To generously share God's love with everyone we meet

Upcoming Events

 Family Night – 2nd Wednesdays
Nov. 14th will be our next family night. Join us @ 6:30 p.m. for an evening meal, a short worship time, some fun, and planning for a local mission trip (maybe Feed my Starving Children), and also to look at the possibility of a mission trip this coming summer. 
Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity
In a culture where having “enough” seems to have become a never-ending pursuit, Jesus’ parable remains incredibly relevant. Many of us are chasing the American dream in ways that lead to stress, anxiety, and fear—thorns that can rob us of the ability to enjoy the abundant lives of purpose that God intended for us. All of us have struggled with these issues at one time or another. This is why, Nov. 11 – Nov. 25, we will be having a churchwide study and worship emphasis called Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity. During this time we will explore what the Bible teaches us about financial management through worship and small group study. (Small group study opportunity will be Monday nights at 6:00 PM. This is a video study, but please let the office know if you would like to purchase a book as well.)
The Annual Holiday Stop ‘N Shop will be held in the Fellowship Hall on Saturday, November 17 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. There will be a variety of crafts, vendors, and baked sale items. Come in and find gifts for those hard to shop for people on your list! All shoppers can enter a Grand Prize drawing! Need not be present to win.
Thanksgiving Community Dinner, Thursday, November 22, 2018
Please join us for our community Thanksgiving Dinner with all the trimmings on Thursday, November 22 @ 12:00 noon. This is a free dinner and everyone is welcome! For a ride or meals delivered to your home, please call the church office.  


  • On Sunday, October 14 from 3:00 to 4:00 pm, Annandale United Methodist Church will host a concert featuring music from the Renaissance period as presented by Phillip Rukavina on the lute and Sarah Jackson as soprano soloist.  This pair, who are highly acclaimed performers of Early Music, will take the audience to places of haunting beauty and delight. A free will offering will be collected at the door.  There will be a coffee fellowship following. Call the church office with any questions. – Linda Elfstrand

Family Night – 2nd Wednesdays

Wednesday October 10th at 6:30 we will meet for our 2nd Family Night of this School Year.  It has been great to meet your families, and I am looking forward to meeting more of you this month.
We will share a light meal, some fun time, and  a short Bible lesson for all.  Bring one of your favorite jokes to share.   Here is one of pastor’s favorites.  “How do you make a Kleenex dance? You put a little boogie in it.”
We would also like to plan fun activities and disciple-like activities such as Feed My Starving Children, Project Hope, and possible AUMC member assistance, such as raking for the elderly, etc. And finally, bring your calendars to the October Family Night so we can find a date for the youth to participate in the entire worship service. 
We need someone to volunteer to host the meal portion this month.  Please call or email the church office if you are able to host.    – Pastor Paul and Laurie Dick
