Come as you are, all are welcome.
What to expect on Sunday
Walking in the door for the 9:30 am worship service you may find the hallways look a bit 60’ish. Fortunately, the smiles that greet you are timeless. Continue past the rack of name tags, coat area, and our Sunday School classrooms … settle in for an hour of worship, enjoy a mix of music (organ, piano, flute, etc.), vocal and bell choirs, and your own voice joining in hymns. Reverend Bruce Hartley offering prayers, “May Jesus meet you exactly where you are,” and an inspiring sermon message. Yes, our members will ask your name as they greet you. Please understand that we are delighted you stopped in to check us out. A number of adult, youth, and children’s Sunday School groups meet following the worship service at 10:15 am. We welcome your return, and the opportunity to become a part of our church family.
Who we are
in 1964 a group of over 60 Hudson residents came together to form Hudson United Methodist Church, first meeting in the now-former Hudson Middle School. In 1969 land was bought and construction began on the present building at the corner of Hudson-Aurora and Stow Roads. Later a major building expansion was completed for our weekday Nursery School which is open to all.
We find strength and spiritual growth within our many small groups for bible study, fellowship, and service through mission as we reach out beyond our building and serve together.
What we do
Our small groups meet in adult, youth, and children’s Sunday School classes, and additionally, we invite all to women’s and men’s bible study, fellowship circles meeting on weekdays and evenings, and Youth Group Sunday evenings. Every summer we offer VBS (Vacation Bible School) a week of fun and learning for children. We provide ongoing service to OPEN M and Feed My Sheep ministries in Akron, Habitat for Humanity of Summit County, work trips to Puerto Rico and overseas, and each year we take youth and adults to repair homes in Appalachia with Appalachian Service Project (ASP).
