Serve with HPUMC


"Every believer has received grace gifts, so use them to serve one another as faithful stewards of the many-colored tapestry of God's grace." -1 Peter 4:10

We envision the church, empowered by the Holy Spirit, serving across all ministries, including in worship services, all age levels, adults, care, and disability ministries. We believe the Holy Spirit grants us spiritual gifts, according to God's design, to use for the good of others, meeting their needs and where they are. We encourage engagement that is relational and actively interpersonal, as we serve as individuals and in groups to grow in spiritual community with each other and with those whom we serve.
