Our Mission & Vision
Holmes Street is a welcoming Christian community that helps people grow as disciples through a process of inviting, gathering for worship, growing through small groups, and going out to serve persons in need.
Coming together as God's people for worship and fellowship is at the heart of Holmes Street UMC's ministry. We seek to make Sunday worship services welcoming to all by offering a combination of traditional and contemporary elements.
Fellowship opportunities abound at Holmes Street UMC including Wednesday suppers, covered dish suppers, Sunday School socials, exercise groups, ladies groups, and Tuesday Alive lucheons.
Growing closer to God and growing in our relationship with Christ helps us grow in our ability to love others. Holmes Street UMC's educational programs for adult, youth and children offer every member opportunities to build and strengthen their spiritual life.
Holmes Street UMC has a rich tradition of outreach and service to others.Our annual budget always contains contributions to local charities. Additionally, special offerings are taken throughout the year to provide assistance to people in crisis.
Members also enjoy the benefits of offering direct service to others using their time and talents. Recent Holmes Street UMC service projects include construction and renovation of homes and churches, delivering Meals-On-Wheels, maintaining a food pantry and assisting in the set up of a shelter for homeless families.
Holmes Street also seeks to be a good neighbor by hosting Old Town Meetings, sponsoring local blood drives, coordinating an Easter Egg Hunt, and welcoming all to a Christmas Open House with a live nativity scene.
