Pastor Dana's Welcome

Our traditional tall, white steepled church stands as a beacon in Andover, yet we connect with visitors and members from across the Merrimack River Valley and beyond. We are a diverse congregation with a rich mix of young and old, gay and straight, single and partnered, believer-since-birth and spiritual-but-not-religious. If you’re wondering what to do next, worship with us on a Sunday. Sit in our pews or watch our worship service on YouTube and experience the diverse mix of people, the vibrant music, the inspiring preaching, and the wide array of activities. And if it feels like the right spiritual home for you, or if you have questions and want to learn more, don’t hesitate to be in touch. God’s peace on your search for a church home, we’d love to see you here, Dana
