Fall Small Group Sign-Ups Coming Soon

There are many opportunities to develop deep rooted relationships with God and each other and Small Groups are a good way to develop those relationships!

Pre School 2018-19 School Year

HFUMC Pre School will start on Monday, August 6th for the 3 and 4 year olds

while the 2 year olds will start on Tuesday, August 7th.

Please keep the teachers and students in your prayers as we prepare to have an exciting school year!

There are many ways to support the Pre School including prayers and financial support.

You can give to the Cheryl Haler Memorial Fund to help scholarship those who cannot afford this experience.

Please make your check to the church and designate it for the Cheryl Haler Memorial Fund in the “For” part of your check.

You can also choose to sponsor a child each month for $150.00.

We are asking for donations in the purchase of new playground equipment for the children.

Although we can get a grant for this equipment, we will need more than what we can get in the grant.

You can make a check to the church (designate the “for” section for the Playground) or you may place spare change in any jars placed around the church.

Thank you for your continued support of this ministry. We are looking forward to a great school year!

24 pack Crayola Crayons (Please only purchase 24 pack Crayola’s)

The Safety Committee

In order for our volunteers in each team to serve only 6-7 times a year,

we need double our volunteers.

Please prayerfully consider joining our team so we can provide a safe place to worship.

Safety is everyone’s business!


College Students are heading back to school

Please send the mailing address of any college students or

recent High School grads that are going to tech schools and staying at home

Please write their names and mailing addresses on a card

and place it in the offering plate so that prayer cards and other groups can keep in touch as they progress in their next step of life.

A lot of new families have joined since our last pictorial directory in our 3 services.

Additional portraits may be purchased at the time of your session and will be back in time for the Holidays.
