Crisis Management ministry

HUCC joins our city and country in caring for the safety and wellness of our beloved church family and community.  

After much thought and deliberation, prayers and consultation, Howard’s leadership has made the decision to temporarily suspend church services and activities until the CDC gives the "all clear" for gatherings post-pandemic.

We will continue to be accessible for the Spiritual needs of our congregation.  

You can call the church office at any time.


Please consider the guidelines below for your personal and life care decisions and check them often for information updates:

  • Wash your hands immediately after coughing, sneezing or touching your nose, or if you have been in a public place.If you don’t have soap and water, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
  • Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose and mouth.

  • Do not shake hands or fist bump with other people.
  • Stay away from people who are sick.  If you are sick, stay home! If you must go to the doctor or be around other people, wear a face mask.

more CDC Guidelines

NOTE: If you are not sick, you do NOT need to wear a face mask unless you are caring for someone who is sick and is unable to wear one themselves. We must reserve essential materials for healthcare providers who need them.

Clean and disinfect all frequently touched surfaces and items like tables, countertops, doorknobs, light switches, desks, phones, toilet seats, faucets, toys and remote controls.

Put at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and others to avoid the person-to-person spread.
