Come and Worship With Us

Worship:  9:00 a.m. Sunday

On October 11, we returned to in person worship.  You can still view the recorded worship service on the website of our sister church in Janesville at: http://janesvilleunitedmethodistchurch.weebly.com/

Sunday Service

Hudson UMC provides meaningful traditional worship experiences for all ages.

Music is a vital ingredient of all worship services with hymns of the time period and from the past.

Sermons are biblically based.  A greeting time is included to extend the peace of the Lord to each other.  Additionally, there is an opportunity to share Joys and Concerns during the service.

Holy Communion

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is administered the first Sunday of each month and other select times through the year for all who profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  We practice an open communion.

Lay Involvement

The laity is an important part of worship!  From the moment you enter the church you will be greeted  at the door by a lay person. As you enter Fellowship Hall there will be numerous persons to extend welcome.  Children’s sermons are led at various times by laity and clergy.  Joys and Concerns and Prayers of the People are led by laity.

There is an old saying in our congregation that wherever two or more United Methodists are gathered there must food!    That is certainly true following Sunday service.  Planned by the UMW but enlisting the help of men and women, Coffee Fellowship time most Sundays also boasts treats of some sort.  The Fellowship time offers a chance for all ages to come together and visit.

Video Ministry

Started in the 1980s, worship services are broadcast on the local Hudson Cable channel 15 or 79.2 (Mediacom). A dedicated group takes turn creating the DVDs and taking the DVD to City Hall on Sunday evening for shut-ins and others in the community to view.

These DVDs can be checked out by contacting the church office.

Altar Guild

Decorating for the seasons is done by a group of talented church members who create banners and altar displays.

Stained Glass Windows

Established in 2008, a committee has been exploring the installation of stained glass windows in the church’s sanctuary through memorial gifts or in honor.  Currently, twenty-four panels depicting Holy Week, the Nativity, the Ten Commandments, and God’s Covenant through Noah and the Ark, the Sacraments of Baptism and Communion are in place as well as three windows in Fellowship Hall showing the Praying Hands, Dove of Peace, and Resurrection Butterfly.  Windows are a representation of our faith.

Additional windows will depict the Parable of the Feeding of the Multitude.
