We have two groups that work to use their crafting skills to serve those in our community.
The Prayer Shawl Group creates and donates knitted or crocheted items to those in our community who are experiencing loss, are in transition, or going through trauma or illness.
The Pillowcase Group makes pillowcases for children in transition (foster care, etc), the homeless community, our veterans, and other groups whose needs are still being determined.

Food insecurity in Montgomery County involves more than 15% of the population (about 28,000 people). The percentage for children is 21.5%, a third of whom are not income-eligible for federal programs such as free school lunches. For this reason, our goal is to first meeting people’s basic need for food, and then guide them toward positive, permanent change.
Mana Café is a wonderful place to donate & volunteer. Fill out the form below to help eliminate hunger in all ages...

Moore Magnet Elementary School
Hilldale UMC began in 1954 at Moore School right down the street. We are building a strategic relationship with Moore School, which is now Moore Magnet Elementary School (S.T.E.M.), to help them with reading buddies, lunchroom monitors, clothes closet donations, F.U.E.L. bags, and the list goes on. We are very excited to be involved in our community in such a tangible way as to impact the lives of the children who surround our church on a regular basis.
