Andrews UMC welcomes individuals, non-profit groups, and private parties to make use of its facilities!

The Fellowship Hall has a main area that can be arranged for groups of 15 – 75 people, as well as two classrooms and a small, residential-style kitchen. The church offices are located in the Fellowship Hall.

The Family Life Center has a full-size basketball court that can be used for sporting events, banquets, and parties for up to 300 people. It also contains a commercial grade kitchen, four classrooms, a nursery, a walking track, and an exercise room.

Our Sanctuary is primarily used for worship, but with permission can also be used for weddings, concerts, and special services. It can seat up to 180 people.

We also have class rooms that can be used as temporary office or meeting rooms for businesses or school administrators, and for students who need a place to study.  Our internet has been upgraded to 100mbps with multiple networks.  One class room has multimedia screen capability for presentations.

Exercise Room upgrades complete!  See pictures of equipment, gym, and walking track below.


Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be a church member to use the facilities?

No! Part of our “welcoming” mission is to serve the Andrews community by making our facilities available for everyone to use. Private, for-profit, and non-profit events are encouraged.

When can I schedule an event?

The facilities schedule is typically set on a first-come, first-served basis. You can check our facilities calendar [link] to get an idea of what is available. It is also recommended to call our church office (321-5216), since we have enough space to host multiple events at once. Some of our ongoing groups are gracious enough to be flexible when their regular time is needed.

Can I come play basketball?

Yes! But it’s highly recommended to schedule your play ahead of time. Calendared events always take precedence. If the FLC is set up for an event, tables and chair may not be moved to play basketball.

Several groups have pick-up games throughout the week. Check our church facilities calendar [link] or call the church office to find a group to connect with.

Individuals are welcome use the court to play basektball when the FLC is unscheduled. However, at least one person in the group must have completed paperwork to get permission from the church office. No one under the age of 17 may play without adult supervision.

Can I come use the walking track or the exercise room?

Yes! The walking track is open along with our church office: 8am – 12pm, Monday – Friday. If you would like to use it outside those times, contact the church office to complete paperwork for and access card. Since it is located on the second floor of our FLC, there are few direct contacts with using the walking track – but please be respectful of any events that are taking place in the main area below.

The exercise room is located on the 2nd floor of the FLC and includes an elliptical, exercise bikes, mats, and free weights. Contact the church office to obtain a key with a $10 deposit and paperwork.  New equipment coming in June 2022 that will include all in one trainer and upgrade of free weights.

How many laps around the walking track make a mile?

21 and a half!
