Open the Door of Your Heart

It’s December and preparations for Christmas are underway. Unfortunately, for some, this is a period of great stress, inadequate sleep, and too much busyness. Is this what Advent is all about?

CSA's 31st Annual-Adopt-an-Angel Project

CSA’s Adopt-An-Angel Project is underway for the 31st  consecutive year!  Please help spread the Christmas Spirit by picking up an Angel or food slip that will be on the Christmas tree in the Social Hall. (Angels will be put on the tree as soon as received.) Bring your gift or food basket to church on Sunday, Dec. 16th when the gifts will be sorted and packed right after church. For more information, contact a member of the Outreach 

 

Poinsettia Orders

Poinsettias are now available for order.  This year we have reserved two colors.  You may pick red or white.  They will be decorating the Sanctuary on Sunday, December 23rd through the Christmas Eve service.

If you would like to purchase poinsettias, please contact the church office.  Forms for ordering will also be in the bulletins on Sunday.  Cost is $9.50 each for red or white. 

Deadline for ordering is Monday, December 17th.

 

 

CSA's youth and young adults are conspiring to celebrate a more meaningful Christmas. Youth and young adults are invited to participate in a 4-week Advent discussion series (including lunch!) during each of the four Sundays in Advent immediately following worship. The discussions are based on The Advent Conspiracy and our goal is to approach Christmas with intention as we Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More, and Love All.  

 

About Concord-St. Andrews UMC

 

The Church

A Little Bit About Us: 

Concord Methodist Church was formed in 1819, making it one of the oldest Methodist churches in Montgomery County, MD. St. Andrew's Methodist Church formed in 1956 to serve a growing suburban population. The two churches merged in 1976 to become Concord-St. Andrew's United Methodist Church and the 35th anniversary was celebrated in October 2011. Learn more about us here.

Whether you are visiting or searching for a church home, you are always welcome to worship with us. Our address is 5910 Goldsboro Rd., Bethesda, MD 20817.

Worship lifts our spirirts and strengthens our relationships with God. It also stirs our imaginations, fills us with wonder, and offers us fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Come as you are! Be our guest! Experience the love of God and Christian community.

Join us for worship at 10:00 am Sundays and fellowship immediately following the service.
