Due to Covid-19 we have many options for sharing worship together and with physical distancing.
1) Our prerecorded video and print worship experiences are still reaching many new people. As in the past, we encourage you to take part in our online worship by going to www.vimeo.com/revwindsurfer and choosing which Sunday worship you would like to watch.
2)- In person worship in our building has reached about half of our normal attendance. This is what we expected. We have some restrictions, such as physical distancing, no singing, and now masks are required in public places. Your safety is our priority.
3)- We also offer a drive in worship experience. Simply park within a block of the church building, tune your FM radio to 88.7, and enjoy the service live. You may be able to greet people as they leave the building after worship.
4)- We also have the live service streaming on Facebook Live. Please search for the worship service on either Paul Baker’s personal page, or Montrose or Annandale UMCs Facebook page. You do not need a Facebook account to watch Facebook Live. The service will also be saved on Facebook so you can watch it later if need be.
We are also offering a Monday evening online Bible Study Group via Zoom. If you are on our email list, you will receive an email invitation for that group on Sunday each week. If you don’t receive an invitation, please call the Annandale church office (320-274-5127) and let us know your email address. Thank you.
The Call of Paul
He wrote about half of the New Testament, yet none of the books of the Bible bear his name. Join us as we seek to get to know the man behind many of the teachings of the church. He was a man of his times, and some of his writings reflect the values of those times, and some of his values are universal for all times.

Friends, Even the Dogs get the Scraps! The unnamed woman said this to Jesus, and Jesus responded by healing her daughter. Everybody else thought of her as just a foreigner, but Jesus saw a woman of faith. What can we learn from this conversation for today’s world?

Open our Ears "Hear all the People"
We shared our first Drive-in Worship at Annandale and Montrose United Methodist this last Sunday, June 14th.
It was well attended, especially considering the heat and the wind. In fact it was so windy that a big gust hit us at the Montrose service and blew the speaker stand, the microphone stand, and the music stand right into the pavement!
We learned one thing, as you can tell from the photo, even at a drive-in service people don’t like to sit in the front pew!
June 14, 2020 - Suffering produces endurance, character, and hope, all through the power of God's love.
Open our Eyes "Go Therefore"
Just stick with what Jesus said about love. Love God, Love Neighbor, and by the way, Love your Enemies too.
God said it, I believe it, that settles it. (Hint - it isn't that easy.)
