Outreach

UMW Nurture Committee Needs You!

The Hudson United Methodist Women’s Nurture Committee is a vital ministry to the members of HUMC. The Committee arranges for meals to be provided to families that may need assistance with meals following a hospitalization, health issues or a new baby, etc. There are also times that we need someone to deliver a meal. We can also have an ongoing need and would welcome new volunteers to participate in this church-wide ministry.

If you are on the email distribution list, we thank you and hope that you will remain on the list. If you have not signed up to assist with a meal from time to time but would like to be added to the email distribution list, please contact Cheryl Gamble or the church office.

MISSIONS

UMW Presents Special Mission Recognition Award

One of the ways United Methodist Women support missions is through the purchase of Special Mission Recognition Award pins.  It is also an opportunity for the UMW to honor a special recipient who has distinguished themselves in advancing the purpose of UMW and has also dedicated so much time and effort to service.

Cheryl Maimona was presented with the 2022 UMW Special Mission Pin. Cheryl received a gold lapel pin with a cross. Cheryl was recognized for the many ways she serves in different ministries of the church and mission outreach programs. Cheryl is generous with her time, and she is a warm and caring person and very deserving of being recognized as this year’s UMW Special Mission Recognition recipient. Congratulations Cheryl!

Fall is here, the colors are vibrant, and it is time for the Fall mission project of Hudson United Women in Faith (HUWF)!  We are very excited to announce that we are collecting, assembling, and delivering hygiene kits to UMCOR (The United Methodist Committee on Relief). We are asking for your help in making this mission successful as you have so often done in the past with our collection of items for school kits.

The hygiene kits require washcloths, hand towels, combs, toothbrushes, nail clippers, soap, and Band-Aids to be used for people who are facing devastation due to flooding and other natural disasters. We will be collecting items for the hygiene kits during October and November.

Please visit our “fall” tree area in the Sunday School wing for details on how to participate. It is as simple as taking a paper leaf from our tree with the item needed, shopping for it, bringing the item to church, and putting it under the tree.
