HUMC is involved in outreach locally, nationally, and internationally.
Local Outreach: Interfaith Food Pantry; preparing Thanksgiving food baskets for needy elderly; providing Christmas gifts to needy children; House of Grace, which provides help to women and children who are victims of domestic violence; Vacation Bible School outreach to local children; providing backpacks with school supplies to needy children; supporting our local retirement community, Wesley Meadows; helping with needs of Camp Lake Stephens; supporting a Hispanic United Methodist Church as it gets started; supporting a new multi-cultural, United Methodist Church as it gets started; supporting Habitat for Humanity; and assisting with many other needs as they arise.
National Outreach: Disaster Response to help those who have experienced natural disasters; providing lodging and meals at our church for mission groups needing a place to stay as they travel, (for groups on their way to and from Hurricane Katrina clean-up and re-building); providing lodging and meals for those who have been displaced during times of disaster; response to other needs as they arise. We also take mission trips in the U.S. to places like UMCOR headquarters in LA. UMCOR is the disaster response ministry of the United Methodist Church.
World Outreach: HUMC has played a big role in mission trips to Russia, helping with an orphanage and helping build a church in Latnaya, Russia; to Honduras to build clean water as well as providing for other needs; and to Puerto Rico where our Youth helped minister to others in need. We support Stop Hunger Now, an organization dedicated to ending hunger in our lifetime (we purchase and pack 20,000 meals annually); Nothing but Nets to prevent malaria, a leading cause of death in children in Africa; Samaritans Purse, including providing shoeboxes for needy children world-wide at Christmas; the Heiffer Project, and the Advance, the United Methodist support of numerous world-wide projects that help those in need; and we are support Haiti through generous donations and providing health kits.
We would love to hear from you and help you plug into some of our ways of serving others and therefore serving God!
