  • new drive-through communion option

    The first Sunday of the month FUMC will offer an opportunity for all who want to receive Holy Communion in person after the online worship services have concluded.  The pastors will be out under the portico from 12:30-1:30 PM with consecrated individually wrapped communion elements to hand to you with a blessing as you drive-through.  This will offer us a chance to see each other face-to-face, talk for a moment, and join together in celebrating the Lord's Supper.  We are trying this on Communion Sundays as a way to help us connect more and participate in worship together.  For those who prefer to partake of communion during the online worship service, gather your bread and juice before the service and we will bless it during the Great Thanksgiving and invite you to eat and drink the elements at the same time we do.  We look forward to greeting you on August 2nd as we celebrate Chris's abundant love for us all!

  • Video Devotions with pastor karen eastor-bayne

    Three times a week on Monday/Wednesday/Friday, our senior pastor,  Karen Easter-Bayne will be sharing 3.-5 minute, family devotionals. If you have been receiving the daily devotions from our pastoral staff you are all ready connected.  If you would like to receive the daily devotions be sure to sign up for FUMC's emails so the devotionals make it directly to your inbox.  From your mobile you can text FUM6 to 22828 or email gloria@hvlfumc.org and request to be added to our mailing list.
