Welcome to our first Sunday during Month of Missions! Click HERE to watch the service. During November, we take the opportunity to update you on what has happened in missions over the past year and tell you about the ways you can step into missions in the upcoming year. Missions is not just a month long initiative, but instead a year long opportunity for us to pray, go, and give as we chose to be the ONE to tell the ONE about the ONE true God.
Our vision is seeing people experience LIFE change through Jesus Christ.
Our mission is:
- Loving our Community - through acts of kindness
- Impacting our City - through multiplying groups and campuses
- Fortifying our Nation - through strengthening relationships, marriages, and families
- Embracing our World - through missional living.
Ways you can Participate TODAY:
Pray for you to find where God needs you to connect to missions, for the mission areas of Hermitage Hills to be actively engaging the ONE, for the ONE who serves close to home and around the world, for mission teams as they travel, and for unreached people groups. Come by the Mission's Wall in the main foyer to find out how you can pray for missions each month and get a monthly newsletter.
SERVE FIRST SUNDAY
Missions at Hermitage Hills Baptist wants to equip you with an activity for each month as a starting point for engaging and connecting with those around you. To participate each month, simply pick up the activity bag on the first Sunday of the month or go to the website (hermitagehills.com/missions) and follow the instructions. Remember to take pictures because we want to celebrate the way God involves us in His work as we love our community, impact our city, fortify our nation and embrace our world for HIM! Click HERE to see the activity for the month of November.
The Hope Wall focuses on three schools in the communities of Las Conchas, Guatemala, Busia, Kenya, and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. When you give to the One Fund, you are supporting the Hope Wall. It costs $75 per year to feed one child each day they attend school in these communities. The support from the One Fund allows our partners to minister to their communities by providing food. This act of kindness often opens the door for additional ways to minister to the child's family. We encourage you to pray for our partners, the schools, children, families, and communities. Check out the downloads below for a Hope Wall card.
Our missions fair focuses on opportunities for you to Embrace our World - GALE Mission Trip, Operation Christmas Child Drop Off Site, Poland/Ukraine Support, Elevate Ethiopia, Italy Mission Trip, and Hope Wall. We also have Room in the Inn information. Watch the picture slide show above to see the areas displayed. Information cards about each of our world opportunities can be found in the downloads below.
Ways you can participate this WEEK:
WEDNESDAYS DURING MONTH OF MISSIONS
This Wednesday, November 9th, you can participate in Wednesdays are for Serving by serving through Room in the Inn, Radical Heart, and English Classes.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
OCC is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse and collects shoebox gifts for children around the world as an expression of God’s love. The gift is not the items in the box, but instead the Gospel that is told to each child that receives a box. You can pack a physical box or pack a virtual box. The deadline is November 20th for physical boxes.
CHURCH WIDE SERVE DAY
We want to take some time this Saturday, November 12, from 10:00 am to noon to come together to serve in our mission areas. This is a great way to get to know others in the church, to learn more about the mission opportunities at Hermitage Hills Baptist Church and help our mission areas prepare to serve our community and city. Whether you are a grandchild or a grandparent, single or married, student or teacher, all are welcome to participate. To sign up, click HERE.
