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.

 

Indoor Worship has resumed!

On May 30, we resumed worshipping inside the sanctuary. We will continue to wear masks and have extra filters in the air-conditioning system; we will not be using the ceiling fans. Households are asked to sit together and be six feet apart from those in other households. We will only enter in the front doors/ramp, and exiting will be explained in worship (one-way traffic only).

 

We also livestream our services on our Facebook page every Sunday at 11:00 AM. If you aren't able to tune in, don't worry - the recorded sermon will also be uploaded on our YouTube channel every Sunday afternoon in addition to the livestream.

Angel Tree Christmas Ministry: Gift tags may be taken from the glass door to the Sanctuary under the breezeway near the Church Office, from the Christmas Tree in the Narthex, and the Christmas Tree right outside the Sanctuary doors on the Congress Ave. side.

Gifts may be dropped off at the Church Office on Mondays through Fridays from 9am - 2:30 pm, unwrapped and with the gift tag attached. Items can also be placed in the Collection Boxes in the Narthex. Additional drop-off dates will be December 5 from 3-6pm and December 8 from 5-7pm in the Nursery. All gifts need to be back to the Church Office no later than December 12th.

Financial donations may be made by writing checks to Havre de Grace United Methodist Church and putting "Angel Tree" on the Memo line. This ministry provides gifts to families of elementary students attending Havre de Grace public schools.

 

Our Youth Fellowship filled 27 boxes with cookies to send our college students. At one dozen per box (plus some to eat -- ahem!) that's over 324 cookies! Thanks to Lisa Altland, Wendy Fabriziani & Dean & Michele Cymek for supervising the baking.
