Sunday Morning Choir

It’s time for the choir to begin for the fall. Our first Sunday will be September 10th. Come on upstairs at 9:00 a.m. to rehearse for Sunday Services. (On Sept. 10th we will lead the congregation in the hymns, and we will have an anthem for the following Sunday.) Everyone is welcome, feel free to try it for a Sunday or two. We are friendly and welcome everyone.



Have you ever wished that you could play an instrument? If so, the HUMC handbell choir may be the perfect place for you! If you have two hands, we will start you out with two bells and help you figure out where those two bells need to play. We are a group that loves laughing, making music, and spending Tuesday nights together – and we have plenty of space for you!

The handbell choir will have their first rehearsal of the season on Tuesday, October 17th, from 7:00 – 8:00. You are very welcome to drop in and try it. We would love to show you how well you will fit into the bell choir.

Please see Jeannine with any questions or for information.



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.



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.

CALL TO WORSHIP Rend your hearts and not your clothing. Return to the Lord, Your God, For he is gracious, and merciful,

slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, and relents from punishing.

OPENING HYMN: “And Are We Yet Alive” #553 UMH

OPENING PRAYER God of all nations, we praise you that in Christ the barriers that have separated humanity are torn down. Yet we confess our slowness to open our hearts and minds to those of other lands, tongues, and races. Deliver us from the sins and fear and prejudice, that we may move toward the day when all are truly on in Jesus Christ. Amen
