Service. Love. Commitment.
The Bible tells us in John 3:16 that, God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him won't perish but will have eternal life. God's promise of eternal life means we will always have a place in God's heart, that there will never be a time when we are forgotten or away from the presence of God, and that Jesus' life and death is not the end of all things. God's love is more powerful than anything, even death. God invites each of us to believe in Jesus and his good news of saving love, grace, and forgiveness.
In Proverbs 16:3 we discover a powerful message, "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans."
Parents' Day Out
Hamilton UMC Parents' Day Out offers a Christian environment in which children can work and play happily together. The program was established in 1979 by members of Hamilton United Methodist Church as an outreach ministry and service to our community. Our vision is to meet the needs of the community by providing a child care service for pre-school age children. We strive to prepare them for public school while emphasizing our Christian beliefs as the foundation for our children. We offer two separate programs. One meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays, while the other meets on Wednesdays and Fridays. Our day begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 2:00 p.m. For information regarding Parents' Day Out, please contact the church office at (615) 361-7210
Second Harvest Food
Hamilton UMC hosts one of the busiest Second Harvest Emergency Food Bank Sites in Middle Tennessee. We are open on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-6 and Saturdays from 9-12. Clients should bring printed proof of address such as a utility bill and some form of government-issued ID (birth certificate, social security card, passport, tenncare, student ID, etc.) for each person in their household each time they wish to collect food.
Room in the Inn
Hamilton UMC and Providence UMC join together to host a dozen homeless persons each Saturday night from November 1 through March 30. We provide a hot dinner, a safe and warm sleeping environment, bathing facilities, a hot breakfast and a bagged lunch upon their departure the next morning.
This annual celebration of the birth of Christ is celebrated in December. Twelve tableaux from the Christmas story are presented as cars travel the outlined route.
Operation Christmas Child
Each year in October and early November, we gather Christmas gift boxes for children around the world through Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of The Samaritan’s Purse.
