Welcome to our website! We're so glad you’re considering joining us for Worship on Sunday.
If you don't currently have a church home we invite you to check us out this Sunday at 10:00. Our worship style is fairly traditional with a “come as you are” casual feel. We aren’t perfect but we do extend God’s grace for all. People who have been far from God and the church for a long time (or always) are finding HFUMC to be a place of love and acceptance, and we invite you to grow in a relationship with God through Jesus Christ here.

Matthew 14:13-21 NRSV
Feeding the Five Thousand
13 Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a deserted place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns. 14 When he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them and cured their sick. 15 When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a deserted place, and the hour is now late; send the crowds away so that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” 16 Jesus said to them, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.” 17 They replied, “We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish.” 18 And he said, “Bring them here to me.” 19 Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish,
he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 20 And all ate
and were filled; and they took up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full. 21 And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
