Worship & Music Ministry

Seeking Advent Wreath Candle Lighters: Starting November 19, we invite people to light the Advent wreath candles during worship. Families, small groups, couples, friends — one person lights the candle(s), others read Scripture or a few brief words about that candle’s meaning (written for you by the pastors), or however you want to split it up. Please contact the church office for details (info@hilliardumc.org, 614.876.2403).
