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.

Luke 4:14-21 NRSV
The Beginning of the Galilean Ministry
14 Then Jesus, filled with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee, and a report about him spread through all the surrounding country. 15 He began to teach in their synagogues and was praised by everyone.
The Rejection of Jesus at Nazareth
16 When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, 17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written:
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me to
bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to
the captives and recovery of sight
to the blind, to let the oppressed go free,
19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
20 And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. 21 Then he began to say to them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”
