What's Ahead at Hughes UMC

* The Jesus Fatwah:  Love Your (Muslim) Neighbor as Yourself
Much of what passes as information about Islam is weed-like disinformation rooted in stereotype and watered by fear.  This offering from Living the Questions is a 5-session, DVD-based program in which Islamic and Christian scholars offer reliable information about what Muslims believe, and how we all can be about building relationships across the lines of faith. This group will meet Monday evenings at 7 p.m.  Call the church for details.

* Our Annual Fall Church Retreat will be November 13-15, 2015 at the Penn National Inn in Fayetteville, Pennsylvania - just 90 miles from Wheaton. Rev. Carletta Allen, a former Associate Pastor from Hughes and now the Senior Pastor at Asbury UMC will lead us in the spiritual disciplines. Download more information about the 2015 Retreat here.

Prayer Requests

As a community of faith we offer our prayers of celebration and joy, prayers of discernment and wisdom, as well as our prayers of concern and struggle to God. By faith we believe God hears and responds to all our prayers. 


Prayers will be shared with the pastor and the prayer group who are bound in a covenant of confidentiality. Requests will not be shared during public prayer time unless you ask us to share them with the entire congregation. You are invited to offer your prayers here.
