Sunday Church Service
We are looking forward to our in-person church service Sunday, May 22nd, at 9am! This Sunday we would love to hear about any answer to prayer you have seen. If one of the children has one to share they can bring their parents to the mic with them. That would be fantastic! We also offer a livestream of the service, available on our church’s Facebook page. The livestream will appear at 9am on Sunday mornings and will be available to watch later as well.
City Kids Class
We are excited to minister to your children this Sunday! Please use this form to sign up your children (age 3yr – 4th grade) for class. The City Kids ministry needs more volunteers! If you are interested in joining the City Kids Volunteer Team please contact Anna Talaiver.
After Church Fellowship
If the weather is nice this Sunday after church, let’s hangout again! We’ll plan to meet up near the playground across the street from church, this coming Sunday morning after the service. There will be a small table set up with drinking water, hand sanitizer, napkins, plastic cups, plasticware, etc to help anyone who wants to bring their own food/drinks. In this way, we could facilitate a little more of the wonderfully positive social time that has been happening after service. It is wheelchair accessible. We still have access to our church bathrooms on Sundays.

Good to Know
Food Pantry and Church Welcome Area
Hampden UMC is the host site for a food pantry effort between several area churches. For a variety of reasons, they will no longer be taking in food from one source that required the locked doors and extra reporting. This will make it possible to open up more of a “welcome area” in that space. To supplement the previous food source they would welcome the donation of dry goods and nonperishable food such as pasta, rice, and canned foods. Such items can be brought in on a Sunday. After our service, please be careful to place the items on a table in that area in a way that’s easy for organization.
Daily Bible Reading
Every day this year, Pastor Ben is sharing a daily suggested reading of a few verses from a Psalm or Proverb. The Psalms are a collection of songs exalting God. It serves as a book of prayer and praise. The Psalms help us in our relationship with God. The Proverbs help us in our relationship with this world, in our daily life. The daily readings can be found here or received as a daily email. Click here to subscribe to receive the daily posts via email.
When David is overwhelmed by challenges, he sings his request of God for help and an ability to live daily aware of God’s love. In Psalm 61, David sings about a personal relationship with God where the love of God is a constant source of peace. David has learned that God is more powerful than anything else in this life. He makes a commitment to the daily worship of God.
