The Work of the People

The word liturgy, is derived from the ancient Greek term (λειτουργία), leitourgia, which means "work of the people" and is a literal translation of the two words "litos ergos" or "public service".  In the church, liturgy is the customary public worship performed by a religious group, according to its beliefs, customs and traditions.  Here at HFUMC that means "the people", the laity of the church are significantly involved in designing and preparing for all worship.  We believe worship is more meaningful when it emerges from the community, calls the community and engages the community.

Community Worship

Members of our faith community participate in all services of worship as liturgist, acolytes, ushers, alter stewards and in drama and choir.

Worship Team

Those with a heart for worship are invited to participate in the planning and design of regular and special worship services.  Participation is open to all members.

Our Common Liturgy

If you join us for worship you will be invited to participate in the liturgy of our community.  Commonly each Sunday we pray the Lords Prayer and confess the Apostles Creed.  Both will be, as well as others when substituted, printed in the bulletin you receive before worship.
