Dear Community Neighbor,
We are the First United Methodist Church of Hudson (First UMC Hudson). We believe God offers hope and joy to all people and we understand that this faith leads naturally to action. Therefore, we take great joy in serving God through service to the Hudson community and beyond.
We want to ensure, especially during these challenging economic times, that you're aware of some of the complimentary programs available to you at First UMC Hudson:
Worship—Join us for worship Sundays at 10:45 a.m. for an hour-long experience that includes time for prayer, singing, hearing open-minded lessons of the Gospel, the Word of God, and sharing our individual needs with one another.
Agape Café – [Ah-gah-peh] Volunteer chefs and volunteer staff serve around 70 guests a complimentary, delicious supper each Thursday from 5 to 6:30PM. Many choose to arrive at 4 p.m. for games, coffee and conversation.
Activity Groups for all ages—Children and Teens gather for social interaction and spiritual formation each week, always supervised by CORI-certified adults. Adults also meet weekly to help each other cope with major and minor life challenges.
Free Friendship Dinner – A delish dinner with dessert is served cafeteria style usually on the fourth Saturday (check our online calendar) of each month to approximately 100 neighbors.
If you would like more information about the opportunities listed above or you would simply like a chance to speak confidentially with the pastor, please call the church office: 978-562-2932.
Yours in Faith,
First United Methodist Church of Hudson
PLEASE NOTE: The church will joyfully come together for worship each Sunday, unless a state of emergency is declared.
However, please use your own discretion, and be safe.
Wednesday morning Bible Study will resume on January 8th at 10 am.
We will start the new year with a guest leader, Kevin Holochwost.
He is a physicist, a mathematician and a retired professor now working in biomedical engineering. He is a former atheist who has converted to Christianity. He will be approaching the topic of atheism from his own personal experiences. His topic will include general atheistic held beliefs and understanding important key points for when one should and should not argue with a non-believer. He will also talk about the definition of Christianity, specifically in light of how that impacts speaking to an unbeliever. His last topic will include the relationship between religion and science. Kevin is well versed in Biblical knowledge and will offer a great insight of what it means to be a Christian. This study is open to all those interested in the topic. It is expected that this discussion will last approximately two weeks depending upon questions asked. Please bring your Bible.
Following Kevin’s topic, the weekly study will resume with a four-week discussion on the book, “Dinner with a Perfect Stranger” by David Gregory.
