Categories: Headlines

 1. Join Us Tonight

Growing Together Horizontal_CMYKGrowing Together Campaign Presentation and Q&A at 6:30pm

Our campaign is called Growing Together – Generation to Generation because every generation–from the youngest to the oldest–is important to God and important to us. We want to make sure that everyone in our church family is a part of this exciting time here at HMUMC, so we’ve planned a special gathering tonight at 6:30pm in the Sanctuary where you can learn more about the details surrounding the project, hear about ways you can support it, and ask any questions you may have.



2. THIS SUNDAY – Coming Together Sunday

GT Commitment Sunday GraphicThis Sunday may be the most significant week in the history of Hamilton Mill UMC. God has set before us an amazing opportunity: an opportunity to expand our worship capacity and to invite new people into the life of faith. In addition, we will create a new space for the Music Ministry, and renovate existing space for our growing and spiritually centered Student Ministry. Now is the time to “come together” to see God’s plan unfold. You are needed. Please prayerfully consider what God is calling you to give toward our Growing Together – Generation to Generation campaign. Beginning this Sunday, we will be inviting everyone to bring their three year pledge cards forward. You may also, make a pledge online  using the link button below. Let’s come together and make this the most celebrated day in the history of Hamilton Mill UMC!
