Safe Nights

HUMC hosts one week during the winter months.

2019 Date TBD

The Safe Nights program is dedicated to protecting the homeless from the cold by providing shelter in a clean and safe environment.  As a Host shelter, HUMC provides a cot and three nutritious meals (breakfast, dinner and a bag lunch).   The warm meals offer an opportunity to really connect and be the light of Christ to our homeless neighbors.

Project Echo

Help us prepare or coordinate meals the 2nd Friday of each month.

Project Echo is a transitional shelter. The aim is to create a living area where the residents can take time out from surviving and focus on getting their lives in order in a safe, drug and alcohol free environment so they can move on to being productive and happy members of society. HUMC has a long-standing partnership with Project Echo, and one of our missions is to provide meals to approximately 40 Project Echo residents once a month.

Calvert Community Food Pantry

Food Collection Date: First Sunday of the month at HUMC (Non- perishable food items)

The Calvert Churches Community Food Pantry, Inc., (CCCFP) is a Christian out- reach ministry providing food for the needy in our community.  CCCFP collaborates with many churches in the area to stock their shelves. The outpouring of donations provides nourishment to those who struggle to make ends meet.

Hearts and Souls  Garden

We provide fresh food for the hungry with the land that God has entrusted to us as a church. The garden is located adjacent to the parsonage on Hunting Creek Road.  Families, individuals and other church groups are invited to help with planting, tending, and harvesting the garden. The harvest from the garden (usually potatoes and turnips) provides fresh vegetables to the food pantries in Calvert County.

If you’d like to help with planting, maintenance or harvesting, please contact Lester Weir
