Join us on February 8th from 6:30 to 7:30 pm for an exclusive opportunity to explore our classrooms and meet our dedicated teachers! Our classes cater to children aged 2-5, fostering a nurturing environment for their early learning journey.

As a special benefit for Hamburg United Methodist Church (HUMC) members, we are offering a tuition discount. It's our way of expressing appreciation for the church community's support.

Mark your calendars for in-house registration, which begins on February 5th and is conducted online. This priority registration period is open to church members, alumni, and currently enrolled families.

Human Relations Day

Sunday, January 14, 2024

There are many today who are living in the margins of society, those struggling to survive. Over and over Jesus served people like this. To continue the ministry of Jesus, Human Relations Day calls all of us to participate in helping all God’s children to realize their potential through faith-based volunteer programs, community developers, and programs that work with at-risk teens.

Offering envelopes are available at the entrance to the sanctuary and at the Welcome

Center. Give your gift any time during January or February with your personal check or by electronic giving designating an amount for Human Relations Day



January Food Collection for Spark's Food Cupboard

Dear Church Members,

Throughout January, Spark's Food Cupboard will collect essential food items to support the Hamburg community. Your contributions make a significant impact on those who rely on this assistance.

Items to Purchase:

  • Canned fruit (any type, preferably flip-top cans)

A designated basket labeled "SPARKS" will be placed in the Gathering Space for your convenience. Kindly place your donated food items in this basket and refrain from placing them directly in the cupboard outside Sparks. This arrangement will help manage the food inventory.

Your generosity and support are deeply appreciated. Let's come together to make a difference!

Thank you, Wendy and Dave Spaulding



The Church office is glad to announce that services going forward will be streamed via YouTube Live, in addition to the current Facebook Live services. You can access the Youtube live stream on our Youtube Channel, or directly on our church website homepage.

The voice of God calls to us! Are you listening?

Speak, Lord, your servants are listening.

The hands of God beckon us! Are you paying attention?

Show us, Lord, your servants are paying attention.

The love of God asks us—are you ready to follow?

Guide us, Lord, and we, your servants, will follow.

Come, let us worship the God whose tenacious love never stops calling and beckoning and asking us to follow.

Thanks be to God! Amen.

OPENING MUSIC: “Be Thou My Vision” #451 UMH

OPENING PRAYER: Christ, our peace:

 we want to hear your call;

 we experience your ministry

 through the lives of peacemakers and justice seekers. 

Guide us as we follow the path of shalom.

 We thank you 

for the cloud of witnesses

 who have known your presence

 in their struggles every step of the way to peace. 

Your promise is sure that peace is possible

 when we follow in the way you lead. Amen.

DOXOLOGY “Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow” #94 UMH


The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them up to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.

...And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven

we praise your name and join their unending hymn:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,

Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

...And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ,

we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving

as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ's offering for us,

as we proclaim the mystery of faith.

Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.

...Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church,

all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father (God ), now and for ever.





CLOSING HYMN: “Here I am Lord” #593 UMH
