You've landed in a great place where the love of God is demonstrated through ancient traditions, practical sermons, and authentic expressions of the Spirit.
The 8:00 AM service is a one hour "by the book" gathering with communion each Sunday.
The 10:00 AM service runs 90 minutes and includes music. Both services offer prayers afterward, and may be "zoom" by clicking the church at the top of this page.
For more information about Andover Community Church, peruse our website, or call the church offices for a visit with the pastors.
We are glad to have you with us.
The service of Tenebrae is perhaps the oldest service of the church. After each station of scripture, prayers, and music, a candle is extinguished, until the church is left in utter darkness. (Almost!) This year's Tenebrae service happens on Good Friday, April 15, at 7:30 PM.
This service will not be zoomed.
In addition, the church will be open all day for those wishing to meditate and read in silence.
Resurrection Sunday services (April 17) will be at 6:00 AM, on Taunton Hill, and 10:00 AM, in the sanctuary - with a breakfast served in the Grange Hall at 8:00 AM. The flowering of the Cross is a highlight of the second service so bring fresh flowers to decorate the symbol of our Faith!
EASTER EGG HUNT FOR CHURCH AND COMMUNITY
The second annual Hippity Hoppity Easter Egg hunt for the community and church will begin at 9:15 AM in the church parking lot. Bring a basket, a friend, and a keen eye to find hidden gems all over the grounds! Parents wishing to help: Call the church office at (603) 735-5160.
IN LOVING MEMORY
Flowers around the altar this Easter are given in loving memory from Jeri to Jackson, Tyreen to the Williams family, Jef and Brenda to Ruby and John Packard and Josephine and Gene DeMarie, and from Bruce and Donna in memory of the Royce and Thompson families.
Blessed are they that die in the Lord, for they shall rest from their labor.
Prayers for healing and comfort are offered by trained prayer ministers after each service. You are invited to come up to the front where a prayer team will greet and pray with you in the compassion of the Holy Spirit.
NEW CHURCH DIRECTORY
An updated directory is available on the Members Portal. PDF downloads also available there. Please check to see your information is accurate and contact the church offices with any changes. Thank you to Beth B. for your work on this project!
SOCK IT TO ME FUNDRAISER for EAST ANDOVER PESCHOOL
A fundraiser has begun and it's all about socks. The preschool receives 50% of all sales. Check out the brochure in the narthex or contact the school through their website here.
As the crisis intensifies and Ukrainians fight for their lives, more and more Ukrainians are being displaced and made homeless. Others will be without basic necessities like water, shelter, and food as basic infrastructure is destroyed. The Anglican Relief and Development Fund (ARDF) has mounted a campaign to raise funds to help. We are currently partnering with those inside Ukraine and those working in bordering countries being overwhelmed with refugees.
Are you able to help? ARDF has received a $100,000 challenge gift to match dollar for dollar the first $100,000 received. This means our personal gifts can be doubled. To give specifically to the cause, earmark your checks "ADRF," or speak to Donna T.
