Hey, Hampstead Family!  Grace and peace! 



Congratulations to Joseph Batton!  He’s received word that he’s made the President’s academic achievement list at Cape Fear Community College!  (Five classes, all “A’s” will do that for you!)  We’re proud of you, Joseph!  (Have you seen your mom’s face, lately?!

It’s positively glowing!)

(Parents and students-- if you have academic or athletic achievements to share, send them to me! I’ll include them in the missive!)


UMW Circles provide--you come and support! Pick-up will be after church service on February 7th! Noodle, tomato/basil, pasta fazool, chili, chicken queso, and more!

Details later this week--for information, Email Dixie at!

“January Workshop- style Virtual Training” that was recently provided is available for your review and entertainment! Just go to and you can watch to your heart’s content!  (Seriously, take a look at the sessions!)

A LOOK AHEAD -- As a prelude to Lent, our sermons are revealing issues that deal with sin, and our tendencies toward those choices. The title for the week is “Dancing with the Devil”, and it focusses on the scriptures Revelation to John 12: 7-17 and 20: 1-3, 7-10. 

Thanks for being a part of the HUMC family!  Until we gather again, and always, GBY!

(Thx, Tim Rootes!  Good to remember in election years!)




I know we think we have things tough now, tougher than things  have ever been.

That’s because we have lost “history”.  We only have eyes for ourselves!  I ask you to watch this video, and re-think how bad things actually are (relative to our past).  In summary, we’re really blessed!  (Thanks to Tim Rootes)
