New Worship Times at Hotchkiss and Paonia Starting  Sunday, July 4th


Effective July 4th, Hotchkiss Community UMC will meet for worship at 9:30 a.m. Adult Sunday school with Rev. Josh will meet in Hotchkiss 8:30-9:30 a.m. on Sundays in Stewart Hall. All are welcome.



Hotchkiss Bible Study Sunday with Pastor Josh at 8:30 a.m in Stewart Hall, church basement. We will meet downstairs for discussion, study, and reflection on the scripture reading that we will be using in worship. This study will give us a little more time to understand the historical context and meaning of the scripture passage than can usually happen during the sermon. I hope you will join us. 

Hotchkiss Hangout Resumes Sunday, July 11th — Stay after worship in Hotchkiss for a time of fellowship and light refreshments in Stewart Hall. This is a great opportunity for fellowship with fellow church members. 




Ten Commandments Book/Video Study starts May 18, 2021

At the request of some of our church members, we will study Adam Hamilton’s new book Words of Life: Jesus and the Promise of the Ten Commandments Today. This 10-session book and video study will meet at 11:30 a.m.,Tuesdays, starting May 18th. We will meet in person in the Paonia UMC fellowship hall. This should allow us enough space to view the video together while still physically distancing.  You may email him at jlhpastor@gmail.com for more information.


Hotchkiss Children’s Sunday School resumes July 25. Children will begin worship in the sanctuary and then head to their classroom downstairs after the Story for All Ages. 


Hotchkiss Vacation Bible School will be Aug. 8 in the afternoon and Aug. 9-11 in the early evening. Mark your calendars and watch for opportunities to get involved. This is a great way to learn, share and celebrate the last days of summer break before school resumes.


Church Retreat at Grand Mesa Camp –Hotchkiss Community UMC will host a church retreat September 3 and 4 at Grand Mesa Camp. Mark your calendars and plan to join us for this overnight retreat. We will enjoy God’s creation while worshipping, praying, and sharing together.
