Andover Alliance Safe Place Plan
Andover Alliance Church has adopted a Safe Place Plan.
The complete plan is available for members to view on the Forms and Documents page located under the Info tab.
A brief overview of the plan (will be) available by clicking on the PDF file here.
Our Safe Place Plan document is available
Although we are a small church, we want to do everything we can to provide a safe, secure, and healthy environment for all that attend Andover Alliance. A copy of our Safe Place Plan is available, as well as copies of many of the forms and guidelines. Contact one of the Elders if you would like more information.
The Governing Board has formed a Vision Committee to look at future planning. The Governing Board changed the name to the Planning Committee with more emphasis on current events planning. The Committee will prayerfully seek God's direction for our church in the area of ministry, outreach, and physical needs. If you have any thoughts to share, contact Pastor Barner or Neil Brewster, chairman of the committee. The long range planning has been turned over to the Elders.

2015 - Sunday afternoon, August 23rd was a beautiful warm sunny day. Following morning worship service, the church family gathered at Kanakadea Park for a potluck picnic and a baptismal service.
