At MHUMC we love to celebrate Christmas Eve with a service of Candles and Carols.  We retell the Christmas story with a tapestry of scripture readings and songs of the season, capped off with singing “Silent Night” by candlelight. This year, while we are still unable to meet all together in the Sanctuary due to social distancing protocols, we are offering this service as a recorded experience you can participate in from your home. Follow the entire service in the video here, or go at your own pace with portions of the service provided below. Note that the video has a “Closed Caption” transcript, accessibleRead More →

In many of our homes, we’ve been preparing for Christmas with decorations, special foods, and greetings with those we haven’t seen for a while.  We’ve been busy making our home to feel welcoming to friends and family, even if it’s in a “virtual” sense.

We started this seven sermon series by identifying the mess that needs to be cleaned up, then last Sunday, Trish talked about getting together a clean up crew to clean this place up. Why, because “company is coming.” Now this Sunday we’ve got to spruce the place up and make it look great for those who are coming. We want to welcome our company and so we need to make this place beautiful and hospitable. So where do we start? What do we include? And, why does it matter?
