Community Ministries

Love, INC.

Love in the name of Christ is a county-wide cooperative ministry by area churches to help people who need some basic necessities: clothing, food, shelter, gasoline, furniture, etc. Hardy Church provides clothing for younger children. Several of our adult members serve in this ministry. You could, too. Link to Love INC

Nursing Home Visits

Along with many other area churches, Hardy Church makes visits to two Howell-area nursing homes (MediLodge of Livingston, formerly White Pine and MediLodge-Howell) to provide Sunday afternoon worship for the residents, along with some time to visit. People of all ages serve in this ministry. We’ve even had service dogs come along with us.

God’s Kitchen

On several Wednesdays each year, we provide a group of servants who help serve dinner at God’s Kitchen, in St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Howell. It’s fun. You should join us. Judy Lemke coordinates this ministry at Hardy Church.

Meals on Wheels

When our youth get an extra day off of school, they sometimes participate in the area Meals on Wheels program as runners, taking the meal to the door of a program client. We can always use some additional help on these activities. Link to Meals on Wheels

Financial support for a variety of ministries  

Each year, the church directly supports a number of ministries, financially, including support for our sister church in Liberia, Mount Zion UMC in the Grand Bassa District.  We also encourage our members to individually support local ministries, as the Lord leads them, including Forgotten Men Ministries (for men and women in jail, in Livingston County), The Salvation Army, and VINA (free dental work for the needier people in Livingston County), among others.
