110 Year Celebration
Hygiene United Methodist Church is celebrating 110 years of service. This little church formed as folks gathering in their homes for worship. In 1904 an acre of land was purchased for $200. In December 1905, pews were in place and the church was dedicated on January 21, 1906 by Bishop W.R. Warren. At that time there were 26 members, and 60 in Sunday school.
It's now 110 years later, and Hygiene is the heart of its community. With 87 members, Hygiene reaches out to their community in several ways. From our annual community dinners (Hobo Dinner which started in the 1950's, and the St. Patrick's dinner) serving meals at the O.U.R. Center, to collecting hats and mittens for the Hygiene Elementary. In 2013 we served as a meal shelter for the families and workers that were affected by the flood.
Hygiene UMC remains to be the heart of its community. A place of haven. A place of fellowship.
Please join us as celebrate 110 years of loving service.
