Join Our Ministries
Growing in Faith Together
Following Christ isn’t something we’re meant to do alone. A gift of the Christian faith is having friends for the journey who support and encourage our spiritual growth. Here you’ll find a sampling of the smaller groups and ministries within Andrews UMC that will help you make those connections and find that support.
Wonderful Wednesdays: Grades K – 4
An adult from Andrews UMC meets the children at Andrews Elementary and walks them down the school house steps for an afternoon of games, snacks, crafts, and Bible-based lessons. Parents pick their children up at 5pm.
All are welcome, but pre-registration is required.
Youth Group: Grades 5 – 12
Our youth typically meet from 5-7pm on Sunday nights for games, dinner, devotions, and a lot of fun. They are also known to go on day trips, retreats, and backpacking trips together. Contact the church office for a current schedule.
All adults who work with our children and youth receive a background check and our “Safe Sanctuaries” training for best practices and good boundaries.
United Methodist Women (UMW) and Men (UMM)
United Methodist Women
The UMW meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 2pm in our Fellowship Hall for service, spiritual growth, and Christian friendship. They love to put their faith into action by supporting local nonprofits and providing meals for families after funerals. Want to get involved?
Contact our UMW President Trudy Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org
United Methodist Men
The UMM meet on the 2nd Saturday of the month at 8:30am in our Family Life Center for a big breakfast and to meet and plan opportunities for service. Joining them is a great way to meet other men who love serving Christ.
