Click here or on the picture above to watch a video from Missions Committee member Brad Todd about this year’s Lenten Mission Project, which lets everyone in the congregation be invested in the work of the church. Our goal this year is to raise $50,500 to support our work at the Mission Center, ACCA, and other organizations that provide important support to the community. Where our treasure is, there our heart will be also. Contribute to the Lenten Mission Project at annandalechurch.com/giving.

Beginning Sunday, May 23, we will have one worship service at 10:30 a.m. It will include live singing, a sermon, communion, and other familiar parts of the order of worship. The worship service will be live-streamed on Facebook and the website. We will no longer post a prerecorded worship service at 8:30 a.m. We will also be implementing new COVID protocol based on recommendations from the bishop and the Virginia Conference:

  • Everyone two years and older must wear a mask at all times.
  • Registration will no longer be required.
  • The congregation will be socially distanced. Please follow the usher’s directions for seating. Please keep distance before and after the service. We will not yet have a coffee hours.
  • Masks may be removed briefly to consume communion.

We very much look forward to regathering for worship and we hope you will join us on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. beginning May 23. If you aren’t yet ready to return to worship, or of course if you don’t feel well, please join us for the live-stream. We will continue this schedule through the summer, introducing new elements as conditions allow, and consider an appropriate schedule moving forward as summer ends.

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 our Director of Worship, Pat Vaughn, at pvaughn@annandale-umc.org.
