Thanksgiving Food Collection

Each year our church collects food for Thanksgiving meals to be donated to Neighbors in Need, the local food bank which operates seven food pantries throughout the neighborhoods of Lawrence and Methuen. We'll be collecting food through Sunday, November 13th. Below is a list of suggested items to donate. You may also make a monetary donation by placing a contribution in the offering plate and marking it "Neighbors in Need." We encourage you to bring the food to the front of the sanctuary and place it on and around the altar table.


Stuffing Mix, Cranberry Sauce or Cranberries, Gravy, Canned Broth, Instant Potatoes, Canned Vegetables, Nuts, Canned Pie fillings, Pie Crust Mix, Evaporated Milk, Cake Mix & Frosting.

Fresh produce (not requiring refrigeration) must be brought in on November 13th:

Potatoes, Squash, Broccoli, Beans, Carrots, Onions, Celery, and Apples.

Neighbors in Need is also seeking volunteers to help bag 400 meals/bags for Thanksgiving on Saturday November 19th from 9 am until 12 noon at their warehouse in Andover. A team from our church is planning on heading there to assist. If you are
interested in attending, please see or contact Susan Lewis for more information

"The members of First United Methodist Church of North Andover, MA are committed to living out our faith by practicing love, embodying hope and  doing justice.  We believe this part of our mission statement calls us to  embrace Jesus' message of grace, love and reconciliation for all people. Our  welcome knows no boundaries of age, gender, race, ethnic origin, economic  reality, family status, sexual orientation, diverse ability, faith history or social standing.

We proclaim this statement of welcome to all who have known  the pain of exclusion and discrimination within the church. At the same time, we  recognize that there are differences among us.  We do not seek to erase our  differences and believe that we can love alike even though we may not think  alike.   We celebrate our diversity and recognize the sacred worth and  dignity of all people.  We welcome everyone in our journey together toward  greater love, understanding and mutual respect.

We are a Reconciling Congregation committed to the full  inclusion of all people in the life, mission and ministry of our church .  We pledge ourselves to love and support one another and to be a safe sanctuary  for everyone.  We will work actively to change general church policies and  practices to allow the full participation of lesbian, gay,  bisexual, transgender and questioning people, in the ministry and life of the  global  United Methodist Church."
