We are a group of people who have agreed to pray everyday for submitted prayer requests. At this time we have 18 people who pray. Anyone can be a prayer partner, but we request that you sign a covenant promising to pray every day. Covenant forms are available in the church office if you want to be a part of this life-changing ministry. We would love to welcome more prayer partners to join us.
Each prayer partner prays for about 10 people since we divide the requests between 4 teams of prayer partners. We also meet once a month to pray together over all the prayer requests.
Prayer requests can be submitted in the offering plate using the green pew cards, or simply call the church office or contact any of the prayer partners.
This group meets twice a month to share their spiritual walk
together. Through prayer, conversation, and support, a bond is
formed and strengthened over time. New members are accepted at
different times during the year. Sharon Peterson, a licensed
Spiritual Director and member of MHUCC leads this group.
Join this group on the first Friday of each month for a potluck
dinner beginning at 6:30pm, a great film selection, and a discussion

In addition to the many different educational opportunities at
MHUCC, we have an adult bible study group that meets every Sunday at
9 a.m. to study and dive deeper into the Bible. Currently, the
group is using the UCC’s “Weekly Seeds” series to study the
lectionary selections for each Sunday. This group is
facilitated by Marybeth Holliday and each class is led by a
volunteer. New members are always welcome.
On the second Monday of every month (with a break in the summer),
follow the sounds of laughter and sewing machines whirring and you
will find this group of volunteers in Fellowship Hall creating
beautiful quilts for veterans, shut-ins, and members and friends in
the hospital. Even if you don’t know how to sew, we will find
a job for you in the creation of these quilts. Material Aid
welcomes new members throughout the year.
The world has changed a great deal since the time this group first formed almost 100 years ago at what is now Mission Hills United Church of Christ. What has not changed is this group’s commitment to mission, spirituality, fellowship, and service. Awarding annual scholarships to members attending college, working with El Nido to provide an apartment, furniture, and household goods to a woman and her children who have escaped from a life of abuse, and hosting prayer breakfasts are just a few of the activities that this group sponsors.
