Imagine No Malaria

Current Mission and Outreach Activity

Lenten Diaper & Underwear Drive for Communities Together
First United Methodist Church will once again be a part of the annual
Lenten Diaper and Underwear Drive in support of Communities
Together. Starting on Sunday, March 9 and continuing until Easter
Sunday, April 20, we will be collecting diapers (all sizes), training
pants (such as Pull-ups) and small children's underwear (up to size 6).
The items collected are distributed by Communities Together to local
families through agencies such as Neighbors in Need, Lazarus House,
the Women's Resource Center, and Emmaus House. Our church will
also have a Saturday drop-off day for the public to donate diapers
and underwear. That date will be in the April Beacon.

Imagine No Malaria
The New England Conference of the United Methodist Church has set a goal of saving 150,000 lives in Africa by raising $1.5 million toward the effort to eliminate malaria. Each church in our conference has been asked to hold at least one event per year in support of the Imagine No Malaria campaign. We have also been asked to set a goal of how many lives we are going to save. The Mission and Outreach Committee proposed a goal of saving 50 lives by raising $500 for Imagine No Malaria during 2014.



"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."
