Greetings to you in this New Year,


It’s a time of new beginnings and pondering how we want our lives to be in this new year. I hope you take time to slow down enough to be still and pray about how you can stop to smell the roses, and watch the caterpillars, and blow bubbles and watch the clouds and the look at the stars with your children! Help them know that God has created the world and everything in it and it is good, very good!


Come and see our newly painted/decorated nursery and bathroom! We are excited about these changes and are making more! We have now put TV/DVD players in our Sunday School Classrooms upstairs, so that we can watch the brief Whirl Sunday School videos. We want to make our Children’s Sunday School and Events the best that they can be, but we need your help! We are hoping to have more SS teachers, so that we can divide the classes into 2 ages/grades each and are making space for this. Vacation Bible School will be here before we know it, starting on June 15 and we will need lots of hands on deck for this!


Please let me know what your hopes and dreams are for our children’s ministries at HCUMC and how you are willing to help!


With wishes for a great new year for you and your family, 


Rev. Susan Bryan
