Current Mission and Outreach Activity

Diaper and Underwear Drive for Communities Together
First United Methodist Church will again be participating in the annual Lenten Diaper and Underwear Drive for Communities Together. Communities Together (formerly the Greater Lawrence Council of Churches) is a collaborative of Christian churches in Andover, North Andover, Lawrence, and Methuen. We will be collecting diapers (all sizes), disposable training pants (such as Pull-ups), and small children's underwear (up to size 6). These items are distributed by Communities Together to families through local organizations such as Neighbors in Need, Lazarus House, the Women's Resource Center, and Emmaus House.

Since we are collecting for the UMCOR Health Kits during the first part of Lent, we will start the diaper and underwear collection on Sunday, March 22 and continue through Easter Sunday, April 5. However, feel free to bring these items in at any time. We also understand that not everyone can participate in all of the collections that we are doing. Please give what you can to the cause or collection that is most meaningful to you.



"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."
