Youth Choir

Attention Haygood Youth and Parents,

Do you like to sing? We are developing a youth choir this Fall, 2019! This choir will sing periodically in worship and at different outreach opportunities like the Wesley Woods retirement community. We are trying to gauge how many of our youth would be interested in singing. Tim Spraggins and Natalie Rogers will be the directors. Right now, the choir will be for rising 6-8th graders. If we have high school students interested, please let us know. Please fill out the form below to help us get a sense of your interest and best times for rehearsals.

Rise Against Hunger

Help us Rise Against Hunger

Our church has an ambitious goal of packing 20,000 meals through the organization Rise Against Hunger. This is possible. Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable, mobilizing the necessary resources to end hunger by 2030. You are welcome but not obligated to help us fundraise. Each meal cost 34 cents.

You may wonder if we are having our regular worship in the sanctuary on this Sunday. Worship will be part of the experience in the gym at 10 a.m. In the gym, our choir will lead us in song and Rev. Zant will offer a sermon before our work. Then we’ll get to packing at 10:30a.m. Young or young at heart, there’s a place for everyone to serve. We do ask that you register for this event here.

When? Sunday, September 8th from 10a.m.-noon.

Where? In the Haygood gym.

We will have worship to begin our time together at 10a.m. and then begin packing by 10:30a.m!

All are welcome! Bring your friends. This is open to our community. It’s a great way for families to join together in serving.

Congregational Survey
Jun
14
to Jun 20

Congregational Survey

Our administrative council approved a recommendation from our Reconciling Ministry Network exploratory committee to survey our congregation about how they feel about what happened at General Conference this past February and their feelings on the LGBTQ community, marriage and ordination. The survey wants to get your thoughts on joining groups like the Reconciling Ministries Network and supporting other movements like the UMCNext, which is working to end the exclusionary language in our Book of Discipline towards LGBTQ persons.

This is an anonymous survey and is meant to get a general sense of how the congregation feels. It’s not a vote of any type. The survey will help give us an understanding of our congregation’s thoughts, theology and attitudes. We hold people’s responses with great care and respect.

You can take the survey by clicking here.  We’ll keep this survey open until 5 pm on Thursday, June 20.

Thank you for your willingness to take this survey. Our hope is to help us understand each other from all different backgrounds and to make Haygood the most welcoming place for all people. There’s a Place for You at Haygood.

Remember your baptism Sunday

This Sunday service promises to help you renew or start your spiritual journey.

Rev. Zant will be preaching on Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan River. We’ll offer you the opportunity to remember your baptism in the service. You’ll be invited to touch the waters in our baptismal font and remember who you are as a child of God.

For those who have never been baptized, you too are invited to touch the waters. This is a perfect time to consider being baptized. Our Lord and Savior Jesus offers the gift of salvation through baptism to any and all. Do you have questions about baptism? Contact Rev. Zant at Will@haygoodumc.org. He’ll be glad to help you begin your baptismal journey.

Lastly, we’ll be saying thank you to our 2018 leadership team and installing our leadership for 2019. We encourage all our leadership team to attend!

Sunday Morning Group Study

Begins January 20 at 10am

He left everything to follow his teacher and possessed a passion that would change the world. That’s one way to describe the disciple Peter. Here’s another: poor, uneducated, quick-tempered, and full of doubts and fears. Doesn’t even sound like the same man. Join our Sunday group as we look at this flawed but faithful disciple. We’ll begin with introductory session on January 13. Meets in room 105. Contact Will Zant at Will@haygoodumc.org for more information. Sign up below.
