Community Outreach

The Andover Food Pantry & Other Mission Work

Our congregation is committed to being a resource for our community

One of our greatest assets as a church community is our ability to come together to help those in need. It's the Christian way and we embrace it eagerly. In fact, part of our stated mission for 2015 was to build on our food ministry program and our history of being a community church open to everyone. We've approached the food ministry with two programs - The Andover Food Pantry (every Monday from 5-7pm) and our partnership with to provide the Mobile Foodshare (every other Wednesday from 9-9:30am).
