toilet paper drive


Remember March?  We were all rushing to restock our Toilet Paper before it was gone.  That is what we need to do for the Food Pantry.  They are asking us to restock their supply of toilet paper for those in need.  Just think if you couldnt find any or couldnt afford to buy any.  Thats how some people may feel and they rely on the pantry for even one roll a visit.  Outreach is asking you to join us again this year for our annual TP Drive.  You can bring toilet paper in to the church during office hours or when attending worship or make a monetary donation to the church with Toilet Paper Drive written on the memo line. You may also click on Donate tab above to Give Online. 

                                        Thank you from the  Outreach members.

              January Fund Drive 


 This first of three annual House Bank collections at Horseheads FUMC helps us work toward alleviating food insecurity both locally and globally.  The covid 19 virus pandemic has made the hunger situation even more serious all over the world. As our congress debates what areas of the budget to keep, increase, decrease or delete, it is even more important to support charities that will continue to address the hunger situation.  The donations from the House Bank collection will be divided between the Horseheads Food Pantry and UMCOR World Hunger and Poverty plus a donation to Bread for the World. There will be a large House Bank in the Narthex during the month of January for your donations or you may mark your check with the amount you wish to go to House Bank for Hunger and place it in the offering anytime during January.  You may also click on Donate tab above to Give Online. 


                         Thank you in advance for your contributions.

     A Reopening Message


             No one knew that after all this time we would still be looking at “how we can worship,” “how we can be safe,” and “when will this end?”  The Reopening Team met this week to discuss the current regulations regarding church worship services.  While we have waited for a return to “normal”, it seems we will continue to wait.  

            Meanwhile, those who would like to worship in person are invited to begin attending the Sunday Service at 9:30.  For the convenience of checking people in (and for tracking purposes), we ask that you continue to make reservations by calling the office at 739-1943 or by email at hhdsfirstumc@stny.rr.com  by noon on Fridays. If you forget to make a reservation you will be asked the health questions when you arrive.  

            You are asked to use safe distancing and wear masks throughout the service.  Families may sit together. The mandate is that we won’t be singing as a group (humming is the new singing).  Any conversations should maintain the 6ft. distance, masks, with brevity. 

            Knowing that some people may still feel better staying home, the service will continue to be broadcast live each week.  As Methodists, we seek togetherness.  Know that God is with you whether you worship in church or in your home.  Blessings to all and continue to stay safe.  “And this, too, shall pass.”


With God’s Blessings to All, 

From the Reopening Team           


Reminder:  If you would like to come sit and/or pray in the Sanctuary, you are welcome to come during office hours.
