Missions

We believe that glorifying God through worship, service and Christian fellowship are the essential elements of a Christian life. Huffman offers a variety of ways to help you best give glory to God’s presence in your life. Check out our other missions pages to see all of the ways that we are not only making a difference hands-on in our community and beyond, but helping support others in their missions.

Huffman UMC also serves as a gathering place in the community for events such as our Halloween Carnival, Easter Egg Hunt and Yard Sale/BBQ/Car Wash!

FOOD INSECURITY (not knowing where your next meal is coming from) is RIGHT HERE IN OUR HUFFMAN COMMUNITY. Your mission team can testify to this first hand and perhaps many of you can as well. This is HEART BREAKING. With God’s guidance and His blessings, HUMC continues to answer the call of helping those that are hungry. Your donations for ‘Change the World’ helps the Society of St. Andrew provide food to those that are hungry. Our weekend backpack ministry is currently supporting 65 students at Martha Gaskins Elementary. Many of you volunteer at our community food pantry and clothes closet, EACM. We still need your help in meeting our goal of 250 food items for EACM each month. We continue to pray that God will help each of us REMEMBER to bring our EACM food item so that the food bins will overflow and the shelves of EACM will be full.    


Now the season of Lent is here again. This means we have another way to help those that are hungry. You see all of the children at our two community elementary schools, Martha Gaskins and Huffman Academy are enrolled in the national school lunch program. Your mission team feels God’s tug on their hearts to once again provide LITTLE BROWN BAGS to these students for their Spring Break.    

Please PRAY for these students and families and we ask for your SUPPORT of God’s LITTLE BROWN BAG ministry. This year in order to give each student at Martha Gaskins and Huffman Academy Elementary a LBB we will need 1,370 bags. Once again this year looks again we will be able to purchase a few of our snacks through the Community Food Bank which will allow us to reduce the cost of our bags to approximately $4.00 which means we estimate total donations of $5,485.31. God continues to bless HUMC and He has given us some funds that are left from our 2017 LBB ministry so that will give us a GREAT start for 2018.    


Our goal chart will once again be set up in the narthex so you can check each week on our progress. Our goal is to secure all funding by Sunday, March 11th in order to allow us to buy our items and begin our stuffing parties. Monetary donations are preferred but we also welcome item donations up until Sunday, March 7th. This year’s contents are 100% juice boxes, instant oatmeal packets, nurtigrain breakfast bars, cheese crackers, crunchy granola bars, rice krispie treats, pudding cups and (plastic) fruit cups (no metal cups please), boxed macaroni & cheese, fruit snacks and slim jim beef jerky sticks. Item donations may be dropped off in the Welcome Center.


As Uncle Sam says, ‘We NEED you’…We need your monetary donations, your help stuffing, your help delivering and your help giving out bags. So let your mission team know where you can help out. Please ‘stay tuned’ for more information about specific dates and times.    


It is because of YOUR generous love, care and monetary giving that HUMC can answer these calls. Your mission team thanks you for your outpouring of God’s love and answering His call to give generously. Thank you God for using HUMC and allowing us to EMBRACE OUR COMMUNITY THROUGH THE TRANSFORMATIVE LOVE OF CHRIST.
