December Monthly Outreach

Ministry Outreach Focus for December

Adopt Kids for Christmas


Our Outreach focus for this month is sponsoring families for Christmas. According to the local Family Resource Coordinators (HES, BCMS, BCHS), there are several families in need of assistance this year. If you are interested in adopting a child or a family for Christmas and purchasing gifts* for them, please contact the Church Office. If you prefer to make a monetary donation*, please mark your check or offering envelope “Christmas Gifts.” The average cost per child will be between $50-$75.


* Gifts and monetary donations need to be at Church by Thursday, December 9.


Local Cancer Care Assistance Fund

We are collecting gift cards: Gas, Food, WalMart, etc.(this will help with the cost for them to travel and get their radiation, chemo, Dr. appointments, food and basic needs. If you want to make a donation please mark on an envelope or on the memo of your check Local Cancer Care.


Blessing Box Ministry

Blessing Boxes are appearing all over the United States. They are being erected by churches, businesses and individuals. A Blessing Box is an emergency standalone miniature food pantry. In pursuit of community outreach, the Hardinsburg United Methodist Church has erected a Community Blessing Box. HUMC is grateful to Mr. Larry Welch, a member of the congregation, who crafted the Blessing Box using reclaimed wood from the church’s former main entrance. For protection from the weather, the Blessing Box is located under the porch of Memorial Hall, facing the street. The box is never locked and contents are available 24/7 to anyone.

The Blessing Box is for anyone who experiences need when other resources are not available. The contents of the Blessing Box are donated by the congregation, although anyone in the community is welcomed and encouraged to donate. Non-perishable items which will withstand high and low temperatures are the best selections. The stock will vary from day to day according to use and donation. Sometimes there may be a full pantry, and sometimes not; but the hope is that there will always be something there for someone who is hungry. TAKE WHAT YOU NEED, LEAVE WHAT YOU CAN. LITTLE BECOMES MUCH IN THE MASTER’S HAND. 

Soapy Second Sunday Every Month 


Proverbs 11:25 A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.


Once a month, on the second Sunday, HUMC collects cleaning products for distribution through the Good Samaritan Center. This is a community mission outreach that anyone can participate in by just picking up that extra bar of soap, dish or clothes detergent, shampoo, etc. Please place your donations on the table near the Serenity Room. A hearty thanks to you all.
