Worship with us this Lent Season

First Sunday in Lent Worship Service

Sunday, February 18th @11am



At First UMC of Hanford an important part of our worship experience is our music. With the leadership of our Music Director Cavan O’Neill the choir sings regularly at 11 a.m. Sundays Worship Service. Rehearsal is Sunday mornings at 9: 45 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Our church is blessed to have a congregation that actively participates in the liturgy through music and prayer. The choir and church family are one body of voices singing praise to God. We invite you to join us as we “sing and make music for the Lord all the days of our lives.” (Ps.27)

During the season of Lent, we will host a time for fellowship and studying God’s Word which will be focused on the Depths of Love. We will meet five times during the season of Lent on Wednesday evenings from 6pm-7:30pm. Starting February 21st

We hope you come to join us for a time of gathering around the table to fellowship and study God’s Word. Don’t forget to invite a friend!


This Lent season reminded us that we need to demonstrate compassion to others now more than ever. Lent is a good time to commit to giving money to a project that helps those in need. One way to involve the whole family is to collect coins during the season of Lent and then following Easter, donate the money.  Follow our Coins for Lent Giving Calendar as a guide.The money that will be collected will go to LAUNDRY LOVE ministry.

Worship with First UMC Online 11 am every Sunday!

“The power of Prayer”

Prayer is a conversation with God (silent or speaking out loud) about anything at anytime and anywhere. You don’t need to use big or fancy words; just be honest and sincere.  Pray whenever you need to talk with God. Praise God; thank Him for what He has done; tell Him how you feel; ask God for what you need; confess what you’ve done wrong. “Don’t worry about anything, instead , pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”Philippians 4:6

Mark 8:31-38

Jesus Predicts His Death

31 He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. 32 He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.
