Anna United Methodist Church has been worshiping in Anna since at least 1890. Our present classic white clapboard Sanctuary, located at 100 W. 2nd Street in Anna, was built in the 1930s and refurbished in 2016.
After a period of dedicated prayer at the beginning of 2018, Anna UMC decided to start a new contemporary congregation - The Orchard - and to maintain its current traditional Worship service at 11:00 AM.
The Orchard started worshiping on August 19th. It is designed to be a completely new congregation within one church.
Unlike most new congregations, The Orchard starts with a building, ministers, and financial security.
Like most new congregations, The Orchard will be free to determine its own path and create authentic worship without being bound by tradition.
Some ministries will be shared by the both congregations, including Wednesday night programming for children, Youth, and adults. In other areas, separate ministries will be maintained and developed to serve the unique needs of each worshiping community.
