Current Mission and Outreach Activity



On December 1st, United Methodists are once again invited to participate in UMC #GivingTuesday. Gifts made online through The Advance will be matched dollar for dollar by the General Board of Global Ministries, up to the first $1 million. UMC #GivingTuesday builds on the recent US shopping traditions of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. It reminds us to extend the generosity and thankfulness of Thanksgiving into the Advent season and offers United Methodists an opportunity to give instead of get through supporting projects and missionaries that are transforming the world.

"The members of First United Methodist Church of North Andover, MA are committed to living out our faith by practicing love, embodying hope and  doing justice.  We believe this part of our mission statement calls us to  embrace Jesus' message of grace, love and reconciliation for all people. Our  welcome knows no boundaries of age, gender, race, ethnic origin, economic  reality, family status, sexual orientation, diverse ability, faith history or social standing.

We proclaim this statement of welcome to all who have known  the pain of exclusion and discrimination within the church. At the same time, we  recognize that there are differences among us.  We do not seek to erase our  differences and believe that we can love alike even though we may not think  alike.   We celebrate our diversity and recognize the sacred worth and  dignity of all people.  We welcome everyone in our journey together toward  greater love, understanding and mutual respect.

We are a Reconciling Congregation committed to the full  inclusion of all people in the life, mission and ministry of our church .  We pledge ourselves to love and support one another and to be a safe sanctuary  for everyone.  We will work actively to change general church policies and  practices to allow the full participation of lesbian, gay,  bisexual, transgender and questioning people, in the ministry and life of the  global  United Methodist Church."

Office Hours: Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 8:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
