Dear Hampstead UMC Family,

      We are well underway in the planning of our Fall Festival featuring our "Heavenly Roasted" BBQ , bake sale and activities for all.   Many thanks to all the volunteers and donors to our recent Yard sale.  It was a great success!   

      The Hampstead Heavenly BBQ Festival is an annual event held on the front lawn of Hampstead United Method Church. This year's Festival will host heavenly BBQ, roasted on site, our fabulous bake sale, and many activities for kids, i.e., reptile exhibit, exotic birds, environmentalist, Beekeeper, Bouncy Houses, bean bag toss, face painting, entertainment of dance groups and music, and cotton candy.   Our flower team will have a variety of flowers and there will be gift baskets and t-shirts available.  it's a time to meander under our beautiful live oaks and our on-site pumpkin patch where photos abound.  It's a time for friends and family to gather and enjoy great food, music, entertainment, games and fellowship.

      If you haven't signed up to volunteer for our fall festival, please go to the volunteer sign up page on this site and sign up!

      soon bbq dinner tickets will be available for purchase.  we hope to  pre-sell as many tickets as possible.  church members will you consider your prepurchase, as well as helping to sell a few extra tickets to your neighbors and friends?  these tickets also make great gifts for those persons in your life you'd like to treat to a fun day.   

       all proceeds will go toward making a community kitchen a reality.  Just imagine a place that will help meet the needs of those who hunger, a space for community groups to gather, a kitchen that can become the heart of hampstead. the service possibilities are endless!
