The entire HUMC congregation is invited on a trip to the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center and Maid of the Mist, planned by Lincoln Memorial UMC Senior Saints. It will take place on Tuesday, June 13th, from 10 am - 5 pm. The cost is $65.
As HUMC and LMUMC continue to strive to grow a relationship with each other, this is a unique opportunity to get to know folks personally, learn about the local history of the underground railroad and how it has impacted the Black community, and enjoy the beauty and thrill of a ride on the Maid of the Mist.
Zoom is now available in both the Parlor and Library to add video conferencing to in-person meetings. No additional equipment is needed!
This is also a great option for attending training and webinars as a group.
Zoom is available for booking through the Church office when reserving the Library or Parlor.
If you need training, Please contact the church office to schedule.
Join us for Book Club.
We meet in the church library on the 4th Monday of the month at 10:30 am.
The following are the upcoming book selections.
May - Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens; June - Horse by Geraldine Brooks;
July - The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave.
Our little pantry at Sparks of Hope is nearly empty, and our shelves are bare. Members of our recovery community rely on your generosity to see them through the hard times. Please drop off nonperishable groceries when Sparks is open, or leave them inside the pantry.
PROGRESS UPDATE ON THE NEW STAINED GLASS WINDOWS

OPENING HYMN: “To God be the Glory” #98 UMH
OPENING PRAYER Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
SCRIPTURE: Psalm 150 Read by: Caroline Schneggenburger 1 Corinthians 14:1-3, 26, 39-40
