A cooperative fellowship of United Methodist (and one Baptist) churches in the Candler, NC / Hominy Valley community, the HV Missional Network creates service and worship opportunities that would not be possible by any one church alone.
Current regular projects include:
Hominy Valley VBS – Normally held in early July, this event is an outreach opportunity for kids who may not know the joy of life in Christ. Together we provide snacks, set-up, nurture, and witness to kids from all over the Candler, NC area.
Hominy Valley UMM – For many years now, the United Methodist Men of this community have worked together to support important ministries in the community. This strong tradition continues today. Regular meetings rotate through area churches and occur on 5th Sundays @ 7:30am with breakfast.
Hominy Valley Energy Savers – This newly organized group is making efforts to have a positive impact on our planet and our community by providing easy, cost effective energy saving measures for those of fewer means. These projects include replacing light bulbs, installing aerators and low-flow flushing systems, and minor insulation and caulking.
Hominy Valley Opioid Taskforce – Recently undertaken to combat the staggering effects of opioids in our area. We are still currently in talks about various events (educational & practical) that we can undertake.
Combined / Community Worship – Each year, we join together as the nine congregations in Hominy Valley for worship in celebration of God’s gifts to our community. These events usually happen twice a year: Palm Sunday and a Sunday in October. Thus far, these events have helped solidify our unity and build the success of ministering together in this community.
