At Hollywood Community Church, we take the Lord’s command to make disciples of every nation very seriously! To say it succinctly, our mission is the Great Commission. We exist to make passionate disciples of Jesus Christ, both in Hollywood, Florida and around the world.
November is a HUGE missions month for our church family. Here are several of the mission’s activities that will be taking place in the next few weeks.
Haiti Missions Team – November 4-11
Led by Dan Whiteman, our Haiti Missions Team will be ministering in the coastal city of Corail. Please pray that God would enable them to be a blessing and an encouragement to our Haitian sister church. They will give a report on their return.
Operation Christmas Child Sunday – 11/13
Last year our congregation collected more than 1050 gift shoe boxes for boys and girls around the world. We are hoping to do that many or more this year. Remember that statistics show that one out of every three children that receive a Christmas box trust Christ as their personal Savior. Let me encourage you to fill out least three boxes. Lets reach children for Christ this Christmas!
Bernadette Todd – 11/13
Bernadette Todd has a riveting story to share about her life long struggle with Muscular Dystrophy. She knows first hand, God’s amazing grace and transparently tells of her journey from despair to faith. With her personable down-to-earth style and sense of humor, she captivates and challenges audiences of all sizes. Utilizing the platform of her wheelchair, the pain of her childhood and the miracle of her survival, Bernadette delivers a powerful message that transcends racial and cultural borders worldwide and builds a bridge between people and the love and hope of Jesus Christ.
Mike & Amy Riddering Commissioning Service – 11/20
Our own Mike and Amy will be leaving for Burkina Faso at the end of the month. On November 20th we will celebrate their commissioning service. It will be a time of joy, tears and prayer as we send the Riddering family to Africa to fulfill God’s call upon their life. You will not want to miss this service!

It is going to be a great month at HCC! Let’s pray that God continues to use us to impact the world with the Gospel!
