Sunday mornings @10am / Feb. 18 – March 25

“Look, I’ll pour out my spirit on you. I’ll reveal my words to you.” – Wisdom (from Proverbs)

Have you ever misplaced your phone–which is on vibrate of course–and then asked someone to call it? We get really still and really quiet. Our ears perk up in all directions in order to be ready to hear that little buzz. It is a quieting down and high alert all at the same time. This Lent we will quiet things down and heighten our attention to the “still, small voice” of God and our own True Self. Listening through prayer as well as meditation on holy texts is an ancient Lenten practice. Come and rest, come and listen.

Welcome to Hardy UMC’s website…

IMG_0073Hello! I’m glad you found our website. Perhaps it means you are looking for a church in which to grow in your relationship with God, or to do servant ministry that makes a difference in the lives of people in the community, or to make some new friends, who will be there for you. These are the things we excel in. Hardy Church has staying power; we’ve been here for more than 140 years. Our annual summer chicken dinner and December Live Nativity events are both celebrating over 50 consecutive years of ministry. But we are not satisfied to keep doing only the same things we’ve done before. We respond to current needs with fresh, new activities for our children and youth, new small group adult Bible studies, and men’s and women’s groups that have been recharged over the last  year. Even our website is new. I encourage you to come worship with us on a Sunday morning or come for one of our weekday activities. We’ll be looking for you!

+++ Pastor John Schneider    

Open hearts, open minds, open doors



This is a United Methodist slogan signifying our openness to loving God and neighbor, our willingness to consider many ways of being a Christian and our invitation for anyone and everyone to come fellowship with us. But, I was thinking about that last one, open doors. I think it also means that we open our doors to go out into our community to help people who are in need. There is another slogan that comes from our Rethink Church website: Church can happen anywhere.

Opening doors to go out where church can happen anywhere
