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.

SENECA HYMN SINGERS: Jerusalem & Rev. Owl’s Song
Spirit of the living God, visit us again, on this day of Pentecost. Come, Holy Spirit. Like a rushing wind that sweeps away all barriers, Come, Holy Spirit. Like tongues of fire that set our hearts aflame, Come, Holy Spirit. With speech that unites the Babel of our tongues, Come, Holy Spirit. With love that overlaps the boundaries of race and nation, Come, Holy Spirit. With power from above to make our weakness strong, Come, Holy Spirit.
