WORSHIP WITH US ONLINE

Our services and activities are currently online-only due to the coronavirus pandemic. For an overview of AUMC’s response to Covid-19, visit annandalechurch.com/cvresponse.

On April 26 we began a new sermon series that, over the spring and summer, will take us through the Apostle Peter’s first epistle. The series is called “Election Season” because 1 Peter is ground zero for what’s known in the Christian tradition as the “Doctrine of Election.” Election refers both to God’s decision to be God for us in Jesus Christ and God’s choosing of us, the Church, as his particular, peculiar people. Peter wrote to believers experiencing hardship, suffering, and persecution so it’s a letter that uniquely marries dense theological concepts with the struggles of everyday life.

Our service will stream live at 11 a.m. on Sundays at https://www.facebook.com/annandaleumc/

Online Worship for All Ages

Although we’ve suspended activities in person because of the outbreak, Meredith has created an online Children’s Corner with Bible-based games, arts and crafts projects, educational resources, and more. In lieu of pre-k through Kindergarten Sunday school, there will also be a weekly prerecorded video with a story/message posted to our Facebook page, with a link available at our Children’s Corner. The prerecorded videos are for everyone but especially geared toward families with children pre-k-kindergarten, and will be emailed to parents with children in this age group. Contact Meredith for a transcript. We will have “Sunday school” online where children ages 1st grade-5th grade will be able to interact and participate via a secure zoom connection. For safety and security reasons, this link will not be posted to Facebook but rather sent directly to the parents; contact Meredith at mbond@annandale-umc.org if you have not been added to the mailing list.
