               N.O.W. MINISTRIES

N.O.W.  =  Nurture, Outreach and Worship

is how we live into our calling  to be the hands and the feet of Christ in our community and our world.

HUMC members see ourselves as servants and an extension of Jesus's ministry of compassion, love, and justice.

We have been called to serve and to make a difference in our community and in our world.

We are called to be the hands, feet and the voice of Christ in our community and in our world.....


Nurturing ministries focus on the inward ministries of the church with an emphasis on Worship,  Christian Formation and Membership Care.
We seek to help persons grow in their relationship with Christ and with our sisters and brothers as we seek to be faithful disciples for the transformation of the world.

United Methodist Men

The ministry of men in the local church is defined as a core group of men, partnering with their pastor, to invite and initiate spiritual growth opportunities for all men of the church.

Everyone has different gifts, graces and areas of interest. Therefore, opportunities for participation would include diverse ministries of the church, such as prayer groups, missions, Bible studies, retreats, workshops/seminars, small groups in the Wesleyan tradition, leading and participating on committees, teaching Sunday school classes, youth ministries, scouting, mentoring and assisting in leading worship service.

The focus is not inward, concentrating only on those who attend a set meeting, but outward to all men, assisting them to engage the process of spiritual growth. Our mission is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others. Our goal is to empower the ministry of Jesus Christ through men within the congregations of the UMC.

HUMC  Men meet the first Sunday morning of every 3rd month at 8:00 a.m. for a light breakfast, devotion and any business that needs to take place.

HUMC  Men are known for their delicious and much sought after peanuts they make during the year.
