A Joint Effort of Aldersgate, First, and Hinton Avenue UMCs
Imagine leaving a life of privilege and power to face angry mobs, painful imprisonment, and chain-breaking earthquakes - all to spread the life-changing truth of God's love. Learn the jaw-dropping story of the Apostle Paul straight from Paul himself! In an ancient "anything goes" culture, Paul will inspire kids to share the truth of God's immeasurable love today!
Hinton Avenue invites all members of the congregation as well as church visitors to share a meal and Christian fellowship at a church member's home. The Table Fellowship program provides an opportunity for members of the congregation to get to know each other better, and for visitors to find out more about Hinton Avenue UMC and its church family.
If you're interested in participating as a guest in this program or would like more information, please send your name and contact information to email@example.com or speak to Fred Schneider or Sandra McLaughlin after Sunday morning worship.
Clothes Closet - Mondays and Tuesdays, 9:00-12:00
Dedicated persons aid those in the Belmont community who are in need of clothing. Donations to the clothing closet are always welcome! We find we are often in need of mens pants, shoes, and undergarments.
United Methodist Youth Fellowship
The HAUMC Youth Fellowship is a tight-knit group of young people. The youth participate in Teens Opposing Poverty, helping to feed those in the Charlottesville community, and in other local and global missions. The youth meet weekly on Sundays for dinner and fellowship at the church.
Music - Chancel Choir, Handbells, and Sign Language
The music ministry at HAUMC provides opportunities for fellowship and worship for anyone and everyone. The Chancel Choir performs the anthem on Sunday morning and is directed and accompanied by experience musicians Gary Bibb and Jennifer Sandy. The Handbell Choir comes together once a week to ring three octaves of bells and often performs with the Chancel Choir in worship. For elementary school age kids, the Sign Language ministry is a time when these children can come together to learn to sing and sign along with popular contemporary Christian music.
Always ready with an uplifting gospel song, the Hintonaires traveling choir sings for nursing homes around the Charlottesville area each week. If you love the good ol' hymns, this group may be for you!
Many other groups call HAUMC home for their own ministries. From AA and AlAnon to the Boy Scouts, our church is always full of life and excitement!

"Rekindle Our Hearts" is a thought-provoking study that will challenge the way we think about what it means to be a Christian. Written and taught by Rachel Lewis, this 10-week class will be held on Thursday mornings 10 am-12 noon beginning Jan 17, and Sunday evenings 5-7 pm beginning Jan 20. There are no books to buy, but folks are encouraged to bring a pen, their Bible of choice, and a snack to be shared (It does not have to be much). Coffee and tea will be provided. Talk to Rachel Lewis if you have questions or are planning to attend.
