Over the last few months, you might have noticed something new in the News & Happenings. As a way to inform and encourage engagement in missional opportunities, the Monthly Mission Spotlight was created. Since its launch, Interfaith Hospitality Network, the Romania Partnership, and Habitat for Humanity has been featured. Each week, new information is shared regarding that particular ministry for the month and also gives specific ways people can get involved. After Interfaith Hospitality Network was featured, 10 new people served in some way during our last host week in March!
The mission of our church is a commitment to share the love of Jesus to transform lives, Cincinnati, and the world. Our hope at Hyde Park Community is that each person can find a meaningful way to serve that connects people’s passions and gifts to needs of the community and world. My relationship with Jesus became real when I had my first invitation to serve alongside others. My faith continues to grow as I put my discipleship into action and I find that the life that is most changed is not the people I’m serving with, but it is my own.
If there is a stirring in you to go deeper in your discipleship through service, I would love to meet with you! The monthly mission spotlight scratches the surface of all the ways one can use their gifts. With the variety of ways to get involved and serve, I believe there is a great fit for each person.
Finally, thank you to all who are already serving and being the church! Your passion, energy, and commitment is amazing and I’m beyond thankful for your ministry to the church, community, and world. Let’s continue to bring the Kingdom of God closer!
