Faith in Action Community Service Sundays
Since 2011, HHUMC has participated in Faith in Action Sundays. The congregation worships at a single, early service on Sunday then goes out into the community in service. In doing this, we honor the vows we took upon joining the church, by upholding it with our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness.
Examples of some of the projects have been:
• Landscaping projects at Helotes Elementary School
• Creating prayer blankets for hospital visits
• Baking cookies for Brooke Army Medical Hospital
• Assembling and painting PETS (Personal Energy Transportation) at project headquarters
• Various projects at Methodist Mission Home
• Serenading veterans at Veterans Hospital
• Children creating and delivering tray favors for Methodist Children’s Hospital
• Serving lunch at Haven for Hope
The service projects change at each bi-annual event with periodic projects occurring at other times such as a Saturday working on a Habitat for Humanity house and more. Congregational input for ministries and projects is encouraged.
The Faith in Action Sundays are enthusiastically performed by the entire congregation and planning for the next event begins immediately. Watch the website for upcoming events.
Everyone is welcome to participate.
