Ministry Programs

First UMC has a variety of options for you to connect with in ministry—some are more formal groups, others more informal.


Music ministry

The music ministry at First UMC plays music from multiple genres: traditional hymnody, global song, contemporary worship music, and more. Do you sing? Play an instrument? Please come and share your gifts with us. The choir rehearses every Thursday evening at 7pm in the Choir Room (Rm. 403 on Level 4). If you want to share your instrumental talents with us, please contact our music director, Jesse Reyna.


Christian Education

The purpose of Christian Education at First United Methodist Church of North Andover is to provide an opportunity to: experience the transforming love of God as shown through the life and teachings of Jesus; learn within an environment of trust and mutual respect where tradition, experience, scripture and reason are share; challenge our beliefs openly and honestly; grow in our faith; and decide how to live faithfully.


"connect" dinners

Once every few months, new visitors and attenders will be invited to the pastor's home for a meal. This is a great time to meet the pastor, key leaders of the church, other new faces, and to learn more about the mission and ministries of First UMC. Interested in the next offering? RSVP here.
