CURRENT WAYS TO FINANCIALLY SUPPORT THE MINISTRIES OF HAMPSTEAD UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

Hampstead United Methodist Church is proud of its support of our congregation and of the Hampstead community. HUMC provides a safe and secure environment for our children and youth through our Preschool, Scout troops, Vacation Bible School, and UMYF. Activities for adults include UMM, OWLS and UMW Circles. The Leap of Faith food pantry, MUNCH backpacks, Thanksgiving Dinner bags, and MHC Christmas Angel Tree gifts are just some of the HUMC missions providing support to our community families in need. More details on a number of these activities are available on this website.


As HUMC expands its facilities and congregational and community programs, the costs to maintain and grow activities have and will continue to increase. Unfortunately, the increases in utility and maintenance costs we have all experienced affect the church as well. While we each have special missions that we want to support, please remember to contribute to the church’s General Fund, which supports the operation of our facilities and our staff, as well as activity and mission administrative costs. We greatly appreciate your generous financial support of our church and its programs. If you have questions on any of the information below or have other concerns regarding making a donation to HUMC, please contact the Financial Secretary at the church office at 910-270-4648, ext. 101.
