Andrew Ministry at West End UMC

Sharing the Loving Light of Christ with Guests and New Members

In the Gospel of John, Andrew is portrayed as a disciple of John the Baptist who, upon seeing Jesus, decides to follow him.  Andrew then goes and finds his brother, Simon Peter, and says to him, “We have found the Messiah.”  Then he leads Simon Peter to Jesus.  

In the spirit of the Apostle Andrew, we are launching an exciting new ministry of hospitality and connection for guests and new members of West End.  Each week, teams of Andrew Ministers will help guests and new members feel welcome while they are here, so that they might experience the love and grace of God as we worship, learn, and serve together.  To this end, Andrew Ministers will serve as Greeters, help guests find their way around our building on Sunday mornings, and connect guests and new members with opportunities for spiritual growth, service, care, and community.  If you have the gift of hospitality and want to share the Loving Light of Christ with others, contact Erin Racine at or 615.321.8500 for more information.
