God calls us to open the door, make room at the table, and create spaces
to foster lasting relationships with Jesus Christ.
This Sunday, March 1
"Led by the Spirit into the Wilderness" by Paul B. Thompson
Matthew 4:1-11

This Sunday is Communion Sunday.
Would you or your child be interested in serving Communion for one of our services? Please contact Rhonda Hawkins directly at 704-989-7142 or

It's a great way to serve the church!
Bring your sticks, please!
Our Worship Arts team is preparing a decoration to represent the spirit of the Lenten season. Please bring a stick from your yard this Sunday and place it in the basket by the cross in the foyer. Sticks are not easy to work with - they are brittle, dry, unyielding, stubborn, and rigid - prone to breaking under the slightest pressure. As we considered these sticks as a metaphor for our Lenten contemplation, the sticks become symbols for our struggles, our failures, our shortcomings, our pain. But when we bring them to the cross, Christ takes our sins, our burdens and our suffering; and that makes all the difference. 
Many thanks to everyone who attended Bingo Night and for contributing to the event's success!

It was another memorable evening spent together at HUMC.

We would also like to express our gratitude to Club 3:16 for serving 150 people pizza!!!
