Every week on Wednesday the Hawthorne Happenings comes out through email. There you will find a weekly devotional by one of our AMAZING staff members, information about the current worship theme, youth news, kids news, the latest chapel video from Ms. Lizanne and any other current announcements/postings. It’s the one stop shop for all things HLUMC for that week. Here you will find the current week as well as a few of the prior weeks in case you are hunting for something! If you’d like to be added to the weekly enews please contact Debby Coles. If you’d like to get the weekly text alerts from the church contact Pastor Carrie.
Since we can’t have VBS where the kids come to church we will have Vacation Bible School all during the month of July IN WORSHIP. Pastor Tom and Pastor Carrie will preach the VBS themes, Ms Lizanne will lead the VBS songs with the praise team, and we will incorporate ways to do hands on mission and crafts at home. There will not be 501worship those sundays but the kids will be encouraged to work on their craft during the sermon. ALL this can be done through our regular LIVE stream worship. To participate fully you’ll need an OFFICIAL VBS KIT from the church. Put your kids names and your address in to the form and we will deliver one right to your door for each child. Completely FREE! Get ready to Armor Up for Jesus this JULY. Contact Ms. Lizanne with any questions email@example.com
Our staff is working very hard at helping us all stay connected to one another while we are social distancing! One of our core values is being together in community so it’s so hard when we are forced to be separated from one another. We are so very thankful for technology in this situation. We invited you to connect in wherever and whenever you can. Meet with your small groups online, email, text, and call one another. Let your kids FaceTime/Zoom their leaders. We need each other – to hear the voice of God through one another. Below is a list of videos/connection points to keep us in community.

Our theme for Lent is prayer. Jesus prayed that ALL will be fed, ALL will be forgiven, ALL will be freed. Let’s join together in discovering how we can be more faithful to our prayer this season – praying those very same things for the kingdom of God here on earth. As you pray and consider prayer – join us in making movement in social media by posting pictures that represent prayer – maybe a picture you take of something you see during the week, or your prayer space, a prayer book, anything that represents prayer to you. Tag us so we can share together. #hlumcprays
Each week day while we are in stay at home orders and social distancing the staff at HLUMC will be sharing a reflection at 12 noon for a few minutes – 5-10 minutes. A short break in our day to reconnect with one another and most importantly to God. We may be separated by space but our God continues to connect us to one another through Word and prayer. Reflections will be posted here and on all of our social media platforms.
