Coronavirus cancellations: Because of the coronavirus pandemic, all worship services, Sunday school classes and other Sunday group meetings are currently online-only. Our current plan is to begin a combined in person/livestreamed worship service on Sunday, 9/13, at 10 a.m. Check our coronavirus response page to learn more about how we are handling this crisis. Sunday services are posted weekly on our Facebook page.

New volunteer time slots at the Mission Center on Thursdays: We assemble bags of food for distribution to about 200 families each week at the Mission Center at 7901 Heritage Drive. We now have three volunteer time slots available: 1–3 p.m. to crate eggs (3 volunteers needed); 3–5 p.m. to package bread, produce and grocery bags (12 volunteers needed); and 5–6:30 p.m. to finish bagging and distribute the food (6 volunteers needed). Volunteers are required to wear masks and socially distance themselves. You must register on SignUpGenius by noon on the Thursday you wish to serve. Walk-ins are not allowed. Please familiarize yourself with our COVID-19 health precautions at this link. For more information, contact Betsy Clevenger at etclevenger@verizon.net or Bill Iwig at bethesda.duo@verizon.net.

ACCA furniture ministry resumes on a limited basis: ACCA delivers used furniture to families in need from the warehouse next to the Little White Church. If you are interested in being on the AUMC furniture team, contact Ted Torsch at torsch@verizon.net. Volunteers must wear masks and gloves, and heavy lifting is required.

Volunteers needed to help with our A/V needs: We’ve ordered new video cameras to improve our online worship experience. When the new equipment arrives, we’ll have opportunities for volunteers to learn how to use the cameras and help us record the services. This is a chance to learn about the latest technology and help your church! Contact Pat Vaughn, at pvaughn@annandale-umc.org.
