First , we must take a moment to thank all the volunteers that came out in August and helped us clean the building so that our children will feel welcomed and loved…because they are! We are READY for our children to return to our after school program starting on September 13th.
Since the summer camp ended at the end of July, we took a quick minute for a breather and went right back to preparing programs for this fall that will assist the children in many ways. Continue reading
Please join us as we celebrate the beginning of the fall 2021 school year at HLWM. Last year presented many challenges for our children but we continue to provide services to our children and families during this unprecedented time. As the school year begins, we want to make our programs the best they can be for our children, staff and community.
During the month of September, please consider helping us achieve that goal by contributing your time or financial contribution and most importantly prayers to begin the school year on the best possible note.

These group of amazing Badin High School students (now grads) created and painted this beautiful mural for their Servant Leadership Project. Now everyone that walks through our doors will see their beautiful artwork. Thank you Elaina Jackson, Logan Hage, Sam Schutter, Grace Harris and Paige Long. We are ALL going to miss you and appreciate all of the time you spent with us!
Thank you to St. Mark’s UMC youth group and everyone that came out to support our children’s programs! These youth gave their time to help us serve others and our community.

We had a critical issue with one of our office computers and thought it would take an hour or so to fix. Well it turned out to be a much larger issue than any of us could of imagined. We want to thank Floyd for sticking with it until the issue was corrected. Continue reading
