St. Andrew United Methodist Church of Marietta invites everyone in our area to join us in celebrating the birth of Jesus on Christmas Eve. We will hold services on Christmas Eve at 5 p.m. and again at 7:30 p.m.
“We invite anyone and everyone who doesn’t have a church home to join us as we celebrate the joyful occasion of Jesus’s birth,” said Rev. Mack Riley, senior pastor at St. Andrew United Methodist Church. “We pride ourselves on being a warm, welcoming church family and we want to embrace all of those who don’t want to be alone on these most joyous of days."
“At any time of year, you will receive a warm welcome at St. Andrew,” said Rev. Angie Crummie, associate pastor. We invite anyone looking for a place to worship the newborn King to join us for one of these services.”
St. Andrew will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2012. Founded in April 1962 by a small group of dedicated Methodists who originally met at Blackwell School, St. Andrew United Methodist Church takes pride in being a family of caring, nurturing followers of Jesus Christ who welcome all those seeking to know and grow in God’s service.
Church founders chose the name St. Andrew because the apostle Andrew is considered a “do-er,” doing the work of the Lord. The first sanctuary, completed in 1964, is now our Community Room. Today, our church family has grown to include more than 350 families dedicated to doing the work of the Lord. Church members accomplish this through various ministries in which we hope all members of our congregation will become involved. These ministries include Thanksgiving and Christmas food drives, wellness ministries, the Appalachia Service Project, the Andrew Christian School in Haiti, and ministries for men, women, children, youth, and seniors.
