Camp Scholarships Available

Did you know our annual conference has three summer camps (Greene Hills, Wesley Forrest, and Camp Penn) and a retreat center (Mt Asbury)? The three Susquehanna Conference camps offer one week overnight camps for children and youth finishing grades 2-12. Plus, a few parent/child and grandparent/child camps for younger kids! In addition to the three Susquehanna Conference camps, there are also two camps near us in other conferences: Pocono Plateau and Sky Lake.

Church camp played a significant role in my own faith formation as a camper at the UM camp in Maine, so I am passionate about sending children and youth to camp. I encourage you to look at your summer calendar and consider sending your campers to one of our church camps this summer. The church, through endowment funds, will cover 50% (up to $200) for one week of camp per HUMC camper at Greene Hills, Wesley Forrest, Camp Penn, Sky Lake, or Pocono Plateau. 

Send an email to or to request a scholarship. Please include camper name, camp site, week and total cost. 

Volunteers Needed for Summer Movie Nights!

Pantry Update:
The Bridge... 


Traffic on a bridge goes both ways. Pedestrians stop in the middle to greet each other. Food, stories, faith, and friendship are exchanged via the bridge. It connects people to others. The pantry team is excited about the image of a bridge that becomes a nourishing, cooperative partnership between the congregation and the community. Honestly, we have no idea what this bridge looks like, but we hope you will join us in the excitement and possibilities ahead in 2021. 


Honduras Needs Our Help


We have established a fund to help our friends in Honduras who are suffering from the effects of COVID-19. Our ministry partner, MDM, is seeking help to bring desperately needed food and medicine to the residents of San Matias.  The country has been in lockdown for weeks and the government’s travel restrictions, make it difficult, if not impossible, to reach the outlying villages.  The local leaders have found a vendor that will assist in bringing food to the mountain.  Please consider making a donation to HUMC and earmark it to MDM COVID-19 Response Fund for this purpose.
