The people say...
"I love the encouraging atmosphere at FUMC Hammond. Worshiping with other members of the body of Christ allows a feeling of peace and serenity while singing His praise. I am involved in many committees of the church because I enjoy the relationships that have grown out of this fellowship. Through these committees, serving the community with my church family has allowed me to see God's work at hand. A seemingly small gesture done in God's love can affect someone in ways we cannot imagine." MG

"I love FUMC Hammond because I can just be myself and the church still loves me at ; there are no conditions." EL


Reverend Donakey's and Cheryl's daughter Miranda is attending Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas. As Miranda explores a call to ministry, among other options, she is part of a group on campus which travels in teams to area churches and lead worship services. 
On April 12th, Miranda's team went to Hunter, Arkansas and the following letter was received the next week. Congratulations Miranda on your first sermon and a job well done!
