Life Is Better In Groups

Last year about this time, we kicked of a series called Freeway and encouraged everyone to participate in a small group during the series. We had great feedback from folks about small groups. In fact, one of our new small groups kept meeting all year long! Many of you have been asking about joining an ongoing small group. So, here we go! This Sunday, September 9 at 6:00 pm, Pastor Joanie and I are hosting a small group kickoff gathering at Hood. Anyone and everyone is invited. Maybe you already are part......

Welcome Ready to Grow Play Groups!

The Harnett County Partnership for Children (HCPC) recently approached our church with an immediate need for space to host its Ready to Grow Play Group in the Dunn area.  We had to make a quick decision with little time to spread the word within our church family. So, this week we are thrilled to share the news that the HCPC is now leasing space on our third floor and this amazing new ministry is now happening on our church campus! Ready To Grow Playgroups are free and provide fun opportunities for children to......

Dirt, Spirit, and Being Human

You and I are dirt creatures. Scripture describes us as dirt sculptures made alive by the spirit of God. The Lord God formed the human from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the human became a living being. (Genesis 2:7) It’s not all that different from frosty the snowman. You know, you build a human form from snow, you give it facial features, and then something magical animates good old frosty! In the snowman’s case, it was an old silk hat. In our......

Join us Sunday mornings as we explore popular sayings that miss the point. They are simple phrases, such as: Everything happens for a reason God helps those who help themselves Love the sinner, hate the sin and others. They sound Christian – like something you might find in the Bible. We’ve all heard them.  Maybe we’ve even said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways. Discover the whole truth by comparing Christian cliches with the wisdom found in Scripture.1 From 10:00 – 10:30 am......

Faces of Faith - New Summer Series

Stories bring people together. Stories teach us. Stories comfort us. Stories challenge us. Stories inspire us. Our lives are literally made up of hundreds and thousands of stories. There are lots of stories from our faith and we tell over and over again. Some you may know by heart. But there are also dozens of stories that get overlooked, forgotten, or set aside. This summer we are going to turn back to some of those great but often unknown stories of faith! Announcing our Summer Worship Series at Hood – Faces of......

Joining Hands

Joining hands across our community is a powerful act. It symbolizes our longing to live in unity with one another. It enacts our belief that we have much in common. It embodies our hope that together we can make a difference in our community. And in a time when dissension, division, and disunion is rampant within our society, joining hands across the distance of our communities and in spite of our differences speaks to a core hope of our Christian faith and practice: “that they may all be one,” as Jesus prayed......

A Lent of Serving

“I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was homeless and you gave me a room, I was shivering and you gave me clothes, I was sick and you stopped to visit, I was in prison and you came to me.” On Sunday, Pastor Jason challenged us to see this Lenten season as an opportunity.  During this season of self-reflection and repentance we are asking you to consider Jesus’ words in Matthew 25.  We encounter people everyday that are hungry, thirsty, homeless, and......

Freeway

Freeway – a not so perfect guide to freedom…just 12 days away! I am incredibly excited for our family of faith at Hood MCC to experience this amazing journey together! Freeway is a spiritual journey for those who have realized they have spent too much of their life believing something about themselves or others or God that turns out to be not the least bit true. It’s for those who have wrestled with regrets or have been labeled or stigmatized or called something that, if we are honest, kinda hurt. Freeway is......
