We will use this place to post ideas and resources for the people of Hilldale to continue to find ways to BE the Church even while we are separate!
Check out the details below!
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD EVENT It is time to get moving again with our Operation Christmas Child ministry. Mark your calendar for our next event on Wednesday, May 27th from 10:00 to 4:00. It is a drive up, pick up day! Everyone will be able to stop by Heritage Hall and select some activities to complete at home. You will be able to select crafts projects or preparation activities. It is time to make some foam crafts, bead people, un-package items such as yo-yos and toy airplanes, fold t-shirts, and a vast variety of projects. We will adhere to proper distancing protocols such as masks, social distancing and limiting the number of people in the space at one time.
The drop off day for returning projects will be Wednesday, June 10th from 10:00 to 4:00 at Heritage Hall.
URGENT NEED FOR BLOOD DONATION The local chapter of the American Red Cross is in desperate need of blood donations. Please visit
URGENT NEED FOR FACE MASKS There is an urgent need for face masks!! Rev. Carol Miller, pastor of the Yellow Creek Charge in Dickson has made over 100 masks and has requests for more. She is asking for help in making these masks. Rev. Phoebe Jowers, pastor of Mt. Zion UMC, has also been making masks. She has been sending masks to a nurse friend at LeBonheur in Memphis. You can help!
F.U.E.L. MINISTRY IN CLARKSVILLE There are needs in our community that we still must meet. F.U.E.L. is making bags and Hilldale is hosting! Please check out this link to find out ways you can help! F.U.E.L. Bag Packing and Donations
URBAN MINISTRIES will be coordinating take home food with other agencies. Please donate non-perishable food to UM at 217 Third Street. You do not need to come into the building, someone will come out and pick it up from their car. The phone number is 648-9090. There is parking in front of the office labeled Loading Zone.
SEND CARDS OR OTHER POINTS OF CONTACT Our shut-ins, older congregation members, and most vulnerable are going through this quarantine, too. The difference? They have even less contact than most. We would love for your families to find creative ways to show love to these members of our Hilldale family. Send cards, color pictures, drive by and wave! Imagine the creative ways your family could BE the Church during this time. If you'd like names and addresses, please contact us at email@example.com.
GROCERY SHOPPING Some of our most vulnerable members cannot safely shop for groceries in the way that they are accustomed. Are you willing to shop for someone and deliver to them? Or help with online orders for delivery, or deliver pre-ordered pick ups? This would be a great way to help our Hilldale family. **We ask that only those who are NOT part of a vulnerable group or age bracket volunteer for this ministry area**
