Last Sunday's Sermon: May 24, 2015 - Happy Birthday! - Rev. Susannah Grubbs Carr
The mission of Africa University is to provide quality education through which persons can acquire general and professional knowledge and skills; grow in spiritual maturity; develop sound moral values, ethics, and leadership qualities.
We now have an opportunity to continue that support and to help assure the future of Africa University. The great need today is for endowments which will serve the University now and in the future. Bishop Swanson has designated our Annual Conference Mission Offering for the 2015 Annual Conference Session to help continue this important work on behalf of our denomination. This offering will enable us to endow scholarships from up to one day to one full year for students attending this fine University.
We will take this missional offering on Sunday May 31st during our worship service, and we will take it proudly to Annual Conference and present it during the Mission Service. You may also send your offering to the church office any time between now and June 1 by putting “Conference Mission Offering” on the memo line.
The Mississippi Conference Missions Committee is excited to announce that they will once again be hosting an online auction to benefit United Methodist Missions in Mississippi. As with the past two years, you and your church are invited to participate by donating items to the auction.
The auction will open May 4th and close June 5th at noon. Auction items will be on display at the 2015 Session of Annual Conference in Jackson but bidding will all be online and open to everyone.

Come worship with us! There is a place for you!
I would like to personally invite you to come and see what God is up to here at Hawkins through joining us for worship and other special events that we offer throughout the week and the year. Being disciples of Jesus Christ means that we take seriously our role as ambassadors for Christ in the world around us, and we believe that God gives us all a special gift to share with the body of believers.
We hope the information you find here is helpful to visitors and to our members alike. If we can help you in any way, please contact us by phone or email. There is a place here for you! May God bless you today and every day!
Peace in the midst,
Susannah Grubbs Carr
