This is how we know love: Jesus laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. But if someone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but refuses to help—how can the love of God dwell in a person like that?
1 John 3:16-17 (Common English Bible)
At Hanna United Methodist Church, we care about people and the quality of their lives. We recognize that suffering exists in many forms yet we know that God's love in Jesus Christ is more powerful than any problem or circumstance that life may throw at us. We seek to show God's powerful love through acts of mercy and compassion. Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world and we know that transformation, change, is possible because God promises it and we have experienced it. Through the missions we support and our own mission work locally, we seek to bring God's healing and hope to people who suffer. Whether it is supporting missionaries in far off lands or working at the local food pantry, women's shelter, or ministering in the prison we live God's love through compassionate service.
God has gifted all of us with talents and skills, with compassionate hearts, and with a sense of justice so that we can relieve suffering and demonstrate God's love. Join with us and make a difference in someone's life and join us in praying for this transformative work in the world.
Here are some of the missions we support:
