The Advent wreath is a Christmas tradition. It comes from a time when people used to light candles on wreaths as a sign of hope for the light that would soon return in the springtime.
At some point, this practice was adopted by Christians to help us prepare for the birth of Christ, who is the light of the world.
This year, we want to invite you to participate in this tradition. Pick up your copy of our Advent Devotional at church or download it online. Each week, we'll explore the different candles of Advent and what it really means to spread the light of hope, peace, joy, love, and ultimately, the light of Christ.

Ben Malcolmson: Faith, purpose, and perseverance

Words have power

While we can’t resist the power of words, we believe we CAN figure out how to deal with them, and how to use them well.
HPUMC is hosting former Dallas Police Chief, David Brown, as well as a panel of four other people, most of whom are from our community, on Monday, November 18 at 7:00 pm in Wesley Hall to discuss the power of words and how they are influencing and impacting our children.

235 students attended HPUMC's Youth's Big Breakfast yesterday! 🍳 🥞 🥓

Each semester, these students go through the stresses of school, midterms, and sports, and sometimes what they need most is a chance to reconnect with each other and live in the moment. Thank you to everyone who took the time to give our youth a much-needed breather!

Please, take a moment and help us wish our own, Rev. Paul Rasmussen a Happy Birthday?! 🎂🎉 We're so blessed to have him as our Senior Minister and we hope he has another great year.

Its story time at HPUMC today! We love when we get to share these moments reading with our kiddos. A huge thank you to Rev. Rasmussen for spending a part of his afternoon reading to the Rising Stars Book Club!

Getting Over a Grudge (Paul Rasmussen)

In life, you deal with situations that you might not agree with and can't seem to let go of. Don't let these moments weigh you down, rise above them because your life is too short and callings are too great to be distracted by them.
