Q: Must I be a church member to receive Holy Communion?

A:  United Methodists believe that Jesus invites everyone to his table.  You do not have to be a member of this church, a United Methodist, or even a baptized Christian to receive communion here. The only prerequisite is a willingness to accept the invitation to join others who desire to have their lives changed by Jesus Christ and his sacrificial self-giving. If you are seeking a renewed relationship of love with God and your neighbor you are welcome at the table.

Q: Is there a "dress code" for coming to worship at HFUMC?

Q: What is Safe Sanctuaries?

In order to volunteer with our children’s or youth ministry we ask that you attend our church for 6 months so we can get to know each other. After 6 months, we ask you to participate in our Safe Sanctuary Training. As a part of the training you will be asked to fill out a volunteer application and complete a background check form. The safety of our children is a priority and as such we appreciate your willingness to be trained and screened as a volunteer.
