You are Always Welcome at Andrew Chapel UMC

We welcome all people to our worship services. Our welcome comes from the understanding we have when we celebrate Communion together. At Andrew Chapel United Methodist Church, we celebrate an open Communion Table, which means everyone is welcome to receive. Our Communion Liturgy begins with an invitation that says,  “Christ our Lord invites...” It is not the pastor or anyone else who makes the invitation – it is the Lord, who accepts everyone to join him in the feast of love and forgiveness. Therefore, you are welcome here, and you are invited to be in community with us and all people who long to have a deep and meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ.
Please explore our website to learn more about the life and ministry of our church.
