Gratitude Brings Blessings--

Haddonfield United Methodist Church

The Haddonfield United Methodist Church, since its inception in 1829, has grown from a gathering of a few in the Grove Schoolhouse to a congregation of over 2000 in our fifth and present home at 29 Warwick Road. Our members come from 57 towns in South Jersey. We have survived an earthquake and several fires, yet after each disaster we emerge stronger than before. We are a big church with a small church friendliness. We sponsor activities for all ages and have dozens of ways of serving from missions, ministries, choirs, small group study, and more. Our new addition was completed in 2008 and has enabled us to expand our ministry with new classrooms for Christian education, a beautiful music suite and new reception and welcome center. In 2009 we celebrated more than 180 years of Christian fellowship and worshipping God in the Methodist tradition established by John Wesley over 250 years ago. Because we believe that one size doesn't fit all, HUMC provides four Worship Services each weekend.

  • Saturdays at 5 p.m. in the chapel (casual service)
  • Sundays at 8 a.m. in the chapel (traditional service)
  • Sundays at 9 a.m. in the sanctuary (contemporary service)
  • Sundays at 10:15 a.m. in the sanctuary (traditional service)

In 2007 the Auxiliary Police were honored with the Alfred E. Driscoll Award for outstanding community service. Each year Auxiliary Officers provide almost 1,000 hours of volunteer service. They function as court bailiffs, and direct traffic at town events such as Fire Prevention Night and the Fall Festival. Members also provide crowd control at high school football and basketball games, numerous parades and 1st Night Celebration. Auxiliary Officers also carry out uniformed, foot and bicycle patrol in the business district during Candle Light Shopping; summer-time Friday night concerts; and furnish security for the summer Craft Fair. Auxiliary Officers are trained to respond to local emergencies, natural disasters and assist the Camden County Fire Police.

Various training seminars are conducted by qualified members of the Haddonfield Police Department. Some officers take optional classes at the Camden County Police Academy. All officers are instructed in basic law enforcement protocol, radio communications, police vehicle operations, self defense, and baton and pepper spray tactics. Officers also remain current with their first-aid and CPR certifications.

Members are expected to provide eight combined hours of service/training per month.
