This Sunday, September 13, we switch to our school-year worship schedule with worship beginning at 10:45 am. You are welcome to join us in person (see the necessary steps below) or by live stream on Youtube (link below) or our Facebook page (Hancock First United Methodist Church)

We are not resuming Sunday school at this point. We may resume later this fall. We’ll send updates to keep people informed

In order to reduce the potential spread of infection we are taking social distancing measures. Masks are required. Every other pew is closed and no more than two separate family units are allowed in each open pew. We are not singing together (we do have music), we are not making physical contact with one another, or passing items to each other.

If you have recently noticed any of the following symptoms please do not attend: cough, sore throat, nasal congestion, runny nose, fever, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell

We will continue to post weekly sermons here, and on the church Facebook page

Here’s a link to the Church’s Youtube channel, where you can find a live stream of our Sunday worship

We are still the church, and are figuring out new ways to stay connected. Call a friend or two for social connection. God will get us through this. Stay home and be safe.

We want to meet you where you are in your faith life and help you take the next steps to growing an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ!

  • Here, you will find a place to become involved and make a difference in our world.
  • Here, you will find a home – a place you can be yourself and honestly explore your spirituality.
  • Here, you will find opportunity to study scripture and pressing issues of the day with other Christians in an open-minded environment that encourages discovery.

Children, teenagers, university students, families, empty-nesters, and seniors work together to build community and to share the blessings of God with those who are less fortunate.

Now is the perfect time to come and check out the many activities and opportunities for personal and communal growth.

If you’re visiting for the first time you might not know where to park (sorry – we’re working on making it more obvious. We’re all a work in progress aren’t we). There are a couple of parking lots we use across the street, on both sides of the bank building, and behind the bank building. You can also park in the spaces on the steet. The first, or East door is the main door, but either one will get you where you need to be.
