jim and members of our staff/leadership. We’ll meet in the choir room with coffee and doughnuts. We hope you will join us.
We have needs for altar flower sign ups. If you enjoy the flowers in the front of the sanctuary and would like to contribute, please check the poster(s) in the back of the sanctuary. As always you can honor or remember someone. The cost is $55. You can pay by check and place it in the offering plate. Please write altar flowers on the memo line.
There are 2 posters… one for Jan thru June and one for July thru Dec.
Making summer plans? If you would like to see some information about Aldersgate Camp, brochures are available in the hallway outside of Pastor Jim’s office.
