Welcome!

The Havre de Grace United Methodist Church, a congregation with a proud history and a bright future, invites you to worship and fellowship with us. Our beautiful facility, located at the intersection of Union and Congress Avenues in historic Havre de Grace, has served as a community cornerstone of faith for more than 100 years.

The Christmas Angel Tree Ministry will be somewhat different this year due to health reasons. You may drop off unwrapped gifts with tags attached at the Church Office M-F from 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM, and there will be two evening drop-off dates:

- December 6 between 3:00 - 6:00 PM
- December 9 between 4:00 - 6:00 PM

 

PLEASE DROP OFF GIFTS AT THE CHURCH OFFICE NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 9TH.

The gift tags are displayed on the door to the right of the church's main entrance - as tags are taken down, they will be replenished. In lieu of gifts, monetary donations may be made by writing checks to the Havre de Grace United Methodist Church - just write "Angel Tree" in the memo line. This outreach benefits students of Havre de Grace area Elementary schools, who will receive the donated gifts on Christmas.

 

Grief Share: Our Grief Share facilitators, for health and safety issues, have decided not to resume in-person Grief Share groups at this time, BUT THERE IS HELP AND HOPE! Grief Share is being offered online - simply visit GriefShare.org, insert your zip code in the "Find a Group" box, and a listing of churches appears.

From there, just choose a church and click on its dates. You will then have the option to send an email or call the contact person listed for the participating church; he/she will then contact you with the information on how to sign up for the online program. Presently, Harford Community Church is meeting online, Sundays at 12:00 PM. The program runs through September 6. (Remember, one can join at any time, as one session does not build upon the next.)

Pleasant View Baptist Church meets online on Mondays at 6:00 PM beginning August 10 through November 9. Haven Community Church, in North East, MD, is transitioning to in-person sessions beginning Monday, August 10 at 6:30 PM running through November 9. Grace Community Church plans to have online sessions starting Wednesday, September 2 at 7:00 PM. This group will run through December 9. Remember, God IS with you and He WILL walk with you on your journey from grief to joy.
