The United Church of Hinesburg, with roots in the American Baptist, United Church of Christ and United Methodist churches, welcomes visitors and participants from all faith backgrounds into our community. You do not need to be an official member of the congregation to attend services or volunteer with our social service programs.
Music in March
The United Church of Hinesburg music program is a valuable part of our faith community. Our musical accompaniment and active choir have guided us in worship. We’ve also been fortunate to have many guest musicians offer their unique styles for special services like Jazz Sunday, Churchtoberfest and Easter Sunday Brass.
In March, we have special music planned for each of the first four Sundays in the month. In order to continue to provide a wide variety of music artists and style, and to keep our choir singing on our current schedule, we are looking to you during Music in March to support the music program in 2019.
At the back of the church and in the Parish Hall you will find envelopes labeled with dollar amounts from $1-$100.
• Choose an envelope with the dollar amount you would like to donate,
• Fill it with the dollar amount on the envelope, either by check or cash (include your name if you wish to have your donation recorded for the UCH 2019 year-end statement),
• Place your envelope in the offering plate, drop it off in the church office or send it by mail by March 24th.
If all the envelopes are returned, the music program will be fully funded for the rest of the year.
