Issue No. 7
Sunday Worship

This week we'll hear from a book we don't commonly read: Sirach. In the text, the author reminds us that God sets before all the "ways of life and death." Yes, that is literal. We know that. But what might it mean figuratively, too? As always, we'll sing, pray and be church together. Pastor Alex preaching. Childcare available.
Faith Forum
8:45am in the church library

We will continue our discussion of racism using the book White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo. This week we'll discuss chapters 9 and 12. Led by Mary Pritchard. Come and be warmed by this community of faithful seekers. Child care available.
Newcomer Gatherings
Sun., Feb. 23rd & March 1st at 11:15am in the SC Library
South Church may be over 300 years old, but our thinking isn’t. We believe that loving God with all your heart doesn’t mean you can’t use all of your head, too. If you agree, we’d love to see more of you. Questions? Contact Alex.
Summer Camp Preview
Sun., Feb. 23rd at 11:15am in the Chapel

Getting ready for summer yet? There are many wonderful ways to engage in your faith! Representatives from local UCC camps will share what makes their programs so special. Folks from Silver Lake in CT and Star Island in NH as well as VBS and SOS here at South Church and more will be in attendance!

South Church Community Cabaret
Sun., Mar. 1st from 3:00-5:00pm in Fellowship Hall

The youth groups are holding an event for the entire congregation called “South Church Community Cabaret: A Celebration of Faith, Friendship and Mission Trip Magic.” This is a family-friendly variety show event that we hope people of all ages – from age one to one hundred – will feel welcome to attend!
All Out for Habitat!
Fri., Mar. 6th at Orangetheory

Working out while raising money? Yes! You can raise money for affordable housing in Andover just by working out. Orangetheory North Reading (6:30pm) or Orangetheory Danvers (5:45pm) will host a fun 60 minute class to support the first ever Andover Habitat for Humanity build. Details and registration here.
Thank you... the Andover Cultural Council, the Massachusetts Cultural Council and our legislators for their continued support of the arts! We are happy to share that South Church received a grant to support our Halloween Organ and Light Show! Due to an 18 month eligibility window, we were able to apply for the October 2019 program.
Green Bee is buzzed about this!

A program at Nunan's Garden Center in Georgetown will have a speaker on Feb. 18th talking about native plants to support native insects, especially bees! This Annual Spring Garden Forum sounds like fun and is a great way to look ahead to spring. Click here for details.
