Hospitality Teams

You can be the smile someone needs on a Sunday morning!

The Hospitality Teams welcome people to worship, answer questions, help folks find what they need and show people where to go (like the nursery or the Godly Play room for kids), assist with seating and special needs, take attendance, and put the financial offerings away. It’s a great way to meet people and connect more deeply at HUMC!

Serve once a month or sub in as available

You can make a regular monthly commitment and serve the same Sunday at the same service each month, OR you can sign up for the sub list if you don’t want to make a monthly commitment – we’ll reach out when we need subs, and you can reply if you’re available that Sunday.

Pray for Others

We’d love to add you to our email list for twice-weekly prayer concerns, so you can use your gift of prayer to pray for others.

Nursery Staff

Our staff nursery workers care for children during Sunday worship.

Each staff worker is trained in our Safe Sanctuaries policy and has passed a background check, and several are trained in infant/child CPR.

If you’re interested in working in the nursery, please contact Lindsay Robinson or use this form:
