Andrews United Methodist Church
about our church
For over 100 years Andrews UMC has been an integral part of its namesake community, offering the forgiving and transforming grace of Jesus Christ to its members, visitors, and neighbors. As a United Methodist church we are part of a global denomination committed to “making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”
The Welcome Table
Every Thursday night at 5pm, 75-100 members of the Andrews community gather in the Family Life Center to have dinner and build friendships. Seven local churches and organizations take turns preparing the meals. The doors are always open; come dine or volunteer with us!
Mid-week Eucharist Service from 4:30 – 5:00 pm in the Chapel, prior to the Welcome Table meal that we share together.
This is a formal service. When you enter the chapel you will find located at the end of each pew a meditation to help you prepare to receive communion.
Pastor Tom will be present to offer the host and the cup, which we will share by intinction (dipping the host into the cup), You are encouraged to stay and pray as long as you like.
What we Do
Sunday Morning Worship
Join us at 11am in our historic sanctuary for an hour of worship: a mostly traditional service (think: organ, hymns, the Lord’s Prayer) with some informal elements (like sermons preached away from the pulpit) that is always Spirit-led and full of love.
Grow deeper in your faith through small group experiences. On Sunday mornings at 10am, 5 different classes meet for a variety of ages and interests. Mid-week studies and small groups are offered on an ongoing basis.
Children and Youth
Building a Christian foundation through Wonderful Wednesdays for grades K-4, Sunday night youth group for grades 5-12, Sunday School for all ages, a professionally staffed nursery during worship, and special events and retreats.
Do you want to serve others? Join us as we feed the community, provide a safe place for our teenagers to hang out, provide volunteers for local services, and collect needed items for area nonprofits.
What Drives Us
Andrews United Methodist Church is a welcoming congregation of grace and growth through Jesus Christ.
When we say we are welcoming, we are embracing a longstanding tradition of opening our hearts and doors to the community in a radical way.
When we say we are about grace and growth, we are claiming our Methodist tradition: embracing all of God’s grace and committing ourselves to a lifetime of spiritual growth.
When we say we do it all through Jesus Christ, we are affirming Christ as the foundation and purpose of our congregation.
