Feb 11th - James 5:14-15
FEb 18th - Matthew 3:13-17
13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. 14 But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”
15 Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented.
16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
Our church is mission minded. We have been involved with Cooperative Food Pantry the Weekend Backpacks for our local elementary students, and providing lunches for our seniors in the area two days a week . We are also involved with the United Methodist Church monthly mission focus on both local, regional, national, and world mission programs.
The Cooperating Ministries Food Pantry is made up several churches in the area that works together to provide food for those in need. It is housed here at Hartford United Methodist Church. They distribute food every Thursday from 4 pm - 7 p.m. They are able to provide the food because they get generous donations from many people in our town, the Pokagon Fund has awarded them grants, The Four Winds Casino also helps out at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter, Catholic Charities also donates food to the food pantry, along with many of our local farms will give produce and fresh fruit when they are able to. They have been lucky to get donations from Burnett packing and the local Harding's store as well.
The Backpack Mission project is in need of funding. If you can help we would appreciate it. The Backpack Mission was developed and created because many of our teachers and administrators saw that some of our children did not have enough food in their homes on the weekends when school was not in session. We have a group of volunteers that pack up the bags and deliver them to the school on Friday so that the students can take them home on Friday. They provide food for breakfast and either lunch or supper for those two days. We have been extremely blessed by those who support this program: The Pokagon Fund, Burnett Packing, The Hartford United Methodist Church Mission Team, and local individuals who contribute money so that we can purchase what we need through Feed America. We have also received help through feed the children on occasion as well.
Bringing Every Senior Together (B.E.S.T. program) is a program for all area seniors in which they can come to the church for coffee, companionship, meals and activities. We meet every Monday and Thursday. The doors open at 11 a.m. for coffee and companionship. The meal is at noon which is by donation. Then following the meal the seniors are invited to stay and do a variety of activities. This program was blessed with a grant from the Pokagon Fund to help offset the cost of the meals. We are so thankful for their support .
