Serving Beyond Hilliard UMC

Hilliard UMC serves others and builds community…

Mission Item of the Month

Watch the Sunday worship folder and home page news posts for the Mission Item of the Month, benefitting the Hilliard Food Pantry, the Thursday Street Feed, or another worthy mission.

Blessing Bags

Pick up a reusable shopping bag to keep in your car, a grocery list, and some prayer cards (available in each building). Then shop and fill bags with nonperishable food items. Hand them to those who are in need while you’re out and about. Ask their name, and ask how you can be praying for them. Offer a prayer right then if you’re comfortable doing so.

Hilliard Food Pantry

Collect nonperishable groceries for the Hilliard Food Pantry to distribute to families in need in Hilliard. Year-round, with special Thanksgiving and summertime collections. Contact Ron Speaks or the church office. Visit the Hilliard Food Pantry website for more information, and sign up here to volunteer at the Hilliard Food Pantry.

Thanksgiving Outreach

Join our annual Thanksgiving food drive, in partnership with Hilliard City Schools and the Hilliard Food Pantry, where we bring in and process around 1,000 bags of food and provide 200+ families with Thanksgiving dinner and food for the rest of the weekend. Grab some brown bags from church, buy the items on the list, and return to church. Volunteer for bag checking and organizing Friday night, greeting and hospitality, distribution to families, and clean up. It all happens the weekend before Thanksgiving.
