This month we are collecting Cereal and Juice for Loaves and Fishes to provide Groceries for our Neighbors in Need. Please drop off low sugar cereal (Hot or Cold Cereal Welcome) and 100% Juice in plastic bottles in the Staff Conference room. Please bring donations by June 27th.


Roof Above needs 800+ sandwiches every day. We at HLUMC can help even when we cannot be together! Sign up to make 25 or more sandwiches and bring them to the church Evans Hall. Next collection date – TBA

IF questions contact Bill Horton 

Please write the total number of sandwiches you deliver to the church on the outside of your delivery bag to facilitate a quick and accurate count.

Your response to the Crisis Assistance Clothing Drive was overwhelming! Thanks to all who donated, communicated details, and delivered an estimated 18 bins of clothing for our neighbors.

May Mission

Did you know that Hawthorne Lane UMC provides office and meeting space for Changed Choices Ministry staff on the 3rd Floor of our Education Building adjacent to the Youth Lounge? As followers of Christ, Changed Choices empowers currently and recently incarcerated women to achieve lasting, positive change through programming and mentoring for mental, emotional, and spiritual support. They are helping women build new lives beyond prison walls. 

How Can We Help?

“Prices on everything at the grocery store are going up. These increases impact many of our women clients whose income is minimal and not increasing at the pace of necessities.” During the 5 Sundays In May drive, Changed Choices is seeking donations of paper products. The items needed are: paper towels, styrofoam and plastic cups, plates, plastic cutlery, foil, saran wrap, toilet paper, and hand soap. Family size rolls/containers rather than bulk packaging is preferred. 

Donations can be delivered to Hawthorne Lane Church and placed in the Staff Conference Room facing the parking lot any time between May 1-31. Amazon orders are welcome too. Just send to HLUMC – 501 Hawthorne Lane, Charlotte, NC 28204. Attn: Changed Choices Drive

Once the drive has ended, a HLUMC volunteer will contact Changed Choices and Changed Choices staff will collect the donations and take them to their client reentry homes.

Thank you for being the hands and feet of Christ.
